Hi, I am Jimmy McDermott.

I’m an entrepreneur, developer, and leader. Currently, I work at Transeo as the CTO and focus specifically on scaling our technical team and infrastructure to millions of students. In a previous life, I ran 162 where we helped breathe new life into technology projects desperate for innovation. I was honored on the 2022 Forbes 30 Under 30 list and in high school I was honored as a "Fifty For The Future" Chicago Innovator and included in the 2017 Daily Herald Leadership Team.

I believe that people come before profits because it leads to more effective leadership, collaboration, and innovation. I strive to embody these principles in all of my projects and work hard to show my teams why that way of thinking is critical to future success. I don’t think that you have to work yourself into the ground to be successful - I push for balance in my companies and my life.

If these ideas make sense to you, reach out and connect. You can find me on Twitter, LinkedIn, or via email.
