We’re incredibly excited to welcome JD Fitzgerald to The Summit as VP of Engineering. JD first spoke at The Summit in 2010 on our Developer Stage, and has been a regular every since.
JD led development for a little startup that became arguably Ireland’s largest and most successful consumer tech company to date, Hostelworld, which sold some years ago for $350 million.
At The Summit we’ve handled about 50,000 bookings to date. JD, however, has handled 250,000,000. He’s led software teams to deliver products across desktop and mobile devices. JD’s been heavily involved in the growth of the technology and teams in Hostelworld through the journey from a startup to a large company, and brings both technical and management expertise and experience to The Summit.
