What does it mean to tandemize?

Tandem founders Alec Reynolds and Mike Pirog share a belief that software should be better: more profitable for businesses, easier for users to access, and more fun for developers to make. Prior to Tandem, Alec and Mike worked for 5 years as co-founders of a digital agency and saw the immense gains made possible by optimizing software development tooling and practices.

At Tandem, they use this experience to help organizations find their ideal toolset and discover better project management methodologies. From planning and staffing all the way to implementing projects, Tandem will show you better ways to create software projects while having fun doing it.

Alec Reynolds

CEO & Senior Developer

Alec is a digital solutions consultant who helps organization get more value from their software projects. His digital agency background gave Alec the opportunity to experience a variety of strategies for managing web application projects and made him an ardent student of lean business development, agile project management, and continuous delivery methodologies.

When he's not collecting new tools and tricks of the trade, you can find him either running or hiking on the trails around the San Francisco East Bay, observing local birdlife, and making the odd batch of sauerkraut.

Mike Pirog

Mike is an architect, developer, devops expert and tech DOES ALL THE THINGS with over a decade of experience finding better ways to make and deliver web applications.

Away from the monitor, Mike is often found deep in conversation arguing the merits of Gilded Age grooming practices and fleshing out his concept for a Russian-language Weezer coverband.

Geoff St. Pierre
