Reverb Names Jason Wain Chief Technology Officer
Reverb announced that it has appointed Jason Wain as chief technology officer on Feb. 18. Wain has more than a decade of technology and leadership experience, most recently serving as senior director of engineering at Etsy.
Under Wain’s leadership, Reverb plans to continue expanding its product and engineering teams, with a focus on adding engineering managers, engineers and data analysts to the team.
“Reverb has achieved incredible growth to date and we have nothing but opportunity to continue growing the impact of our world-class tech team here in Chicago,” said Wain. “There are a lot of best practices I can bring to the team based on my seven years at Etsy, but what I’m most excited about are the opportunities that come with building tech for an industry as unique and complex as the musical instrument market.”
Reverb CEO David Mandelbrot said this in a statement: “Jason’s knowledge and experience with optimizing marketplaces and sustainably scaling teams will be invaluable to this next phase of growth at Reverb. Not only does he bring the skills needed to execute a clear product strategy and measure results, but he also understands how to grow and nurture a marketplace that both users and team members are extremely passionate about.”
In Wain’s former role as senior director of engineering at Etsy, he led the tech teams responsible for enabling buyers to effectively search within Etsy’s vast inventory, as well as creating and launching tools that help sellers promote their listings to more buyers.
