Welcome Preston Thompson, Software Engineer


I’m so thrilled to announce that Preston Thompson has joined Useful as one of our first Software Engineers. I can’t wait to build the fastest storytelling experience for product teams with him.

Welcome Preston Thompson

What makes Preston awesome?

Preston spent 8 years helping Braze grow from 30 employees to over 1,200. During his time at Braze, he worked on and helped form a variety of backend engineering teams across disciplines like product development, data infrastructure, cloud-native applications, and software development lifecycle technology. Preston helped design and implement two of Braze's core features: Canvas, a user journey orchestration tool, and Currents, a real time event data stream.

Why are we so excited?

We’re so fired up to have Preston aboard as he brings a wealth of experience growing world-class engineering teams. Not only has he built multiple products and teams from 0 → 1, he has a real passion for high quality software, leveraging the best tools and practices from the broader software engineering community. He’s remarkably thoughtful and deliberate in his execution, and we’re incredibly grateful to have him on the team as we bring the first version of Useful to market.
