We're Speedscale

We built our company and product on the premise that successful cloud-native
application delivery can only happen in predictable software-defined environments.

Ken Ahrens

Much of Ken’s career has been focused on helping companies develop and manage complex web applications. He previously ran North America teams for New Relic and CA/Broadcom. Previous startups included Pentaho (acquired by Hitachi), ITKO (acquired by CA/Broadcom) and ILC (acquired by General Dynamics). His first foray into programming started with a brand new language called Java at Georgia Tech and has grown into a lifetime interest.


Matt LeRay

Matthew LeRay has invested the past 20 years improving the performance of applications across multiple generations of technology. Previously, he was head of product at Observe, SVP at CA Technologies (acquired by Broadcom) and engineering leader at ILC (acquired by General Dynamics). He is an alumnus of Georgia Tech in both Computer Engineering and Business. His first love is debugging golang code but he occasionally takes a break to craft hand carved guitars.


Nate Lee

Nate has served a variety of roles within the software industry. Most recently, he was in enterprise sales for the digital transformation consultancy Contino (acquired by Cognizant). Prior to Contino, he served as Product Manager at CA Technologies, by way of iTKO where he was a Presales Engineer for 6 years. Before iTKO, he spent time as a support leader at IBM Internet Security Systems, and engineer at ILC (acquired by General Dynamics). He graduated Georgia Tech with an MBA in Technology, and BS in Computer Science.  You’ll most likely find him outdoors on 2 wheels when he’s not innovating with his Speedscale buddies.
