Ward Vuillemot is currently the CTO at RealSelf where he oversees product, design, engineering, data science and analytics, IT, and customer support. As a person with high-functioning autism, he is more surprised than anyone else that he’s found his vocational calling leading others remotely. He has successfully worked 100% remotely from his home in central Washington for the past 6 years. Previous employment includes Boeing, Amazon, Xbox and other companies in a variety of roles spanning aerospace engineering to technical Japanese interpreter to software engineering to product management to technology leader. Ward currently lives in Central Washington with his partner and their 2 great danes. He’s also working on a book aimed toward technology leaders on how to build high-functioning organizations by creating psychologically safe environments built upon EQ, kindness, and clear communications. He’s looking forward to a post-COVID world where we can once again attend NorwesCon and exhibit his artwork.
