Journey from Developer to Entrepreneur
Join us this week as we learn about the career path that took Jim from developer to management and now an entrepreneur.
Jim Gibbs, a NY native attended Carnegie Mellon University’s school of Computer Science in Pittsburgh. Leaving early, Jim now has almost 40 years of experience as a software developer and 25 years in management. He has helped build everything from medical software to platforms that handled 30% of the mobile retail sales in the US.
Jim has a philosophy of “Fix Things that Ruin your Day.” And as a regular receiver of parking tickets, this led him and his long-time programming partner to create Meter Feeder, the parking payment app that enables people to pay for parking with one button tap. He has a similar outlook in life advocating and instilling the principle that the world will be a better place if people keep taking chances and lead by example.
