Courier Notifications | CEO Troy Goode on the Code Story podcast | Startup | Y Combinator S19
Code Story podcast - Season 4 - Episode 13
Troy Goode is based in San Francisco, with his family of 3 kids. They are 10, 8 and 2… so they are back in diapers. He finds family life super rewarding, and loves to go outside, to the park, and spend time with his family.
His parents had a boat when he was growing up, and they lived in a rural area. He used to sail down (as a spectator, not a sailor) a nearby river in Virginia. As he got older, he missed the simple peace yet required work that came with sailing – so he picked it back up as an adult.
He’s worked on several startups as a VP of Engineering and CTO. At one point he was building a collaboration tool, and he was trying to mimic the hierarchy of Slack notifications. He figured it out it was not only difficult to build… but every developer was recreating this in their solution. He decided to build it one last time.
This is the creation story of Courier.
