Paul Hopton is relayr’s Chief Engineer. As an artist, coder, programmer, developer, and engineer, Paul’s professional title has evolved over the last 18 years. Working on platforms from floppy-disk to large scale cloud distributions, he has developed a keen ability to think in scales from tiny to humongous and everything in between. Switching focus between front-end and back-end development has given Paul deep understanding of the whole stack, which lends him the unique perspective he leverages daily at relayr.
