Nolan SmithDirector of Engineering
The son of a successful software entrepreneur from Durham, NC, Nolan isn’t kidding when he says he grew up around technology.

Actually, he was drawn to the DOOM multiplayer death matches they played after work…but that is beside the point.

Prior to joining Tego Data, Nolan held a variety of technical positions supporting and eventually assuming leadership roles within global organizations in the manufacturing and software verticals.
