Meet the GOEFER Team
It was early fall in 2015 when he stepped away from a successful career as a Building Sustainability Consultant to work full time on taking this vision to market. He brings over 20 years of construction and facility management experience, with more than half of that focused on sustainability. His passion for sustainability began as potential career ending risk when he set a goal to build the first LEED Certified for the Arizona National Guard years before it was required. He speaks building and energy reductions, and wants to translate that expertise to GOEFER customers and the GOEFER Team.
He comes from a very successful career as a Principal Software Architect, Open Source Developer & Technical Speaker with over 16 years of experience working in startups in a wide array of industries and on large open source projects, including but not limited to WebKit (Apple Safari), Chromium (Google Chrome), and Qt. His experience in growing dispersed teams, breaking ground on greenfield products, and designing massively scalable architectures has prepared him to meet the global growth challenge of GOEFER.
Gabriel has always felt he was different from his distant dirt-burrowing gopher cousins. Maybe it was that he liked walking on two legs, always wore his favorite red shirt, or looked like a cartoon; regardless, he felt out of place. Gabriel isn’t afraid to ask a question or lend a paw. He has an odd fascination with plugs and turning things on and off. It wasn’t until he met Michael and Jarred that his life began to make sense. Gabriel’s official role at GOEFER is unknown, but the guys say they have lots of ideas for him...
