San Jose, Calif. — March 31, 2021 — The @ Company, creator of a revolutionary open-source application development platform that protects personal data, today announced the appointment of Chris Swan as the company’s top engineer. Mr. Swan will be responsible for building the foundation needed to ensure global scale of the @platform.
Mr. Swan brings more than three decades of experience to his new role, working within the IT industry throughout his career in capacities ranging from engineer to Chief Technology Officer, for both startups and publicly traded companies.
“Over the course of his career, Chris has established himself as an industry innovator. I had the pleasure of working with him at Credit Suisse and look forward to his learning-first approach as our Engineer,” stated Colin Constable, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer for The @ Company. “Chris’ expertise across the IT industry, coupled with his leadership skills makes him the obvious choice to spearhead our engineering initiatives.”
The @platform equips developers with the self-serve tools they need to quickly build, launch, and market apps that offer completely new online experiences. These peer-to-peer, surveillance-free apps require no passwords, are end-to-end encrypted, and enable people to own and control their own data. The number of hyperconnected experiences possible with the @platform will increase as more @apps are built.
“The @ Company developer team has collaborated with the global Flutter and collegiate developer communities to build innovative apps,” stated Mr. Swan “I’m new to Flutter, so I’m on the same learning journey as a novice developer, which lets me see first-hand how we can make that journey easier. I will be focusing on unifying the experience for internal and external developers and streamlining the development process to grow our community.”
