Christopher Clark
Director of Information Technology, SparkFun Electronics Inc.


I began as the sole IT professional at SparkFun Electronics when it was very small and now manage a diversified staff of fourtteen. During the past several years my responsibilities have grown from initially developing our internal ERP system to overseeing the rapid scaling of our growing business in all aspects information technology.

My degree is in mathematics and I’ve spent time as an image processor for the Cassini mission to Saturn as well as phlebotomist and camp counselor. When not hard at work I’m somewhere in the Colorado mountains, snow or shine, partaking in nature’s beauty.
