Blackfire is growing, and we’re proud to welcome Sümer as a Senior System Engineer!

Sümer Cip, working from Istanbul, Turkey

Introducing Sümer

Sümer has a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and prior experience as different Software Engineering related roles at Sony, Siemens and Nortel.

He founded 2 companies related to gaming and worked on various open source projects. Most notably, he is the creator of yappi, a profiler for Python.

Why Joining Blackfire?

I have always had a passion for optimizing things and have always been developing tools to pursue this in my profession. Blackfire.io is a well established company that has similar mission with some amazing engineers in their area of expertise. They have a great engineering culture and a great product that aims to help developers analyze their application performance in various ways. I will hopefully be helping them to add Python support to the product.


Some of Sümer’s missions at Blackfire

Sümer joined Blackfire to work on supporting Python with Blackfire (surprising, with his background, right?).

Welcoming Sümer enables Blackfire to accelerate on offering Application Performance Management software for the Python market, thanks to his technical skills, his work on yappi and his knowledge of the Python community.

Christophe Dujarric

Christophe is the Chief Product Officer at Blackfire. He's an engineer, but probably one of the least "tech" people in the company. He's wearing many hats, from product management to marketing and sales. He loves the beauty of simple solutions that solve actual problems.
