Monic is Joel and Brian. We're obsessive about building good software.


Joel Burget, Co-founder

Joel started his career at Khan Academy, where he learned everything he knows about software engineering and growing a small team. He left Silicon Valley for New York, where he ended up at JP Morgan. While at JP, Joel worked on programming language and blockchain projects with Brian.

Away from the computer he loves exploring LA and beyond, cooking, eating, and weather that never drops below 60 °F.

Brian Schroeder, Co-founder

Brian has worked on search engines, web crawlers, web and mobile applications, stream processing, and R&D. He designed and implemented editorial databases and entity resolution systems for video and sports data at Gracenote.

Most recently he focused on consensus protocols and building smart contract languages, as a member of the Quorum core team at JPMorgan.

Brian gets most excited about applying programming language theory to systems built atop open protocols. He studied CS at UC Berkeley, and lives in Brooklyn with his girlfriend and their cat, Louis.
