Tim is Director of Product for LendUp’s platform systems and infrastructure, which power the company’s personal loans and credit card businesses. His team builds products for the company including the system of record, money movement, data warehousing and analytics, automated financial reconciliation, core developer infrastructure and various others.
With a strong passion for building reusable and generalized shared systems, Tim has a keen eye for overlaying technical architecture decisions with business priorities, team dynamics and company culture. Balancing these is more art than science, which is tacit admission by a metrics-driven product manager that sometimes you can’t only look at data to make decisions.
In his free time Tim is a competitive tennis player, avid skier, builds track-day cars and is a huge dog lover. Fun fact: he owns two pairs of real Lederhosen from Munich, his hometown.
Tim holds a BS in Computer Science from Columbia University and an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.

Prior to Airbnb, Kristen worked in Sales Strategy and Operations and Sales Channel Development for Comcast and Cox Communications.
In true Airbnb fashion, one of Kristen’s ‘fun facts’ is that she grew up in a small southern Illinois town of 2,000 people… And no stop lights.
