Top-Notch Staff


Chris Barajas

Technical Support

Chris joined Rogue Amoeba in 2010 to handle technical support. Chris will assist you and other customers with questions about our software. Email support to get a fast, helpful reply from him.

Chris lives in Rochester, NY and in his free time he enjoys walks and bike rides with his wife and their golden retriever. Don't worry, the dog has his own trailer, so he doesn't have to pedal.

Lee Falin

Windows & iOS Software Engineer

Lee joined Rogue Amoeba at the end of 2008, to assist you and other customers with questions about our software. In 2010, Lee moved to the role of Windows software engineer, leading development of Airfoil for Windows.

Lee is a former PhD student who writes software to help answer questions about the genetics of microorganisms. Naturally, the perfect job for him is working for a software company named after a microorganism.

Grant Farr

Mac Software Engineer

After 1.5 decades of programming in the hinterlands, Grant was thrilled to join Rogue Amoeba, so he could work on top-notch audio software for you. Yes, you!

Grant is Australian, which means all of his code tends to run upside down. Despite his nickname of "surly", he's actually quite likable and will have a beer with anyone at least once.

Jeff Johnson

Mac Software Engineer

Jeff joined us at Rogue Amoeba in June 2008, and has been tearing up the codebase since then. As our longest-tenured employee, he's left an indelible mark on nearly our entire product line.

Jeff is a former philosophy teacher who decided to switch to programming because philosophical problems never leave beta. He is generally well-mannered, but you don't want to meet him on the tennis court.

Neale Van Fleet

Designer

Neale joined us at Rogue Amoeba in 2015 to help with all of our design needs. In short order, you'll see more and more of his stellar work on our site and in our apps.

Neale lives in snowy Montreal with his wife and son. When not drawing rectangles and other shapes on a screen, he reads, takes photos, and dabbles with physical design and art projects. Currently, his greatest claim to fame is that he once designed and built a robot that appeared on a robot combat show, back when that was a thing.

Ed Wynne

Mac Software Engineer

Ed joined Rogue Amoeba in 2011, after years of providing contract work on some very important code. He's one of the brains behind our backend audio capture technology, and has now also led development of Loopback.

Ed lives in the semi-wilds of Michigan, near Ann Arbor. He mitigates the isolation of remote work with a strict regimen of pessimistic optimism and crotchety old man behavior. No doubt time spent with his wife, two kids, and two dogs also helps.

Founders


Paul Kafasis

CEO/Lackey

Paul serves as the public face of Rogue Amoeba and handles product management for all of Rogue Amoeba's applications, as well as tackling the innumerable tasks no one else wants.

When not working, Paul attempts to give the world a laugh on his site and Twitter.

Quentin Carnicelli

CTO/TOOLSMITH

Quentin currently oversees the entire engineering team, as well as handling all the backend code that's necessary to keep Rogue Amoeba running.

Quentin enjoys a life in the bucolic countryside, puttering with his CNC plasma cutter, 200A arc welder, and mini-excavator.

Alex Lagutin

SENIOR PROGRAMMER/HEAD OF R & D

Alex is the mind behind the original Audio Hijack concept, as well as the backends of many of Rogue Amoeba's applications.

Alex first took up programming in the early ’90s while in the Soviet army, but just like his motherland, he has since embraced capitalism.
