Scott Jarr is a technology visionary who brings more than 20 years of experience building, launching, and growing groundbreaking high technology companies. His first job was writing communications software. In that position, he wrote a product called u/VOLTDS. Sounds a little familiar, right? Over two decades later, he is the co-founder of VoltDB. (And he still has the data sheet for that first product…)
Prior to VoltDB, Scott was a key member of the executive team at SaaS pioneer LiveVault, where he was instrumental in growing the company’s subscription business to thousands of corporate customers worldwide. That growth led directly to LiveVault’s successful acquisition by Iron Mountain (IRM). Scott has an undergraduate degree in mathematical programming from the University of Tampa and an MBA from the University of South Florida.
As part of his commitment to fostering the entrepreneurial spirit in others, Scott serves as a board member and advisor helping other early-stage companies build their businesses in the search, mobile, security, storage and virtualization markets. He recently moved to the Bay Area and says it’s like “coming home” for an entrepreneur like him. The supportive environment makes building businesses “far easier and more fun.” He notes that the weather and the wine aren’t bad, either.
Scott’s divides his time between enjoying the great outdoors – hiking, kayaking, backpacking, beachgoing, running and more – with his wife and three kids, and growing VoltDB, his “fourth child.”
