Parnell Springmeyer

Hi! I'm Parnell Springmeyer, I live in Austin Texas and I'm a serial entrepreneur.

In 2014 my first company, Whoosh Traffic, was acquired and I'm also an alumnus of the 2013 Austin Techstars class.

My expertise in software is diverse and includes systems engineering, devops, distributed computing, client-side web applications, and rich web data visualization. I have shipped software in Haskell, Erlang, and Python. I do well at marrying business requirements with technology constraints.

I excel at reducing the execution path of a business and the product implementation down to a minimal set of steps with the lean and experiment driven approach. Customer development, market research, go-to market formulation, and codifying the value prop into a minimum viable product are all processes I've used successfully.
