Hi, I’m Aabhas and I’m the CTO here at Found. Thanks for your interest. Our team is responsible for taking products from ideation to being used by tens of thousands of users every week. We’re a small but experienced team that has worked on complex problems such as money movement and taxes at Square, on-demand delivery at Uber, and building large-scale support solutions at Microsoft.

  • Analyze large amounts of device, user, and behavioral data to identify clusters of bad users.
