Cybersecurity Ventures recently predicted that there will be 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs by 2021, and for many businesses, it will be difficult to hire the talent they need. Refactr’s solution is a platform that helps tech teams visually build, automate and secure solutions in the public cloud, helping to make the most of their existing tools.

Mac is the youngest member of the Refactr team, though he does not lack experience with startups, as his age might suggest. He was exposed to several tech startups early in his early youth and, later in high-school, worked in startups while being mentored by founders. After graduation, Mac decided to focus his passion for media production with Refactr's marketing team. A startup had felt like the most compelling and fulfilling path because of the enthusiasm and respect Mac felt for the mentors of his youth.
