Hey! I'm Tim Borden

Already had the domain.

I'm available for projects of any size, whether it's
creating something new, adding features or resolving issues.
Over the last 20+ years, I have been a:
- Startup founder, as CTO, where I developed prototypes that were eventually backed by angel investors
- Member of engineering teams in venture-backed high-growth businesses
In both cases I've had to play many roles. Including having to:
- Surface and clarify requirements
- Keep projects in scope
- Tackle new technologies
- Work quickly to deliver features
I've got the rare experience that combines technical skills with business acumen. The result is project outcomes that help achieve short and long term business goals.
Here's a timeline of my experience with different tech stacks.
