Mason Jones

VP of Engineering at Womply; co-founder of FinderLabs. I've worked at startups around San Francisco for over 20 years, building products and leading engineering teams.

Previously I was Chief Architect at RPX Corporation, developing tools to analyze the intellectual property landscape. Earlier, I was at SingleFeed, BlackArrow, DHAP Digital, Nickelodeon Online, and others.

I'm also a musician, primarily a guitarist. Previously I started the band SubArachnoid Space; my current project is Numinous Eye. I've also released many solo/collaborative albums over the years. I founded the Charnel Music label in the early 90s and put out records by bands like Crash Worship, Pain Teens, Gravitar, Fushitsusha, and Mainliner. I travel to Japan frequently, and have written extensively about Japan's independent music scene. I currently review records for Dusted Magazine.

In my nonexistent spare time I also write fiction, paint, and do graphic design for album covers, magazines, and books.
