Tetrate is excited to announce and welcome Brian Dussault to the team! Brian is joining as the Head of Engineering. He will lead and scale the Engineering organization owning TSB and open source initiatives that offer rich and highly performant solutions empowering multiple personas across the enterprise in their Service Mesh journey.

Brian brings over 20 years of experience building enterprise software, applications, and teams. Before joining Tetrate, he worked at VMware (via the 2019 acquisition of Pivotal Software) focused on improving the Java and WebAssembly developer experience within VMware’s Tanzu platform. During his tenure, he led the engineering team responsible for the open source project, Spring Boot. According to a 2022 Jrebel report, Spring Boot remained the leading microservice application framework used by 74% of Java developers. Brian is excited to apply his deep knowledge and experience of developer ecosystems and modern platforms at Tetrate.

“I’m delighted to join the Tetrate team at such a pivotal time of rapid growth as they make zero trust cloud-native architecture a reality for customers. The company’s open ethos can be seen in everything they do, from innovation in open source projects such as Istio, Envoy, Skywalking, func-e, and Wazero, to their ability to create a highly collaborative distributed company culture. This culture of innovation and collaboration has attracted an incredibly talented team. The culture, and a clear vision of delivering a service mesh platform that developers and operators love, uniquely positions the company for success.”
