We are very excited to announce that the BigDoor family has grown by two. This week, we welcome Bill Dias and Gerry Narvaja to the team. Both Bill and Gerry will be working with the internal team, headed by Jeff Malek BigDoor’s Co-Founder and CTO.
Gerry Narvaja comes to us with decades of experience in the IT industry. He will be working as a MySQL DBA here at Bigdoor. He has a degree in electronic engineering and an MBA with a management info systems focus. He has worked extensively with databases and has focused on MySQL for the past decade, making his expertise invaluable to our team. He was at MySQL AB early on and left just after the Sun acquisition earlier this year. Gerry calls himself a certifiable geek with a passion for photography, computer strategy games and computer hacking when he is not at work. He also co-hosts the OurSQL podcast with MYSQL community leader and podcast creator Sheeri Cabral. When asked about his thoughts on BigDoor after a week on the team he said, “It’s all about the intensity and the fun of a startup in a new industry!”
Bill Dias is our new Systems Architect. Bill comes to us with an accounting degree with management info systems focus. He is originally from southern California. He has years of experience in the IT industry in support, operations and development. Bill previously worked at Zango, Keith Smith and Jeff Malek’s previous company and they are both excited to have him on the team again. Bill has prior startup experience as well, which makes him a great addition to our ever growing team.
