Smarkets announces the addition of Russ Garrett
July 13, 2009
Smarkets is proud to announce the addition of Russ Garrett [russ.garrett.co.uk / Twitter] to our team. He brings an extensive amount of web experience to Smarkets and will head up our technical operations.
Russ loves working at startups. Prior to Smarkets, Russ was one of the first employees at Last.fm (via Audioscrobbler). He worked as System Architect for the past six years growing it from a small project to the top streaming music website that it is today. Russ also started the Hackspace Foundation which provides a collaborative environment for people to work on technology.
I am really excited that Russ is joining us. He’s one of the best in the business and will play a key role in helping Smarkets scale as we grow.
