John Ciecholewski

Senior Product Manager

John’s first memory related to computing involves collecting Compuserve CDs to get free Internet access. John pursued something different in his education, however, and eventually went on to get his Masters in Engineering and MBA from Cornell University. Now, he joins Devbridge as Product Manager in our Chicago office.

For inspiration, John can often rely on the Product Hunt website. But when he wants a less tech-centric way to find inspiration, he knows he can always turn to nature, especially backcountry camping and snowboarding. When it comes to literature and entertainment, John’s favorite book is Soccernomics and his favorite movie is Elf. If it’s food you’re talking about, look no further than Portillo’s Italian Beef to find John’s favorite.
