My name is Chad Whitacre, and this is my homepage.
|Proofpoint 2019—||I am managing two diverse and productive software teams. Ping me if you apply!|
|Idelic 2018||As employee four at this venture-backed startup, I shifted the engineering team from off-shore contractors to in-house employees, while meeting commitments on a high-risk project and driving engineering process improvements.|
|Gratipay 2012—2017||I founded a company that moved more than $1 million from dozens of companies to hundreds of open source projects, and explored the limits of organizational transparency and openness. Gratipay is survived by a fork, Liberapay. Vive Liberapay!|
|Open Source 2002—||I grew the Gratipay project to more than 1,000 stars and 150 contributors on GitHub, and I've grown two other projects to more than 100 stars each. I also co-founded the Sustain conference in 2017.|
|The Open Organization 2016—2017 2013—2015, OCI||I furthered the conversation about organizational transparency and openness as one of Red Hat's Open Organization Ambassadors. I wrote the group's top post for 2016, and increased transparency by helping migrate from a private mailing list to public repos. Prior to that I had co-founded, and co-organized two events for, the similarly themed Open Company Initiative (OCI).|
|The Gospels 2012||I edited, designed, typeset, published, and sold out of a short-run edition of the gospels.|
