Co-Founder & Chief Technology Officer
Vic Patil is co-founder and CTO of Backbone responsible for re-imagining manufacturing and productivity software for cannabis and hemp. Prior to co-founding Backbone in 2017, Vic led engineering at Heighten, a sales-focused startup which was acquired by LinkedIn.
Colleagues describe Vic as having an off-the-charts IQ, but it is his EQ that makes him an exceptional leader. Vic is passionate about creating an environment where people get the most out of what they are doing and exhibit their own personal career growth. This passion translates directly into the customer experience one receives with Backbone software – user-friendly, feels like they are part of the development process, and open to feedback.
Vic holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Computer Science from UC Berkeley.
