There he was responsible for the overall product vision, strategy, and roadmap, and led the product and engineering teams to deliver an NLP platform that enabled healthcare enterprises to quickly build and deploy custom machine learning models and streamline labor intensive workflows.

There, Evan worked at the intersection of consumer health, employer-based benefits, and enterprise SaaS at a time when the category was still being created.
