A passionate entrepreneur, Derwyn Harris is currently a co-founder and Product Manager at Jama Software. Through his time at Jama, Derwyn has worked with hundreds of companies ranging from software, retail, semiconductor, medical devices, government and aerospace.

Before finding his path in technology, Derwyn spent time organizing events for Outside Magazine, was an Operations Manager for a cable company office, sold advertising for a local paper, and co-founded a local indoor cycling center.
Derwyn has dabbled in classical music his whole life having grown up with a father who is the ultimate fan and introduced him to many famous pieces – as well as a few obscure ones. Later Derwyn would study pieces such as Mozart’s Don Giovanni, and Bach’s St Matthew Passion as part of the St John’s college liberal arts program. Derwyn even recently started studying the piano but is doing it purely for the joy it brings, and has no aspirations of stardom.
