Prior to joining Nubix, Jason was VP of Ecosystem at the edge orchestration company ZEDEDA, and he previously served as CTO for Dell Technologies' Edge and IoT business.

"We're thrilled to have Jason on board and look forward to the Nubix team continuing to innovate as they modernize how constrained devices are developed, deployed, managed, and secured at scale," said Michael Berolzheimer of Bee Partners, investor, and board member.
"Jason brings a wealth of experience and relationships in the edge and IoT markets," said Josh Silber of Tuscan Management, investor and board member. "We're bullish about the company's future under his leadership."
"I'm excited to carry the torch as Nubix's CEO as we simplify development, scalability, and security for MCU-based edge and IoT solutions. Kudos to Rachel Taylor for leading the company to this point as CEO, and I wish her the best in her next adventure.", said Jason Shepherd.
In addition to Jason, Nubix has recently made other key placements, including Stephen Berard as CTO, who remains a Venture Partner with Momenta, and Brian Dunlay as lead engineer. The team has commercialized the Nubix platform to further simplify how developers build and deploy faster, smaller, and more secure applications on constrained edge devices. Nubix is actively working with customers, expanding the company's developer program, and building an ecosystem of hardware, applications, and partners.
