Derrick's bio (from their AmA)
Hey, I’m Derrick Reimer, a full-stack developer. I fell in love with the 37signals ethos back in 2009 and I’ve been bootstrapping ever since. I've built and sold StaticKit (acquired 2020), a toolkit of dynamic components for static sites, Codetree (acquired 2016), a way of managing development tasks across multiple repositories, and Drip (acquired 2016), a lightweight marketing automation tool that grew into a leading automation platform.
A year after writing the first line of code for SavvyCal in March of 2020, it passed $10k MRR and we've been growing healthily ever since. SavvyCal is mostly bootstrapped as we took funding from TinySeed back in 2019, before SavvyCal was a thing. We're a lean team of 3, with a marketer and support specialist in addition to myself, possibly soon expanding.
I also co-host the Art of Product podcast with Ben Orenstein (Tuple co-founder) where we've chronicled our journeys building products the last 4 years. It hasn't been all sunshine and roses, like when I spent a year building a Slack competitor and then shut it down.
