Hi my name is Chad Arimura.
I am a 3x entrepreneur, most recently as co-founder and CEO of Iron.io
where we grew a multi-million dollar ARR business helping pioneer serverless computing including some of the earliest usages of the term
"serverless" in 2010. We sold the company in 2017 and joined Oracle.
On joining Oracle as Vice President of Serverless, I established the serverless organization, under which produced The Fn Project and later
making Oracle one of the only major clouds to offer a functions-as-a-service platform largely built on upstream open source code.
Once the serverless org was fully established, I moved to the Java Platform Group to help build out the developer relations team.
I try my best to lead with passion, integrity, and empathy, and am always striving to be better in these areas.
You can find me on Twitter and Medium.
I'm married to the amazing Sarah Arimura,
dad to Astrid (born 4/28/19),
and dog dad to Yodel.
I still love to code when I have time.
I speak quite often about Java, serverless computing, entrepreneurship, building teams, culture, and other topics.
