Few roles at Basecamp are as critical as the Director of Operations. This person is responsible for keeping the lights on and the sites fast while managing seven people split across two teams. All of this while building strategic plans, managing project work and taking the occasional on-call shift. We set an incredibly high bar in our job posting for this position and still received 441 undaunted applicants.
From this group of very qualified people, Basecamp is proud to announce that Troy Toman has joined the team as our new Director of Operations. Troy has a long history in the tech industry with stints at IBM, Sun and Rackspace.

Welcome, Troy! We’re lucky to have you.
