We’re excited to announce that Jeff Currier has joined Chime as Chief Technology Officer, bringing broad and deep fintech experience to lead our technology organization. Jeff comes to Chime with deep engineering knowledge and extensive experience in the fintech industry, making him well-poised to accelerate Chime’s technology organization.

 

In his role as CTO, Jeff will lead Chime’s engineering organization, improving their ability to innovate, deploy products, and increase shipping velocity. His primary focus will be on bringing value to Chime’s members by partnering with our Chief Product Officer to ship products that enrich their lives. He will also work to set Chime’s engineers up for success, enabling them to effectively deliver Chime’s products to members. Jeff will report to Chime Co-founder Ryan King and sit on the Executive Committee.

 

“Jeff brings great knowledge, perspective, and expertise from his experience leading engineering teams at some of the world’s most innovative tech companies, and we are thrilled to have him at the helm of our engineering organization as we enter the next chapter of Chime’s technical growth and maturity.” – Ryan King, Co-founder of Chime

 

Prior to joining Chime, Jeff held the position of CTO at Galileo Financial Technologies, a SoFi company, leading the company’s technical transformation to the cloud. Prior to SoFi’s acquisition of Galileo, he was VP of Engineering at SoFi, where he led the development of the SoFi Money consumer product. Before his tenure at SoFi, Jeff led engineering teams at Amazon Web Services (DynamoDB), Twitter, and Microsoft. At Microsoft, he 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.

 

“In any career decision, I look for a combination of interesting problems to solve and good, passionate people to do so with—and I found both at Chime. Chime’s mission of helping members hits home, particularly as growing up in Flint, Michigan, I understand the challenges many Chime members face. Joining Chime to solve such challenges with innovative tech is both a professional and personal decision for me, and I’m excited to work alongside the passionate and caring team at Chime as we expand our product lines to better support our members—and ensure Chime’s growth.” – Jeff Currier, CTO of Chime
