David Vorick

Co-founder, lead developer of Sia Core.

A quote from the reddit AUA:

I've been a programmer since about the age of 11. Back then it was mostly html & javascript. At the age of 13 I started building websites with databases in php. Eventually learned Java and then C, and went to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute to get my undergrad degree in Computer Science. My final semester, spring 2014, I primarily worked on Sia - my courseload was very light.

Ava Howell

Sia UI and Sia Core developer.

A quote from the reddit AUA:

I started programming around when I was 10, starting with SiMPLE (how archaic), eventually graduating to AppleScript, followed by Objective-C, Python, Javascript, C, and C++. I started my own freeware software development shop with a friend in middle school, we released a few OSX utilities that got a decent amount of usage. While I was in high school I became very interested in security and crypto, discovering Bitcoin in 2011. After high school I was the lead dev at a modestly successful imaging/computer-vision oriented startup, coding a desktop app in Qt/C++ as well as writing the core CV (alignment/contrast/sharpening) algorithms using OpenCV. My formal CS education consists of a spate of MIT OCW courses as well as years spent reading CS literature, doing other people's CS homework, and most importantly building and shipping software. I'm working on the front-end of Sia now, hoping to deliver a clean, well-built and easy to use UX around the core functionality, helping the network grow.

Zach Herbert

Vice President of Operations.

Zach dropped out of his MBA program at Harvard Business School after completing his first year to join Sia full-time in June 2017. He had been working as Head of Operations in a part-time capacity since January. Before HBS, he worked in product/project management for enterprise technology companies. Zach graduated from Boston University in 2014 with a degree in mechanical engineering.

Marcin Jachymiak

Software Engineering Intern. (Summer 2017)

I'm a rising junior at MIT majoring in computer science and engineering. Around the time I started high school I learned Python and starting reading a lot about math and computer science. At MIT, I joined the Bitcoin Club where I learned a lot about cryptocurrencies, met lots of cool people (including David) and have since become the club president. I like reading about cryptography, complexity theory, and philosophy, and enjoy programming (now in Go!).

Steve Funk

Community Manager.

Steve graduated college in 2007 with a degree in Music Industry, which somehow seemed like a good idea at the time. Over the next decade, he moved on to work with tech companies Dell, Apple, and Comcast, developing keen technical knowledge and a strong training background. Steve came on as community manager in August of 2017 and hopes to develop a more educated user base and facilitate communication between Sia and its users.

Christopher Schinnerl

Sia Core developer.

I grew up in Austria and studied at Graz University of Technology. Around the time I got my undergrad degree in Computer Science, I became very interested in IT security and the blockchain. Halfway through my Computer Science Major, I found out about Sia and started contributing to the core code, which led me to move to Boston in October 2017 and joining the team full-time.


To date, Nebulous has raised $1.65M in total funding in a combination of angel investments, venture capital, and grants. Investors include Procyon Ventures, Raptor Group, Fenbushi Capital, and angel investor Xiaolai Li.
