Associate Product Manager
Bringing with him his background in robotics, cybersecurity, and agriculture technology, Brad originally joined Pendo as a back-end engineer. He spent nearly two years developing the product for Pendo and is excited to merge his technical perspective with product led design. When he is not telling non sequitur jokes with his team, you can find him leading a nonprofit ocean research startup, spending time with this dog Whiskey, reading gardening encyclopedias and hiking with his significant other.

Julie joined Pendo as a Technical Account Manager, quickly learned Pendo inside out, and fell in love with it. She then brought her passion for building features to delight our customers’ Pendo experience to the Product team, where she has led the delivery of features like NPS analytics and the latest guide designer.  

Julie also has a secret life as an architect (she’s got a degree in civil engineering from MIT!), brewing and iterating designs for homes in one of her favorite tools - SketchUp.  A New York native, she also regularly makes her own pizza and pasta (with a minimum of three sauces, of course).
