Ian White

Ian White (CEO / CTO) is the former Founder and CTO of Sailthru, the marketing cloud that delivers 8 billion personalized newsletter emails per month for hundreds of brands like JustFab and Sports Illustrated. At Sailthru, Ian built and designed the technology and successfully scaled both the technology and business to 180 employees and $48 million in funding. Sailthru was honored as the #30 fastest-growing company on the Inc 5000.

Prior to Sailthru, Ian was the first technical lead and ongoing technical advisor at Business Insider, architecting and designing the publishing platform that today powers the highest-traffic business website on the Internet. Business Insider was acquired for $450 million by Axel Springer in one of the biggest media tech deals in history.

A die-hard Boston sports fan, Ian brought the local sports newspaper Barstool Sports online; it now is a top-1000 US website and was acquired by The Chernin Group. He also was a key developer at Money-Media, acquired by the Financial Times.

An inaugural MongoDB Master, Ian was the first person besides MongoDB's creators to run MongoDB in production. He has been named multiple times to the SAI 100 list of New York's most influential people in tech.

Ian has been programming since he was ten years old and enjoys contributing to open-source projects he admires and uses, such as Dropwizard, Ansible, and Formik. Ian holds a degree in Computer Science from Brown University.
