Jessica Primavera - CEO Co-founder:
I've prioritized travel for more than a decade. I've visited 40+ countries, and I am fortunate enough to have many friends around the world. I've lived abroad a few times and I'm always captivated when learning about other cultures, so it’s hard to pick a favorite. Balancing a full-time career with travel can be tough, but I've managed to take advantage of opportunities when they arise.I’m excited to be working with a super-talented team in building Unbound, an application that speaks to my passion for travel as well as leverages the skills I’ve acquired throughout my career.
I have 12+ years of experience in Product Management, Supply Chain, and Operations. I have held technology management roles both domestically and internationally. I have significant experience in defining business and technical requirements, building customer products and analytic applications, and launching products and systems. I am acknowledged by my teams and clients for my unique ability to dissect and simplify issues involving people, technology, and business process to drive development in product, systems and operations.
Michael Dere - CTO Co-founder:
I have traveled to Canada (Vancouver), China (Guangzhou, Macau, Hong Kong), Japan (Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Hakone, Nara, Hiroshima), Spain (Barcelona, Cadiz, Lisbon,Vigo), France (Cherbourg, Paris), UK and (Dover, London). Out of all these destinations I visited, I love Japan the most. Since I was a young kid, I was (and still am) very interested in their culture and love the vast amount of cuisine selections you can choose from. I would consider myself an Otaku and Akihabara is a goldmine for me, probably one of the many reasons I go back to Japan.
Why am I excited for Unbound? Most of us are addicted to traveling and there are many problems that still exist in planning a full authentic travel experience. I am grateful and excited to have a dedicated team that shares the same passion to solve these problems in stored for Unbound and make traveling accessible for everyone!
