Today, Vantage announces that Brooke McKim has joined full time as Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer. Brooke joins Vantage after spending three years as Head of Product at Stae, a business intelligence data platform for local governments. Prior to that, Brooke was one of the initial engineers hired at DigitalOcean where he ultimately became the first Director of Product. During his time at DigitalOcean, the organization scaled from 10 people to over 500 and revenue grew to over $250MM.
Ben Schaechter, CEO of Vantage, had this to say:
"I'm thrilled to once again be working with Brooke. He has a deep understanding of public cloud infrastructure from both a technical and product perspective. He is an outstanding leader and has my full confidence."
And from Brooke McKim:
"It feels good to be back working in the cloud space. I love solving problems and building products for developers. I believe the next big frontier to be the interaction between engineering and the rest of the business. Everyone's AWS bill is their biggest source of pain and confusion so that puts finance at the top of that list."
Brooke will be responsible for leading product and engineering at Vantage.
