Benjamin Curtis
Co-founder, Honeybadger Industries

Website | @stympy

Ben has been developing web apps and building startups since ’99, and fell in love with Ruby and Rails in 2005. Before co-founding Honeybadger, he launched a couple of his own startups: Catch the Best, to help companies manage the hiring process, and RailsKits, to help Rails developers get a jump start on their projects.

Ben’s role at Honeybadger ranges from bare-metal to front-end… he keeps the server lights blinking happily, builds a lot of the back-end Rails code, and dips his toes into the front-end code from time to time.

When he’s not working, Ben likes to hang out with his wife and kids, ride his road bike, and of course hack on open source projects.
