adam-wu-headshotSan Mateo, CA – Stormpath, the complete Identity API for software teams, today announced that Adam Wu has joined the company as Vice President of Engineering. Wu, a Silicon Valley veteran, brings nearly two decades of engineering leadership experience to the San Mateo-based company.

Wu joins Stormpath from his most recent position as Vice President of Cloud Engineering at Centrify, the leading provider of unified identity infrastructure for IT teams. While at Centrify, Wu built and managed a high-scale engineering and operations team, and drove Centrify’s expansion from legacy software into cloud and mobile services, a cornerstone for the company’s growth.

“Adam’s demonstrated leadership in building high-growth engineering teams and scaling stable cloud infrastructure will be invaluable to Stormpath as we continue to innovate in the identity space,” said Alex Salazar, Stormpath CEO and co-founder.

Wu’s senior management experience at startups and large companies includes leadership roles at Microsoft, Intel, and Oracle, and a focus on delivering scalable, secure new products to market:

“A developer building a new web application would never write their own database; you don’t want to reinvent the wheel. It’s the same principle with the user store and common user functions like authentication and authorization — it doesn’t make sense to build them from scratch.  Stormpath’s Identity API shares my vision for delivering convenience developers will love, so they can focus on building great applications,” said Wu. “Stormpath serves a large market and a passionate user base.  I look forward to continue building an awesome developer experience and to help grow Stormpath together with an amazing team.”
