Rich Thornett

In a Nutshell

Founder of Outer Join, the premier job board for remote work in data science, data analytics, data engineering, and machine learning.

I'm a long-time software developer and indie entrepreneur. I’ve spent over twenty years designing and developing software at blue chips and startups and have led efforts in product design and direction; software engineering and architecture; and hiring product teams.


I live on Boston’s North Shore in quirky and historic Salem, Massachusetts with my supastah wife, Susanna, and our two obstreperous delightfully irreverent children. I attended the oldest public college and the first public college in the United States and love that these are not the same school.
