As CTO, Andrew Brown leads a highly-skilled team of engineers, overseeing the development of the technology that is at the heart of Oyster’s products, while still making time to write code himself.
Prior to starting Oyster, Andrew worked at Google, where he optimized ads for DoubleClick for Publishers, the world’s largest display ad serving system. Before that, he helped build the platform underpinning Microsoft's Office 365 for Business.
Andrew’s perseverance is one of his most notable qualities, contributing to both his climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro and his determination to camp out for three months to secure a ticket to the Duke-UNC basketball game.
