JUMO today announced the appointment of Chris Pinkham as an active independent director of the company, effective immediately.

Chris left his role as Vice President of Engineering at Twitter in February 2017.

Pinkham will be working with JUMO’s leadership team on technical and product strategy.

“Chris is an Internet and cloud pioneer,” said Andrew Watkins-Ball, Founder and CEO of JUMO. “We are building large scale, high impact technology teams and Chris brings an awesome combination of creativity and scars to the table.”

In addition to serving as VP Engineering at Twitter, Chris has made his mark in various technology roles during his 30-year career. In 1993, he cofounded South Africa's first ISP, Internet Africa, which was sold to UUNET in 1996. At Amazon.com he ran global network and systems engineering as VP Engineering and led the creation of EC2 - the popular elastic cloud computing service. In 2008, he cofounded Nimbula, a high-profile infrastructure software startup which was acquired by Oracle in 2013. Thereafter, he led Oracle’s development team responsible for public cloud services before joining Twitter in February 2015.

“JUMO is a special company on an important mission to bring high quality and affordable financial services to underserved communities. I’m excited and looking forward to assisting in whatever way I can,” said Chris Pinkham.

Born in Singapore, Chris is a graduate of the University of Cape Town.
