Who I Am


Joel Rojo

I'm an infinitely curious product designer, developer, and entrepreneur. I'm passionate about technology’s potential to connect people and provide value at massive scale.

I currently live in Austin, Texas, but I come from a border town in south Texas and have lived in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Spain, Ecuador, and New York City. I'm an avid traveler, mountain biker, and surfer, and my love for music and creative films is limitless.

I'm always interested in connecting with interesting people and projects. If you think we might be a good fit, let's talk.
