Today we are talking to Joe Kinsella, the CTO of CloudHealth by VMware, and we discuss key takeaways from scaling a company, the entrepreneurial mindset of having the will to make it happen, and establishing a culture of goal setting to get everyone rowing in the same direction.
All of this, right here, right now, on the Modern CTO Podcast!
Joe Kinsella is the CTO and Founder of CloudHealth Technologies. He is an entrepreneur, technologist and executive who’s passionate about Boston, startups, baseball, and all things cloud (not necessarily in that order). He founded CloudHealth in 2012 with the goal of disrupting the growing complexity of cloud computing. His company has rapidly grown into a global leader in public and private cloud management for the enterprise, partners and SMBs.
Joe was previously VP of engineering at the Amazon-backed cloud archiving company Sonian, where he was a pioneer of using the multiple public clouds at scale, and also building one of the earliest Cloud Centers of Excellence (CCoE). He was also a managing director at Dell, where he led global engineering teams delivering multiple SaaS products, and VP of Engineering at SilverBack Technologies (acquired by Dell), where he helped pioneer remote IT management software. He also has the unusual distinction of having been a member of the “first Scrum team”, as a founding member of the Easel Synchronicity team before the advent of the Agile Manifesto. He is an advisor to the University of Massachusetts Boston Entrepreneur Center, a member of the Forbes Technology Council and a 2017 Boston CIO of the Year award winner.
