Render Welcomes Meagan Gamache as Head of Product
Render’s continued growth, including a 400% increase in their customer base in 2022, leads to a strategic new hire to lead product development
SAN FRANCISCO, January 31, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Render, a unified cloud services platform, today announced the appointment of Meagan Gamache as Render’s Head of Product. Gamache will lead the product and work with engineering teams to expand Render’s product offerings, increase ease of use, and improve the overall developer experience.
Gamache is a product leader and prior software engineer who brings a decade of experience in building innovative products and leading cross-functional teams at Webflow, Figma, Slack and Heroku.
"Running software in the cloud has ballooned in complexity, but developer tooling hasn’t kept up," said Gamache. "The next cloud leader will be a platform that gives developers full access to all capabilities available from modern infrastructure platforms without the operational overhead. Achieving this will require keen insight into how developers design and collaborate on software. I’m thrilled to join the incredibly talented team at Render and bring my experience working on best-in-class products for developers."
Gamache began her career as an infrastructure engineer at Heroku, one of Render’s top competitors, where she led product and engineering for the original platform. After Heroku, she was a founding member of Slack’s platform team and built developer experience for the first applications built on Slack. Later in her career, she launched Figma Organization, which enabled teams of all sizes and roles to collaborate and contribute to the design process.
"As Render scales from hundreds of thousands to millions of users, we will remain a developer first organization," said Anurag Goel, Founder and CEO of Render. "Meagan is the perfect person to lead product management given her experience building first-generation cloud platform tools and designing software for Slack and Figma which set the industry bar for ease of use and productivity. Most companies don’t have the resources and expertise to deal with the complexity of AWS, GCP and Heroku, and now they have a better alternative with Render."
