Introducing Zaid Sulaiman: Quill’s new VP Engineering
We’re delighted to announce that technology specialist Zaid Sulaiman, formerly of Constant Commerce, has joined Quill as VP Engineering.
Prior to taking on the VP Engineering mantle at Quill, Zaid held the same position at Constant Commerce, a technology start-up specialising in shoppable content solutions for media owners, publishers and brands.
With over 13 years’ industry experience, Zaid started his career as a developer at Rolfe & Nolan, before progressing to senior developer and technical lead roles at OpenBet, the UK market leader in customised software solutions for operators running high-transaction betting and online gaming websites.
In his most recent tenure at Constant Commerce, Zaid was responsible for the successful delivery of a large, complex platform for distributed ecommerce.
He grew the development team from 10 heads to 30, and identified pain points to resolve in the platform and process, to add immediate stability and ease of development for the existing platform, while freeing up developers to work on new products and features.
Zaid brings this wealth of experience with him to Quill, where he will be focusing on growing the in-house technology team and taking the Quill Cloud – our proprietary software for scalable multi-language content production – to the next level, developing features that further streamline high-volume production and improve content performance reporting.
Commenting on his motivation for joining Quill, Zaid said:
“I was primarily impressed by Quill’s unique proposition and model – solving the huge operational challenges that surround ecommerce content production, using technology to leverage a global talent network.”
“As well as being impressed by the calibre of the people I met at Quill, I was also attracted by the opportunity to build tools that allow the company to scale up in a sustainable way – and the challenge this represents. I am thrilled to be leading the technology team as we enter this exciting phase of growth.”
