Chief Strategy Officer
Roger Cosseboom is Chief Strategy Officer with Backbone. He is responsible for the company and product strategy for re-imagining manufacturing and productivity software for cannabis and hemp. Prior to joining Backbone, Roger founded a financial software startup in 2015 that was incubated in the first Y Combinator Fellowship. Roger has also led Engineering Teams for various tech companies.
Colleagues describe Roger as an intelligent and efficient problem solver. Roger particularly enjoys working with teams to solve complex problems that help them reach their goals. This left brain / right brain approach is woven into the Backbone software. Cannabis companies are able to access accurate real-time data that helps them easily communicate with farmers, distributors, and the regulatory community. When not at work, you can find Roger contemplating a 6-month hike of the Pacific Crest Trail.
