Our Team

  • Brent Schulkin

    Founder & CEO

    Brent has spent his career helping people use their spending power to have a positive impact on the world. He is the founder of Carrotmob, the global consumer movement that has spent over $1M in hundreds of grassroots campaigns around the world to help businesses make environmental improvements. He founded Virgance, an incubator for social enterprises. That company evolved into One Block Off The Grid, a solar energy company that was funded by NEA, acquired twice, and now powers NRG's home solar division. He founded The Spring, a loyalty program app for restaurants. He is also a founder and General Partner at Rhyme Combinator.

  • Michael Durand

    Founder & CTO

    Michael has 10 years of experience managing technical teams. He was previously CTO of LocoMobi. Before that he spent 3 years as VP of Engineering at QuickPay. He has started multiple other companies, including being CEO of Butterflive, a failed SaaS ecommerce provider of real-time insights and engagement tools. He earned a master's degree in engineering in Lyon, France. He also founded a record label, writes songs for French pop bands, and is always hacking and tinkering with his modular synthesizers.

  • Cindy Amegah

    Managing Director, Paris

    Cindy started and leads our engineering office in Paris. An engineer and software developer with a masters in computer engineering, Cindy has over a decade of experience managing technical projects. Most recently she has been leading teams at a large aerospace company in Toulouse, France. She is a master of project management who can guide the strategy, train the developers, or get deep into the code herself. Cindy's commitment to our shared values make her the perfect leader to build a French team with a Silicon Valley mindset and workplace culture. She is also really into fly fishing.

  • Antoine Monnet

    Lead Developer, Paris

    Antoine uses his indefatigable smile to oversee the deployment of good vibes. He is also a talented and experienced engineer and expert in signal and image processing, holding patents related to video movement analysis as well as good vibe conveyance methods. He spent the last decade working at a major French ISP, designing, building, and overseeing systems to send TV and video content to millions of devices. He is a geek who spends lots of time exploring new technologies. He also likes spending time in the Brittany region of France, hiking with his wife and kids.

  • Nicolas Parot Alvarez

    Big Data Architect, Paris

    Nicolas works on data science, data pipelines, and managing all our data infrastructure needs. He has experience using all but one of these tools: Spark, Scala, HDFS, Hive, Kafka, HBase, Phoenix, Solr, and Naked Mole Rat. Despite being a nerd, Nicolas is a 3rd degree black belt in karate. If they gave out black belts for guitar he would probably have one. And one for physics, too. He has used physics simulations and experimental optics to investigate exoplanets. His passions include science popularization, scientific skepticism, ecology, peace, traveling and the notion of world citizenship.

  • Elisabeth Guibet

    HR Manager, Paris

    Elisabeth keeps our Paris office running smoothly. She is in charge of HR, accounting, taxes, onboarding, training, and a variety of other administrative roles. She has 20 years of accounting experience, and she most recently spent 7 years at another French tech company where she was in charge of accounting, HR, procurement, and more. When she left they had to replace her with two people, which is why we never intend to let her leave. When she's not working, one of her favorite activities is knitting. We're not saying she's a better knitter than you... but we're not NOT saying that.

  • Sophie Speer

    Marketing, Oakland (consultant)

    Sophie helps new people discover MoneyVoice and understand why it is so exciting! If you've received a nice note from us, there's a good chance it came from her. Sophie graduated from Santa Clara University and worked at some really cool nonprofits, making an impact on issues like food systems, homelessness, the arts and education. Then she discovered the power of using tech for good, and has worked with cause-based tech companies in content, strategy, and growth marketing. She side-hustles as a private chef and cooking teacher, sings in the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, and adores her fat cat, Irma.

  • Paul Chapotet

    Dev Ops Engineer (consultant)

    Paul helps us keep our technical infrastructure rock solid. He is a cloud enthusiast, all-5 AWS certified and experienced Google Platform architect. With a strong Linux and networking background, he started his cloudy adventure as a Solutions Architect at Scalr, a cloud management platform in San Francisco. After several years at QuickPay with Michael, Paul joined Cloudreach as a Cloud Consultant helping customers in Europe to migrate their data centers to the cloud, as well as exploring serverless and microservices architectures. Paul is also into hiking and kitesurfing.
