Jeff Currier takes the helm as Galileo’s top technology executive
“Jeff brings to Galileo incredible credentials working on the cutting edge at companies known for their high degree of technological sophistication,” said Galileo CEO Clay Wilkes. “His deep understanding of applying technology to create at-scale solutions that meet or exceed customer asks is unparalleled, and his management and leadership skills are finely honed. He’s a fabulous addition to our already strong tech and management teams and will be the guiding force in the ongoing effort to take Galileo’s payment processing platform to the next level of speed, scalability and reliability.”
Prior to joining Galileo, Jeff led the technical development of the successful SoFi Money product, now powered on the Galileo platform. Earlier in his career, he led engineering teams at Amazon Web Services, Twitter and Microsoft. While at Microsoft, Jeff was a founding member of the Azure SQL database team and led the initial launch of the service along with the rest of the Azure platform.
“Because of my involvement in creating SoFi Money, I knew firsthand that Galileo’s powerful and flexible APIs were unmatched in the payments industry,” Currier said. “Now, being in a position to guide the ongoing evolution of those APIs—along with Galileo’s other robust technology assets—it’s like being a kid in a remarkably well provisioned candy store.
“An added plus is working with Clay, the incumbent Galileo technology team and our amazing partners and clients,” he continued, “who see the vision and work every day to improve the world of payments. It’s great to be part of this group.”
