Ryan Day moved to Silicon Valley from Nebraska at nineteen-years-old. With his passion for technology, the locale immediately felt like home. And, with a constant hunger to learn and acquire a 'very particular set of skills', Ryan has since held a variety of technical and leadership roles leading up to his joining Mirantis in 2015. In his role as Field CTO of Platform, Ryan works globally with Mirantis' customers and partners, guiding and informing adoption of emerging technologies and open-source-software, while at the same time learning first-hand from customers in order to inform and influence Mirantis' products and services. In his spare time, Ryan loves playing around with home automation projects with his two young daughters, riding his motorcycle in the Santa Cruz Mountains and plotting what skills to acquire next.
