DigitalOcean announces the appointment of Julia Austin as its Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Taking charge of the new role, Austin is reported to lead product and engineering for one of the fastest growing cloud computing platforms and DigitalOcean’s simple, on-demand offering for over 700,000 registered customers.

“Julia’s experience leading engineering at Akamai and VMware as well as many other tech startups will be invaluable to our organization,” said Ben Uretsky, CEO and Co-Founder, DigitalOcean. “We’re excited to welcome Julia to the team to drive our product roadmap and help DigitalOcean continue to be the cloud platform of choice for developers worldwide.”

Austin is known to take-over this new role after being advisor and investor to early stage companies. She is also a faculty member of Harvard Business School’s Entrepreneurial Management Unit where she teaches Product Management.

“There have been only two other times in my career when I’ve come across an opportunity with a company so exciting that it keeps me up at night,” said Austin. “What DigitalOcean has delivered in just a few short years is a true testament to where the company is headed, and I’m thrilled to be a part of the team as we bring robust and simple cloud infrastructure to market.”

She was previously with VMware for eight years, where she managed the expansion of the engineering organization; from launching their first non-CA-based engineering site in Cambridge, MA, to leading all of VMware’s Global R&D initiatives and eventually serving as Vice President of Innovation at VMware.
