Charlie has been working on the beginnings of FireStop since high school, and is behind the main ideas and structures that form FireStop. His hobbies include leaving his team hanging in the middle of a development session to respond to a fire call, maintaining a love/hate relationship with Core Data, and posing for firefighter calendars.
Position: COO, Data Engineer and Scientist
From: Palo Alto, CA
Eddie is a founding partner of FireStop and has been heavily involved in our growth since we began pitching our ideas in late 2012. While keeping a close eye on all day-to-day operations, Eddie is constantly building our cloud servers, as well as managing and analyzing the data that we use to deliver accurate and timely information to our first responders. Eddie can proudly bench press his teammates, recite entire episodes of Suits from memory and reorganize tasks on Asana with his eyes closed.
Position: CTO, Front-end engineer
From: Brooklyn, NY
Darshan is our design wizard on our web and mobile ends. He is responsible for the beauty and elegance present in our current iPad application, as well as the website you're navigating right now. His talents include working on a nocturnal schedule, growing a full beard from scratch in few hours, and being deathly afraid of Git merge conflicts.
As a comprehensive solution, FireStop involves everyone at stake, from property owners and insurance companies to fire inspectors and fire scene coordinators.
Our goal is to save 90 seconds of firefighting operations — a number reached after extensive research and testing.
We are in the process of piloting our app with several departments (see below) to optimize and analyze our software. If you'd like to join these select few, please contact us!
