With over a decade of experience building “Software as a Service” applications for the nonprofit sector, Rob Signorelli now serves as Bloomerang’s Co-Founder and CTO, leading the team responsible for conceiving, designing, and developing the Bloomerang software.
Rob began his work in the nonprofit technology sector as an intern at eTapestry while earning his B.S. in Computer Science at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. He stayed on as a remote member of the team while studying distributed computing and earning his Master’s degree in Computer
Science at Indiana University. At the completion of his Master’s, Rob joined the eTapestry team full time in Indianapolis.
During his ten years at eTapestry and Blackbaud, Rob earned the Employee of the Year honor and progressed into a leadership role on the Development team, becoming a mentor to his fellow developers and eventually leading the team as the youngest Software Architect in Blackbaud’s history.
In 2010, Rob left eTapestry to take on a new challenge as the Manager of Software
Development and Lead Architect at Fifth Gear, hired on specifically to design their new “Overdrive” order fulfillment platform. While he enthusiastically rose to the challenge of creating an entirely new system, over time he found that he missed the unique opportunities and challenges that come from working with nonprofit organizations. It was time to get back to his roots, and so Rob decided to bring his wealth of nonprofit technology and product development knowledge to the Bloomerang team.
