Ruben Izmailyan grew up in Armenia originally, then moved to Russia when he was 12. When he was 14, he and his family came to the US, eventually attending school at Brown in Rhode Island. He’s an avid BBQer, which fits perfectly now that he is living in Texas with his young family. However, he let me know that he even was into this style of cooking when he was living in Brooklyn – against the wishes of his landlord at the time.
In a previous role, Ruben was made aware that although financial institutions and brokers had access to useful data, normal consumers did not. Starting out with a budgeting app, he and his team ended up pivoting to creating the tooling and infrastructure needed to interact with financial data sets. And this abstraction started to gain traction.
This is the creation story of Quiltt.
