Meet Kerb Co-Founder: Matt Salmon

Taylor K.18th February 2019

Recently, we have featured our CEO and Co-Founder, Rob Brown, in our posts and blogs, but today we’re focusing on someone else. The man doing the work behind the scenes, Kerb’s Co-Founder, Matt Salmon. 

Matt has extensive experience building technology platforms, apps and websites which can scale across multiple geographic and language boundaries. He has built a team of skilled and committed workers in Australia, India and Indonesia. 

At Kerb, Matt oversees all product and technology operations. You can view Matt and the team's work by downloading the KERB Aphrodite version of the app, which saw an abundance of new style and operational features. 

We asked Matt some questions to give our community a little more insight into the man behind the Kerb platform.
