Vice President, Software Development
When Campus Labs wanted to take the first big leap to improve their technology, they made the right choice by bringing in Sean Townsend. Joining in 2005 when the company was still in its start-up phase, Sean was instrumental in building and evolving the integration of technologies and infrastructure to both match the company’s goals and to stay on the cutting edge of the ed-tech space. Sean currently manages all aspects of UX design, software development, deployment, hosting, and monitoring for all the Campus Labs products, continuously identifying areas of improvement not just for the technology but the implementation as well. Sean also plays a substantial role within the leadership team to develop company strategies and ensure the various team missions are aligned. From when he was first hired to the present day, Sean takes great care and consideration with his mentorship strategies of the development teams, valuing empowerment, sharing knowledge and allowing them the freedom to make positive choices that benefit themselves, the company, and the culture. In addition, Sean himself remains a vigilant student by continually exploring and honing the practical application of evolving development methodologies.
Sean has over 20 years of solution design and development experience, making him a key player in the technology architecture of Campus Labs. In previous roles, he contributed to the success of multiple small companies and start-ups which resulted in large-scale acquisitions.
