Jay Wallingford

CTO

Jay loves brainstorming with Gorilla Logic’s engineers on new technologies – helping them to develop creative, well thought out solutions for their customers. A startup veteran who ran development organizations for Leopard (acquired by Ogilvy Mather), Symplified (acquired by RSA/EMC) and TapInfluence, Jay has “an absolute blast” leading Gorilla Logic’s talented team of developers, software engineers and scrum masters.

Prior to jumping in the startup fray, Jay served in the Peace Corps, where he taught chemistry, math and physics in Cameroon, West Africa. Jay modestly refers to himself as a “pretty good home cook,” however his cioppino is the stuff of legends.

An unabashed music lover, Jay’s current playlist includes David Gray, Gavin DeGraw, Ray LaMontagne and Rage Against the Machine “for those times when you really need to get pumped up.”
