About Us

SignUpGenius.com was developed by a crack-team of nuclear physicists as part of a top-secret operation commissioned by the President of the United States and operating out of a secluded government facility underneath Mount Rushmore. Ok, that's not exactly true - but to the small passionate team here in Charlotte, NC - we take our organizing mission that seriously! 

We're busy. Really busy. Probably a lot like you. The idea for SignUpGenius.com was sparked out of need to simplify and organize the various groups and communities we are involved in.
 

HOW IT ALL STARTED
 
We were having a party for our church small group one time and told people with last names starting with A-M to bring drinks and those with N-Z to bring snacks. We all showed up and were shocked to find that every snack family brought chips and salsa and every drinks family brought Diet Coke! It was the most disgusting party meal ever!

Another time I was coaching a kids soccer team where the team mom created a paper sign-up sheet to organize snacks. Seemed like it would work... until one mom had a conflict and asked a couple other people to swap around. Everyone got confused... and at least one family forgot. We ended up having numerous games where the kids sat on the sidelines, without anything, watching the other team eat their snacks!

I've got too many important things on my plate to stress about stuff like this. I kept thinking to myself... there has got to be a better way. So I set out to create one.

The Genius Team

Dan Rutledge Dan Rutledge, Lead Genius
Dan leads the team at SignUpGenius and is highly regarded by the staff... not really because of his 15+ years of web experience, but primarily because he provides tech support when the coffee machine stops working. When not coding, designing, or strategerizing - Dan likes to coach his kids, make movies, and pretend he's a comedian on Twitter. His dream is that one day SignUpGenius will also be able to organize his garage.

 
Mike Vadini Mike Vadini, Founding Genius
Mike is a serial entrepreneur, having founded SignUpGenius and so many other companies that he can hardly remember them all. In fact, sometimes when he walks into a business - he asks them if he's the owner, just to be safe. Mike serves as CEO of the global IT firm, TITAN GS and can be found travelling the world spouting out very important businessy abbreviations like EPM, SAS, CRM, ROI, and SAP to CFOs, CIOs, and CEOs. LOL! His dream is that one day SignUpGenius will organize the PGA tour and they'll let him play.

 
Angel Rutledge Angel Rutledge, Managing Genius
Angel enjoys the responsibility of keeping the unruly SignUpGenius staff in order. The mad management skills she's learned from being a mom to four kids are most helpful in her role - especially when she has to ground some of the staff members for arguing over whose turn it is to clean the bathrooms. When Angel is not scouring the internet for the best insurance plan, coordinating a staff party, or meeting with her office peeps, she enjoys working out, listening to historical audio books, and leading mission trips to Liberia. Her dream is that one day SignUpGenius will have a feature that physically smacks people upside the head if they forget their responsibility. As long as it's not her.

 
David Schaller David Schaller, Developer Genius
David is a ColdFusion ninja who is so good at programming that he sometimes walks around the office speaking in binary, just for fun. When he's not adding some new fangled feature to SignUpGenius, he enjoys motorcycle riding, playing the ukulele, and soundly defeating his six-year-old daughter in board games. His dream is that one day SignUpGenius will finally be so intuitive and easy to use that his mom won't have to call and ask him for help.

 
Jojo Serquina Jojo Serquina, Developer Genius
Jojo is a lightning fast programmer who makes coding look as easy as a cheerleader doing the splits. Thankfully, he doesn’t wear those tiny skirts to do it. When he’s not making his PC smoke, he likes to grow Asian vegetables, hang out with his wife and three kids, and create complex deli sandwiches for lunch. Usually a harmless guy, Jojo will perform a throw down headlock on anyone who suggests Auburn is better than Alabama. Roll Tide Roll!

 
Todd Bruss Todd Bruss, Design Genius
Todd enjoys mixing his techie skills with his artistic design know-how to create graphics for SignUpGenius. When asked what his favorite color is, he likes to point out that there are 18 decillion perceived colors. That’s 33 zeros, people. You might want to think about that the next time you answer “green.” Todd likes coaching his kids’ flag football teams, drinking Orange Fanta soda, and watching the 1978 Star Wars movie…in his Chewbacca costume. He dreams of one day retiring from his lucrative day job and taking his mom’s potato candy recipe to the masses.

 
Kate White Kate White, Marketing Genius
Kate has the fun job of telling every single person in the known universe about SignUpGenius (including anyone on Pluto, even if it isn't a planet). When she's not writing articles, organizing a contest, or connecting with partners... you can find her practicing yoga, baking, reading, or having a dance party with her 3-year-old - and quite possibly doing all of that at the same time. Her dream is that one day she will be told that her main focus should be to market SignUpGenius to people on resort beaches in Jamaica and that she needs to travel there... like NOW.

 
Teresa Clark Teresa Clark, Senior Support Genius
As a former teacher, Teresa loves to provide helpful answers and encouragement to the many schools that use SignUpGenius. She especially appreciates when an occasional room-mom writes into support at 3am in the morning on a weekend and says, "It's been an hour since I submitted my ticket... how come I haven't heard back?!" When she's not involved in a deep discussion on the intricacies of parent/teacher conference coordination, she enjoys cooking, baking, helping others, and being mom to four active kids. Her dream is that one day SignUpGenius will get so big that her job responsibility will be to spend the entire day pinning things on Pinterest.

 
Amy Tidwell Amy Tidwell, Senior Support Genius
Amy loves to answer questions and help our fantastic SignUpGenius users. She especially appreciates when an occasional frustrated user will type in ALL CAPS and end their sentences with multiple exclamation points!!!!! When she's not instructing people on the art and science of potluck organization, she enjoys running, watching Auburn football, and singing in the choir. Her dream is that one day Siri will be able to answer the SignUpGenius questions for her and she could just take her three girls shopping.

 
Kirsten Mayers Kirsten Mayers, Support Genius
Kirsten loves to answer questions and help our many SignUpGenius users. Since she's half-Canadian, she's our only bilingual staff member that can answer people that write in using Canadian English. It's not easy, eh? In addition to helping our users, Kirsten helps test out our newest SignUpGenius features. She has a gift with breaking things and enjoys finding bugs and laughing in the face of the developers. When she's not knee-deep in testing and support, Kirsten enjoys Longhorn football, triathlons, and being a hockey-mom. Her dream is that one day Disney will use SignUpGenius to organize their entire cruise fleet and she will have to take her family on a tropical vacation each month... just in case they have any questions.

 
Rebecca Caswell Rebecca Caswell, Support Genius
Rebecca enjoys answering questions for SignUpGenius users, especially now that her four children are all in elementary school, and she doesn’t get enough requests for help at home. She is married to a pastor, likes to work in her yard, and is passionate about orphan care. Rebecca also likes to run and gets most of her training by chasing after…you guessed it…her kids. Her burning desire in life is to see a law passed banning volunteer coordinators who send out reply to all emails, particularly for events involving…you guessed it...her kids.
