We're happy to introduce the newest member of our team, Christy Stout. She's jumping in as Engineering Manager, supporting all of our developers, their projects, and making sure we're running as efficiently as possible.
Residing in Austin, Texas, it's no surprise that Christy and her family are passionate and talented musicians. She's played the violin for many years, and in the last few has taught herself how to play guitar. On any given day, you can find Christy practicing or performing with her band, Wicked Suzies (formerly Cosmic Dust Bunnies), taking her teens to their music lessons, or whipping up something delicious to eat (homemade popcorn and cinnamon rolls are two of her many specialties).
Christy has always had an interest in math and science. Her older brother, an electrical engineer, influenced her decision to jump into the field, and as a result she holds a degree in electrical engineering. Throughout her career she's worked in many different roles, most recently engineering management. With nearly 20 years of experience in the field, Christy's the perfect fit for this role and will help make Big Cartel even better. We couldn't be more excited to have her on the team.
