Aaron Welch

SVP, Product

Aaron Welch co-founded Packet in 2014 and directed product development and architecture for the company through 2016.  He now leads open source and technical integration efforts, where he works with a broad array of partners and technical communities.   He has been known to pound out decent code on occasion, including Packet's official Terraform, Salt, and Juju providers as well as Python and Golang libraries. 

Prior to Packet, Aaron lived in the digital agency world where his company Advomatic worked with high-profile clients in government, education and the non-profit sectors.  A veteran of the online political industry, he served as Internet Technology Director for Senator Chris Dodd’s 2008 Presidential campaign and was the Iowa-state web developer for Governor Howard Dean's Presidential campaign.  A server monkey at heart, Aaron created Advomatic’s boutique hosting division (Cadre). 

Originally from Seattle, and with a background in technical theatrical production, Aaron sits on the board of the Obie Award Winning Bushwick Starr Theatre.

In his spare time he scuba dives, eats fire and is a master of ceremonies for amateur talent shows.
