Hi everyone, I’m Mike Gruen. I recently joined Cybrary (https://www.cybrary.it), a DC-based cybersecurity startup, as VP of Engineering (and “interim HR generalist”). I started my career in 1996 as a C++/Java developer. Over the years, I pretty much stuck with Java, but have worked with a wide assortment of languages and technologies having done stints as an Oracle DBA, Mainframe Team Manager, Pre- and Post-Sales Engineer, and VP of Product to name a few. I have enjoyed working for small to mid sized professional services, product development, and government contracting companies that have experienced the full spectrum of outcomes including IPO, acquisition, and, unfortunately, closing down. Early in my career, I was privileged with a life long mentor and am excited to be apart of this community.

Hey, I'm available every Monday at 9:00 PM (GMT)
