I’m happy to announce the addition of Thomas Santero to the Basho family. Thomas (who also goes by “Tom”) is joining as Technical Evangelist and will be part of the Community Team.

He’s based in Staten Island and will be focusing his time on bringing Riak to developers everywhere along the Eastern seaboard. If you’re anywhere near Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, etc., and aren’t yet using Riak, Tom will soon change this. He’ll also be supporting global community growth in various venues as Riak adoption continues to explode in all corners of the world.

Tom can be found on Twitter as tsantero and goes by the same nick on IRC. Say “hello” when you get the chance and ask him a hard question about Riak.

*We are hiring another Technical Evangelist based in London or Amsterdam. If you want to help us take over Europe, get in touch with me – mark@basho.com.

Welcome, Tom!
