First round draft picks all around

About Us

We could sit here and tell you that we're "rockstar developers" and the "best and the brightest" like everyone else but we're not going to. Not because we aren't, but "rockstars" play in bands and we'd rather just show you that we're smart. What we will say is that we hope you'd want to get a beer with everyone on the team, trust them to do the right thing, and maybe even introduce them to your mom.

Matt Daum | C.E.O

Hailing from Grosse Pointe, Michigan Matt attended Tufts University and graduated with a BA in computer science. After Tufts, Matt held a systems role at Boston Technologies before starting Setfive Consulting.

Away from his standing desk, Matt can usually be found smoking pork, grilling steaks, and drinking Budweiser.

"They’ve done studies, you know. 60 percent of the time, it works every time."

Ashish Datta | Partner

North Jersey born and bred, Ashish graduated from Tufts University with a BS in computer science. Following Tufts, Ashish held engineering roles at ArmchairGM and Wikia before founding Setfive Consulting.

Outside of the office, you can find Ashish in the gym, out for a run, or sipping cocktails with his pinky out.

"But our shenanigans are cheeky and fun, his shenanigans are cruel and tragic."

Jared Clapp | Engineer

Massachusetts born and raised, Jared graduated from University of New Hampshire with a BS in Business and has a certificate of Web Development from Boston University. Before joining Setfive, Jared worked for Deloitte & Touche.

Jared loves to travel and worked in Auckland, New Zealand after leaving Deloitte. When not slinging code, he can be found rock climbing, hiking and enjoying poker over new craft beers.

"I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass. And I'm all out of bubblegum."

Josh Loew | Engineer

Like 90% of America, Josh was born in the suburbs of the greater Boston area. He joined Setfive after graduating from Union college in Schenectady, NY with a double major in computer science and visual arts, making him a self-proclaimed jack of few trades and master of none.

When not wasting CPU cycles, you won't find him at the barber shop, but you might have better luck looking on a local mountain bike trail.

"Sand is overrated. It's just tiny, little rocks."

Randy Jacobs | DevOps

After growing up in upstate NY, Randy graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) with a BS in mechanical engineering. Following WPI, Randy served as a ski instructor in Colorado before returning to Boston to join an early stage startup. Immediately following, Randy joined Setfive Consulting in a hybrid engineering and system role.

When not keeping servers running, Randy enjoys hiking, skiing, and the occasional stout.

"Remember, boys, no points for second place."

Sarah Lee | Frontend Developer

A Boston native, Sarah graduated from Boston University with a BA in communications. While at BU, Sarah worked as a freelance web designer and honed her front end development skills. Following graduation, she spent several months traveling through South East Asia before returning home to Boston. After her trip, Sarah joined Setfive Consulting as a hybrid front end designer and developer.

When not herding pixels, you can find Sarah exploring Boston's newest restaurants, enjoying brunch cocktails, or hitting a spin class.

"'PC Load Letter'? What the f**k does that mean?"
