my name is Collin Thompson, I’m originally from Toronto, Canada-but grew up in sunny Los Angeles. I currently live and work in Hong Kong.
I’m working on a marketplace for digital product development services.
it’s essentially a two-sided marketplace, or we prefer to call it a membership community.
We connect the world’s leading brands to top technology developers and product designers.
Our goal is to digitise the delivery of complex knowledge based services.
We want to help entrepreneurs rapidly prototype and build digital products, and also help international software development companies, big and small, connect with high quality clients, grow their business, and make an impact with their products/services.
I’m a designer by focus, but my background has been in between venture capital and entrepreneurship. I started and sold a ecommerce sneaker/trainer company about 6 years ago.
I’m a fan of Node.js, Gatsby, and Ghost for content publishing. I’m a tools fanatic. I spend about 20% of my day researching new tools and Saas products. I’m loving the JAMstack movement/ headless API trend which brought me to Moltin.
the great thing about the product is that you can do almost anything you can imagine, the challenging part is that you can do almost anything you can imagine…so getting started and testing this is where I’m at right now.
I’m a huge lifestyle and design fan, so outside of work, which is rare because I love design and product. you can find me at nice restaurants, I’m a foodie, travelling and immersing myself in great interiors, learning languages, I love movies, super huge Politico junkie, love journalism and writing, and waxing poetic about the nexus of technology and culture.
I’m excited about learning and developing my skills and career with the Moltin community!
If anyone is interested in taking on a developer/coding Padawan, please find me in the marketplaces thread as I will be asking alot of architecture, tools, and programming questions there.
