We’re excited to welcome Tim Chalk to the Kard family as our new VP of Engineering. Tim’s passion for empowering others and creating an ethos of team collaboration builds a foundation for the growth of our engineering team in 2021.
Tim brings over 15 years of experience in FinTech leadership positions at both major corporations and startups. He has spent the last decade building mobile and B2B payment solutions for the likes of Vanco, NCR, Qualcomm, and more. Tim joined his first startup back in 2006, bringing world-first mobile banking solutions to marketing on J2ME and BREW flip-phones and blackberries before smartphones even existed.
“After spending time in companies large and small, I’ve really found my passion working for startups. There are great lessons to be learned from the big companies, but it’s hard for them to match the level of innovation and excitement that comes from bringing something brand new to market. Kard is in the perfect position to bring about an evolution in the card-linked offer space and is building a fantastic team and culture to do it - who wouldn’t want to join?!”
Tim is all about the importance of family. Outside of work, he loves to spend time with his fiancée and his two loving children. You can find them building lego, playing video games, or hiking nature trails along the Chattahoochee River.
Music is also a big part of Tim’s life; he participated in the opening and closing ceremonies of the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta and performed in Symphony Hall for the International Orchestra Conference. He also marched with the Yellow Jackets and continues to play in local community bands.
