We’re excited to welcome John Williams to the operations team at 37signals this week. John will be joining Joshua and me to make sure our servers and infrastructure are as reliable as possible. John impressed us with a job application similar to the one that Craig submitted and went the extra mile by driving 5 hours to Chicago to meet with us face to face for a couple of hours.

John has past experience doing Rails development and as a systems engineer at Contegix. He’s also a pretty good cyclist, and was part of the National Collegiate Cycling Association Track Championship Team in 2003 and 2006 while at Marian College.

He’s a great addition and we’re thrilled to have him join the team. Welcome, John!
