The addition of Ampuero to the Pasito executive team is momentous. Pasito recently closed its pre-seed funding and signed pilots with beta companies. Through its pilots, Pasito increased employee benefit adoption, maximized employer payroll tax savings, supported compliance requirements, and reduced administrative strain on Human Resource teams – all while helping individual company employees save over $1,800, on average.
As CTO, Ampuero will lead product and technology development for the company to scale the early success of its pilots and expand Pasito's reach across partners and business sectors. With Ampuero's experience with product engineering and security, Pasito's software will expand to offer powerful data insights and security-centric products to stakeholders.
"I'm ecstatic to welcome Ignacio to Pasito's leadership team. Ignacio encompasses a rare combination of leadership, development, analytic, and security expertise. His experience and personality are a perfect match for Pasito and the culture we're building as a team," said Pauline Roteta, CEO. "I am excited to build a world-class product and scale the business together"
As for Ampuero, the move to join Pasito's executive team as CTO is one which he anticipates greatly. "I was immediately impressed with the team, the mission, and the product as well as the excitement and passion of all involved," Ampuero said. "I'm thrilled for the opportunity to use my experience to bring the Pasito application to life and to help shape the future of the company."
Ampuero's engineering and security expertise spans over seven years at startup, growth, and established technology companies. Most recently a Software Development Manager, Senior Software Engineer, and Security Certifier at Amazon, Ampuero is a seasoned developer and leader. Before Amazon, Ampuero was an engineer at the Amazon-acquired tech startup, Graphiq. Throughout his work up and down the stack, he has created everything from front-end web applications to firmware to backend Natural Language Generation systems powering Alexa Knowledge answers in seven languages. He holds a bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from Washington University in St. Louis.
