HipChat State of the Union
Pete Curley and Garret Heaton, Atlassian
Pete Curley is the designer and co-founder of HipChat. An entrepreneur at heart, Pete sold his first company HipCal out of his college fraternity with fellow HipChat founders Chris Rivers and Garret Heaton. Pete believes in making products better (and more fun) than they need to be.
Garret is one of the co-founders of HipChat and has been working on its backend systems and servers since 2009. He now leads a team of 10 engineers who are taking HipChat to the next level, all while trying to keep things simple and fun to use.
