Debo is a 3x startup founder and former staff engineer at Uber, where he oversaw critical security projects across infrastructure and product development. The son of entrepreneurial parents, he developed at a young age the tenacity, reliability, and diligence that would help him solve increasingly difficult challenges throughout his career.At every turn, Debo was confronted with two incompatible truths: 1) engineers lose a lot of precious time to inefficient tools and maintenance, and 2) organizations expect engineers to ship quickly. DevZero was created to reconcile this gap. Debo is passionate about providing the best engineering experience possible while increasing the value of their work for their organizations.
