About Grant Spychka

As AE’s Captain of Customer Success, I get to bridge the gap between product development and customer feedback/insights, working closely with our development, marketing, and sales teams. Outside of work, I’m either running after my kids, running on trails for fun, or running an embarrassingly low K/D ratio in pretty much any game.
