Rechis is a Twitter alum, where he led the development of Twitter’s mobile platform and has since worked with several industry powerhouses as an interaction designer, product manager and head of product. He was a member of the Android launch team at Google, and he’s played a key role in strategy and design for Kickstarter and Etsy, to name a few.
Rechis is a familiar face in Cornell Tech’s Studio, where he leverages his extensive experience designing platforms with engineers and is a hands-on mentor to both our computer science and MBA students as they work together on company and start-up projects.
