Our Team

  • Brent

    Founder & CEO

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.

  • Cindy

    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.

  • Amanda

    Data Manager, Oakland

    Amanda manages our data, with a particular focus on cleaning up business name data to ensure a great user experience. Raw transaction data is usually a mess, but Amanda combines her SQL detective skills with her human-centered design skills to optimize our product. She studied engineering at Cornell and created algorithms while leading research on designing water treatment plants. Amanda has worked as an environmental activist and community organizer, and also managed the best ice cream shop in Brooklyn. She enjoys playing games, organizing sunrise dance parties, and singing her heart out.

  • Karthi

    Product Manager, Oakland

    Karthi is joining the MoneyVoice team as a product manager. His role is to look at the current version of our product, reimagine what the next version should look like, and help us bring that vision to life. Previously he went to Stanford and then spent the better part of a decade at Facebook, helping to scale their nascent operations department, co-writing the first version of the user content policy, and improving product quality on both the Events and Location teams. When he’s not in the studio composing or researching music, you can find him tearing up the nearest dance floor.

  • Elisabeth

    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.

  • Paul

    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.

  • Aaron

    Design & Front End Development (consultant)

    Aaron is a designer, artist, and front-end developer. He has deep experience in the solar industry as well as consulting with a variety of clients, such as IDEO.
