THE TEAM

Matthew Rathbone

Matthew Rathbone

CEO and Co-founder
Dallas, TX

As CEO and co-founder, Matthew guides the product development, sales, and marketing at Beekeeper. In other words, he spends a significant amount of time putting together powerpoint presentations and Excel spreadsheets.

Prior to Beekeeper, Matthew ran a software engineering team at Shoutlet (acquired by Spredfast), built data systems at Foursquare, and created analytics systems at Drop.io (acquired by Facebook). Matthew has a M.Sc. in Computer Science from the Courant School of Mathematics at New York University, and an LL.B. degree from Northumbria University in the UK.

Outside of work, Matthew is a happy father and husband and enjoys biking around White Rock Lake.

Random Fact About Matthew:
Matthew found his second cat on the side of the road. This cat can do tricks – shake hands, turn around in a circle, and stand on his back two legs (all when inspired by food, of course) – but he won’t stop scratching the couch.
