Philip I. Thomas

I am product-oriented engineer based in San Francisco. Previously, I was the Founder and CEO of Staffjoy, a workforce scheduling startup funded by leading venture capitalists, that shut down. I graduated in 2013 from Washington University in St. Louis with majors in Systems Engineering and Physics. After graduation, I worked as a Senior Software Engineer at OpenDNS through its $635M acquisition by Cisco. In 2015 I became a Fellow at Y Combinator. I pursue diverse interests. I practice Krav Maga, maintain a strict ketogenic diet, and tinker with fountain pens. In the past, I spent three years on a salsa dance team, worked in venture capital, studied stress signaling pathways in a human pathogen, and started a meetup with thousands of members.
