Soundstripe has promoted Jack Whitis from Director of Engineering to Vice President of Engineering.
As VP of Engineering, Whitis will continue to oversee the team of software engineers and user interface designers that develop Soundstripe’s digital products, and will focus on technology strategy and growth efforts. He will be based in Soundstripe’s Nashville office.
Whitis began his career in software development almost a decade ago as one of the first graduates of Nashville Software School (NSS). Following NSS, he worked under the tutelage of Chris McIntyre, founder and product designer at Southern Made, a digital solutions lab that specializes in innovative marketing activations and developing web platforms. He later accepted a position as a Senior Software Engineer at free-to-play gaming startup Chalkline Sports, where he developed a white-labeled gaming platform used by TwinSpires and other notable sportsbooks to acquire new customers.
Whitis received his B.S. degree in Audio Engineering Technology from Belmont University, and his move to Soundstripe in 2019 represented a shift to the familiar domain of music production as well as an engineering management role. He has held multiple roles at the company, working his way up from Senior Software Engineer to Director of Engineering and now to VP of Engineering.
“Jack has been an invaluable asset to the team at Soundstripe for the last two years,” says Co-Founder and CTO of Soundstripe Trevor Hinesley. “As we continue to innovate on behalf of our customers and evolve our technology, Jack’s technical expertise, operational excellence, and uniquely suited domain knowledge will play an even more important part in our strategic growth.”
“Working at Soundstripe has been a great experience, and I’m excited to deepen my involvement by taking on this new role,” says Whitis. “I feel a strong connection to the people I work with and the products we build together. I’m honored to help advance Soundstripe’s technology initiatives through this expanded role.”
