Our portfolio company Reonomy continues to impress. The company announced this week that they've hired Chris Fischer from Shutterstock. Chris will head the company's engineering efforts and help the company scale.
Real estate research and data startup Reonomy, which raised $13 million in a Series B round in January, has now wooed one of Shutterstock’s top technology executives to head up its engineering efforts, The Real Deal has learned. Chris Fischer, who was vice president of technology operations at the image-sharing giant, will oversee design of Reonomy’s products and help the two-year-old startup scale. “Being able to build an early-stage company, with an exciting vision in a pretty cool space — that’s not a job to me,” Fischer said in an interview Wednesday, referring to his decision to leave a behemoth with a market cap of $2.54 billion for a startup.
