Eric heads up product development and engineering at WattTime and brings a passion for energy efficiency, sustainable economies, and environmental stewardship. His background spans three decades of technical, business, product and marketing experience at MySQL AB, Sun Microsystems, Cobalt Networks, non-profits and academic institutions. Most recently Eric started and managed a farm dedicated to using technology to demonstrate the economic viability of permaculture goals in mid-scale diversified food production. Eric’s passion for the environment is also driven by his love for wild places — he is an avid backpacker and rock climber and heads to the mountains every chance he gets.
