How we do it

Tango History

Mission

Ken, Dan, & Brian dropped out from Harvard Business School in 2020 to be the co-founders of Tango. Behind the decision was a shared passion for work excellence and coaching.

Experience

Ken, an Uber product and data vet, overcame the gamut of operational challenges scaling at Uber. Dan, a B2B SaaS investor at General Catalyst and active mentor made it a constant mission to capture and coach best practices . Brian, a lifelong hacker, teacher, and entrepreneur, knew that productivity could be analyzed and studied.

Today

Tango is a small but rapidly growing SaaS company focused on Workflow Intelligence ... for everyone. Learning on the job is way too hard. Job attrition is too high. Mastery should be achievable for all.

Hi, I'm Ken, the CEO of Tango. Before setting out on a mission to celebrate how work gets done, I spent 4+ years at Uber riding the rollercoaster of a generational company. After getting my feet wet with entrepreneurship at Atomic VC, I went to HBS. There, I met Dan and Brian and we founded Tango.

Hey I'm Gio. I lead Growth at Tango. Before, I spent 4 years at General Catalyst as a b2b SaaS investor gawking at the leaders of portfolio companies like Stripe, Gusto, & Hubspot.  I then was on the IPO filing team at Livongo for 8 months before going to HBS where Ken, Brian and I started Tango.

Hi! I'm Brian, CTO of Tango. Before Tango, I started companies in education and blockchain and learned invaluable lessons about leading early-stage teams.

Whether it's solving problems on my own or helping others, I live for that “aha!” moment and all of the endorphins that come with it. It's probably why I enjoy working at Tango so much.

On the weekends, you can find me treasure hunting in the Rocky Mountains, making homemade pizzas, or playing around with GPT-3 (am I even real?)

Hey there! I'm Kristie and I am an Engineering Lead at Tango, where I help deliver a world-class product experience for our users.

I've been in the start-up world for over half a decade, working in developer tools (Docker) and cryptocurrency (Anchorage) before joining Tango to make on-the-job learning fun and effective.

Brian and I were engineering classmates at Columbia University, where we built projects together in the government and cryptocurrency spaces.

When I'm not at the keyboard crafting code and jamming to dance tunes, you can find me hiking, cycling, or surfing and taking before and after photos.

Hi, I'm Garrett. I have over 13 years of experience in tech, focusing mostly on iOS and backend engineering. Prior to Tango, I started companies in the social, real estate, and medical spaces. Most-recently I did a stint at Cameo, where I learned one recipe for rocketing a company out of its early stages.

On weekends, I'm usually chasing entrepreneurial dreams, hanging out with my family, and working on my old house in Eagle Rock, Los Angeles.

I love reading sci-fi books, listening to high-energy music, and expanding my technical toolkit. I take my coffee black, cars with manual transmissions, and scotch either neat or maybe with one rock.

Hey I'm Will! I worked at a variety of places including Microsoft, Indeed, and now Tango.

In college I got into software engineering through the desire to build video games. But I've since branched out. When I'm not building new features or fixing bugs, I'm usually indulging in one of my countless hobbies.

Some examples of my eternally growing lists of interests are: Guitar, performance driving/riding, flight sims, drawing, video games, bouldering, and the list continues to grow.
