Ariel Illouz

20+ years building software, 10+ years leading dev teams, 5 start-ups, 3 daughters... he doesn't look old enough for any of it! Ask Ariel Illouz what gets him out of bed every morning and he'll give you a long list: his family, working alongside his team, watching customers use his products for the first time and, last but not least, building cool shit. "I like the dynamic start-up atmosphere. It's amazing to see your ideas and effort get out to the world in real-time." For the past few years, Ariel has been obsessed with what it means to be data-driven. "Dev teams have an incredible amount of data about their applications but we have very little data about how we work together internally. I think we're missing an opportunity. That's why I joined LinearB." At LinearB, Ariel and his crew are building a new kind of collaboration home for dev teams. "After planning ends and building begins, dev teams need a lot of information in real-time to keep up with all the decisions being made every hour. The truth lies somewhere between Git, Jira and Slack. We tap into that truth to help dev teams continuously improve."
