Reiss is a technology industry veteran with over 30 years of sales and C-level business leadership experience. His career history includes building and leading high-velocity sales teams, selling numerous enterprise IT systems management and security software products, vertical market technologies and sales enablement platforms. Jim has extensive open source experience, pioneering one of the first embedded Linux offerings in the market and more recently, helping grow and see the successful acquisition of Zend Technologies, the global entity behind the open source PHP web-programming language. He has both inside and enterprise sales leadership experience and is passionate about driving a healthy sales funnel using his broad experience in demand generation, go-to-market strategies and customer-centric sales methodologies.
"The world is full of enormous volumes of data, and the true potential can only be revealed by rendering it in a spatial environment," said Reiss. "Boundless is at the forefront of unlocking that potential using their open, scalable and high-performance array of products. I think we are only scratching the surface in terms of what the future holds for both geospatial technology, and Boundless as a key enabler."
