Former Simplecast CTO Stephen Hallgren joins Bumper as fractional CTO


January 9, 2024

We’re proud to announce that Stephen Hallgren has joined Bumper as fractional CTO to help us expand our suite of data-driven podcast growth tools.

Since launching Bumper in 2022, we’ve learned that our clients can benefit from a data-informed approach to podcast growth. We often start client engagements with a deep dive into historical performance. We analyze a show’s Listen Time, marketing effectiveness, and reach. This data – along with our proprietary in-house research tools – allows us to develop truly customized podcast growth plans.

Unfortunately, the tools needed to obtain the most accurate data insights for our clients are often unavailable in the market. In order to provide the best service to our clients, we decided to develop our own solutions that can aggregate and analyze podcast data. By doing so, Bumper’s existing podcast growth consulting services are further enhanced through our unique software solutions.

Stephen is helping us to continue developing our existing software as well as building new tools that have been on our wish list for a long time. Bumper’s current products include automated podcast measurement aggregation services that provide our clients with all their relevant performance data in one place.

Stephen, also known as Teevio, is a Full-Stack Product Engineer who has been working with startups for over 20 years. Most recently he was the CTO at Simplecast (before and after the acquisition by SiriusXM) and is currently running his own software development agency, nonfractional.

We look forward to announcing some new products very soon and welcome Stephen to the team. Thanks for coming on board!
