Joe founded Team WIKISPEED in 2006, and with the distributed, collaborative, volunteer team tied for 10th place in the Progressive Insurance Automotive X Prize and in the process formalized eXtreme Manufacturing, a process adapting the fastest moving methods of fast moving software startups to non-software development, testing, and manufacture.

Lucky for Joe, this is tremendously enjoyable and rewarding work, resulting in faster time to value in industries from medical devices to construction.
