Eliot Shepard

Hello. I'm a software developer who has led cross-functional teams and twice been a CTO. I help companies define products aligned with their strategic goals, hone their development process, and refine the way they take products to market. I can also make evaluations and recommendations around technology choices.

My strengths are incisiveness in problem discovery and definition, and delivering a straightforward, actionable point of view based on what I learn.

Most recently I was a VP of Product for Vox Media, which acquired the network of media brands (Eater, Curbed & Racked) where I was a partner and CTO since its founding in 2004. I've also worked as a developer for Reuters, Sony, the Smithsonian Institution, and as a photographer.

If you're interested in working together, please send me a note.
