About Tom

I was Sr. Product manager with eBay for 3.5 years- launched first cross-border returns platform, brought in $25mil USD incremental revenue, received critical talent award from CEO. Got university degree in computer science at 15 and MBA degree at 20, and used to run my own startup years back.

I believe my key strength as a co-founder lies in being extremely driven, strong in product / marketing / analytics skills, fully committed financially and emotionally , domain expertise in eCommerce, and most importantly I have a very long-term view of running a company, as opposed to achieving any quick exit.

I'm looking for a strong technical co founder to join force. In short - 4 things I'm looking for in co-founder: ambitious, paranoid about quality, creativity, and integrity.
I care much less about whether you did eCommerce before, but I care a whole lot about your fundamentals as an engineer, and also you share the values in building a world class team, being extremely product and long-term focused, and value creativity.
