Dyn, a provider of Internet Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), announced the hiring of Claudia Santoro as its new Director of Email Engineering and Dave Connors as VP of Technical Operations.
According to a release, in addition, Andrew Sullivan, previously Director of Labs, has been promoted to Director of DNS Engineering.
"We have added three rock stars to our engineering team," said Dyn CTO Cory von Wallenstein. "Recruiting talent like this shows our commitment to engineering excellence and ensures that while we continue scaling, we will be producing the very best products in the world."
Santoro knows firsthand the challenges and opportunities in the email delivery market, the company noted, bringing with her a wealth of knowledge and experience in scaling engineering teams. Prior to Dyn, she was the Chief Technology Officer at Vsnap, a Boston-based video messaging startup that she helped cofound.
Prior to that, the native of Rome, Italy, was the VP of Engineering at Exit41, a venture-backed company in Andover, MA. Santoro led Exit41's reinvention from a point-of-sale software provider to a provider of turnkey web and mobile ordering services for restaurants. Over five million transactions per year are being processed through this system. Before Exit41, Santoro held engineering roles at IBM and Epsilon.
Connors brings years of experience as VP, Operations at Constant Contact into his new role as VP, Technical Operations. In this role, Connors - a Yale graduate in engineering -- will be leading Dyn's technical teams as they continue to scale.
"Dave specializes in building web operations teams and capacity planning for large-scale infrastructure projects, making him a perfect fit," said von Wallenstein.
Sullivan has been working on future innovations for Dyn for the past year as Director of Labs. In his new role as Director of DNS Engineering, the company added, he brings that same pioneering spirit to the DNS team, ensuring the company is always looking toward the future of the Internet.
Sullivan has long been a leading voice in the DNS and Internet community and previously worked as the Director of Name Services at Afilias and as an Internet Scientist at Shinkuro, Inc.
Dyn also announced the hiring of Paul Mailhot as VP, Business Operations. Mailhot, who comes from 19 years at Autodesk, is responsible for organization, design and development across the entire business, technology systems to support growth, including corporate IT, and strategic planning for the future. Mailhot welcomes the challenge of moving from a large multinational company to a smaller, fast paced growth company.
