Welcome Dana, Joe and Jesse

Heavybit welcomes Dana Oshiro, Joe Ruscio, and Jesse Robbins to its partnership team.


I’m thrilled to announce three additions to the Heavybit partnership.

First, we’re adding Dana Oshiro as a General Partner. Dana has been our Director of Programs and has helped build Heavybit’s curriculum, operations, and team. She’s done an incredible job, and will continue to support member companies and drive Heavybit’s curriculum and advisory network.

Second, Jesse Robbins and Joe Ruscio are joining Heavybit as Part-time Partners alongside James Lindenbaum.

Jesse has already been informally advising Heavybit founders and has a tremendous understanding of building large developer communities and growing startup revenues. Previously, he created Chef and Founded the Velocity Conference where he helped ignite the DevOps movement.

Joe founded Librato, a Heavybit alumni company that was successfully acquired by SolarWinds. He’s been a long-time contributor to our community and brings in-depth experience in go-to-market, scaling organizations, and fundraising.

Welcome to the team!
