Jeff Whitlock




Most recently Jeff built PingPong, a video messaging app for remote teams. Acquired by Grain.

Earlier in his career he started at McKinsey & Co., He was fortunate to land a product management opportunity at Vivint SmartHome. While working with a great team, they were able to build the best-rated smart home app at the time (4.5 stars over 2400+ reviews).

After leaving Vivint, he pursued his passion for Africa by joining a motorcycle taxi, ride-sharing startup in Uganda called SafeBoda. At SafeBoda, he wore many hats: product manager, UX designer, and call support director. Perhaps the most exciting and difficult challenge while at SafeBoda was building a world-class tech team with team members from 5 countries (Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Ghana, and the US).

At SafeBoda, they successfully built and launched the product, achieving 10K+ rides within the first 4 months. Jeff, unfortunately, had to leave SafeBoda prematurely for personal reasons, but the company is still going strong and is now doing >8,000 rides per day.
