SENIOR DESIGNER

Stephanie
Briones

🎉 It’s important to have exactly one perfectionist on a design team. Stephanie is our perfectionist.

Stephanie grew up playing Super Mario 3 and attending 4-H. Not much has changed. She still plays games (on a computer she built herself) and goes hiking on the weekends.

VICE PRESIDENT OF ENGINEERING

Arun
Agrahri

🤓Obsessed with creating simple, pain reliever products (especially in mobile, email, messaging platforms). In his free time, he likes to read and explore the city with friends and family.

Arun has been the CFO of the family but never got serious until he read the book “A random walk down wall street”.

MANAGING DIRECTOR

Uri
Pomerantz

🚀In the fintech school of karate, Uri is a black belt. He’s worked to expand access to financial services since college—from founding a mideast micro-lender to building a VC in Sierra Leone.

Sometimes, he even sleeps (but dreams of Twine). He refuses to eat lunch without Sriracha involved.

SENIOR FULL-STACK ENGINEER

Bill
Kaufman

“Hey Bill, what programming languages do you know?” — “All of them.”

Bill was a nerd before nerds were cool. He came to California to study at UC Berkeley and has ridden the tech booms ever since. He’s excited to work on a product that helps people (and involves complex math).

MOBILE ENGINEER

Ian
Luo

🌶 Ian has been going to Burning Man for twice as long as he’s been coding. And he’s been coding for a long time.

It’s nice to have someone “cool” on the Twine team. Ian is very generous with his Spotify playlists and PR reviews.

MOBILE ENGINEER

Yael
Rubenstein

🤗 Yael is a real engineer’s engineer. WWDC is her favorite holiday and MVVM is her favorite conversational topic.

Yael spent her formative years in Israel, where she earned a BS in Software Engineering, sold sausages at the mall and won 1st place in a national swimming contest.

DIRECTOR OF DESIGN

Cassidy
Clawson

What is design? Solving problems for users? Crafting memorable experiences? The careful organization of lines and letters?

Cassidy hasn’t been the same since he saw a UFO in Sedona, Arizona. His favorite shape is the triangle.

DIRECTOR OF PRODUCT MANAGEMENT

Shirley
Leong

🐿 Shirley is driven by the chance to make a real difference in other’s lives using creativity and technology, particularly in fin tech and health tech.

Shirley is a thinker and a hurdler. She always makes sure the whole team knows where we’re headed, and that we get there on time (and in style).

LEAD ENGINEER

Michael
Boardman

🤖 Michael joins Twine after a decade of work on robots and secret space stuff.

He is equal parts fancy and nice. You’ll probably find Michael at an artisanal cheese tasting — and you’ll definitely find Michael when you need help with your dev environment.

DIRECTOR OF ANALYTICS & BEHAVIORAL ECONOMICS

Scott
Burns

He studied why some countries get wealthier—now he’s applying academic insights to help American families reach their financial goals.

Scott met Uri at Harvard’s Kennedy School. After a time managing emerging market investments, he rejoined him in California to start what we now know as Twine.

TEAM OPERATIONS MANAGER

Nahyun
Kim

At Twine, your favorite snack is always in stock. Your video conference link always works. It’s not magic—it’s Nahyun.

When not at at her desk with her guardian pet “Dino”, Nahyun is probably strolling the streets of San Francisco. She says hi to every dog she passes.

MARKETING

Kai
Hansen

Kai is often found in the lab (with a pen and a pad) tinkering with marketing and growth strategies to help people live happier lives.

When his nose isn’t in a book, Kai can be spotted exploring his new home in the Bay Area.
