Hi, I’m Paul Mestemaker.
I run CleverPoint LLC, a technology consulting firm based in San Francisco.
Quick rundown of who I am:
Born and raised in the midwest.
I started my first business when I was 15 as a full-stack engineer building web applications for Fortune 500 companies.
Worked at Microsoft for 7 years.
Spent the last couple of years learning how to build mobile apps (Objective-C/Cocoa Touch), web apps (Ruby on Rails, Postgres/MySQL), internet marketing (SEO, email marketing), and analytics (Python/Pandas/SQLAlchemy, Conversion rate optimization, funnel analysis, cohort analysis with tools like Google Analytics, MixPanel, and custom built solutions made by me).
I used to co-host a weekly tech news show.
I have occasionally performed standup comedy.
I’m available for about 4 speaking gigs at conferences and colleges/universities per year. I can talk about all sorts of topics: the importance of metrics, product management, entrepreneurship, the balance of tech and business, and more. Some of my favorite gigs have been: University of Michigan and MIT’s Sloan School of Business.
