About Jeremy Gray

I’ve spent a long time working with business partners across the healthcare, credit card, payroll, and commodities trading spaces implementing technology solutions that drive business outcomes. During these projects, I’ve had the privilege to work with a lot of high-performing and multidisciplinary teams and have seen how they succeed and fail. I love how the cloud has changed the way we work and am excited to see what amazing new technology the future brings.

When I’m not building things at work I enjoy making things on my 3d printer and laser cutter, along with making some sawdust in the garage. My wife and I live in Louisville, Kentucky with our three children.
