How We Started

Our CEO, Jason Furtado, was a product manager at Endeca when it was sold to Oracle for a reported 1.075 billion dollars. Steve Papa, the founder and CEO of Endeca, experienced the growing pains that come from trying to manage legal complexity for a successful startup first hand. Steve had seen many times during Endeca’s growth where a mistake that didn’t seem worth fixing at the time caught up with the company at the most important moment leading to unnecessary risk and a massive waste of time and money. Jason and Steve both thought there had to be a better way for startups to reduce the friction and always be ready to take advantage of opportunities like a fundraise or exit. Shoobx was built to make the easiest way to get things done the right way.

Jason and Stephan, our CTO, were the first Shoobx employees and they worked out of Boston coffee shops and one particularly tasty Korean restaurant. The team expanded to include a team of European developers that Stephan had worked with in the open-source python community. Today we have a traditional office in the heart of Boston next to Fenway Park and are proud to have employees from a variety of backgrounds and a number of countries. We’ve certainly grown in size and funding, but we’re still focused on the all-important goal of empowering awesome companies and all their stakeholders “to make the world a better place”.
