Heymann brings 20 years of engineering expertise in scaling technical operations at top performing companies like Foursquare, Google, and Microsoft.
We are thrilled to announce that Harry Heymann is joining Attentive’s leadership team as Chief Technical Officer (CTO), overseeing the management of the company’s technical operations and rapidly growing engineering team.
Heymann was Foursquare’s first employee, joining the founders as Vice President of Engineering. He was responsible for leading the core engineering decisions that set the technical foundation for the platform’s fast growth, as well as writing the initial version of the server-side code. Heymann also spearheaded recruitment for the engineering team to scale the company and fuel constant innovation, ultimately managing a team of nearly 100 engineers.
“We are thrilled to have Harry join the Attentive leadership team,” says Brian Long, Co-Founder and CEO of Attentive. “Harry’s depth of experience in identifying opportunities for innovation—and then setting strategy and leading teams to effectively execute those plans—is absolutely vital as Attentive continues to break new ground in the conversational commerce space.”
In August, we announced our $40 million Series B investment led by top venture capital firm Sequoia. The funding is being used to accelerate growth and scale teams to meet increasing market demand. As CTO, Heymann will play an integral part in actualizing this innovation and shaping corporate strategy as Attentive experiences exponential growth.
“Attentive quickly established itself as the category leader in the mobile messaging software space, and I can’t wait to continue to scale that success,” says Heymann. “The majority of my career has been dedicated to architecting and actualizing scaled technology platforms for some of the world’s most impactful technology companies. I relate strongly to Attentive’s culture of investing in innovation—the team has a clear passion for identifying growth opportunities and building thoughtful solutions.”
