In the future, all interfaces will adapt to reflect a user's context and intent. We are building the platform to enable this, beginning with user onboarding.
Come say hi if you're in San Francisco, Portland, or Seattle.
I was born in India, lived in Saudi Arabia, grew up in England and worked in Europe before moving to San Francisco, and so far I love it (update: now in Oakland!)
I read Engineering at Cambridge and worked in non-profits, consulting and startups before co-founding Chameleon - because I was frustrated at the energy that both companies and users were wasting when trying to explain / learn a product. I spend most of my time thinking about user onboarding, but at other times I enjoy meditating, football ("soccer") and philosophy.

I live and breathe technology but frequently escape to areas of the world that have no cell coverage.
I studied computer science at UC Berkeley, worked in enterprise SaaS (Oracle after being acquired), and founded a consumer mobile app before starting Chameleon - to remove pressure from engineering teams and provide product people greater control over UX. I threw javelin on the track and field team at Cal, am a skilled woodworker, an avid backpacker and have a passionate interest in cooking amazing food.

I’ve been taking things apart since I was 6 years old and it’s taught me that knowing how something works is only worthwhile if you can share it.
That’s why I joined Chameleon - to help people explain their awesome new creations. I was born and raised in Portland Oregon, received a BA from Linfield College, and worked for companies like Intel and Nike before joining Chameleon. I backpack, brew beer, and try to find new small skills to pick up (right now it’s card shuffling).
Hit me up @HiAaronCody to tell me what the best coworking coffee shop in Portland is, and why it's World Cup on 18th and Glisan.
Growing up in the rural Northwest I found myself either playing drums in our barn or wandering around in the woods. I dropped out of college to tour the country in a band called Aqueduct where I eventually met my wife and settled in Seattle.
I started building websites in the late 1990's over a 20kbit/s dial-up connection and eventually recieved my Computer Science degree from Seattle University. I've been shipping product at different marketing technology startups ever since.
Hiding technical complexity underneath simple interfaces and experiences is my goal here at Chameleon. If you are in the Seattle area hit me up for anything technology or startup related - I'd love to connect!
I take note of how naturally we design delight into our lives. It could be because I enjoy the scrappy nature of a life hack, but I actually think I just really appreciate the variety of great ways to solve a problem.
Too often, the greatest ideas and products go underappreciated because their value isn’t understood. I joined Chameleon to enable teams to more easily share that value. Previously, I’ve worked at startups, non-profits, and in hardgoods, in both visual, and product design.
If I’m not working from the cafes of SF that let me use their outlets, it’s likely I’m hiking up a long dirt trail, getting lost in the woods or another country (it’s ok, I bring snacks), and photographing the entire adventure.
We are building an amazing team, and if you have enthusiasm, hustle, hunger, and smarts, we need you!
