Centerfield EVP of Technology Kuntal Shah Shares His Vision for the Future
Settling into his new role as Centerfield’s executive vice president of technology, Kuntal Shah had the opportunity to reflect on his vision for scaling the company’s engineering, IT, data warehouse, and data science efforts in a recent interview with Built In LA.
Kuntal has more than 20 years of engineering leadership experience at companies like eBay and Realtor.com. Today, he leads a team of 70 cross-functional engineers in building Centerfield’s automated, end-to-end customer acquisition technology, which is powering more than 2 million sales each year.
In looking ahead, as the company grows and expands into new verticals, Kuntal said Centerfield’s technology team will play a crucial role in building new customer solutions, as well as helping our business scale and run efficiently. He anticipates continued experimentation, along with a deeper adoption of artificial intelligence and workflow automation.
The key to scaling an efficient team? “Rigor in planning, execution, software release, and post-release activities play a big role in achieving that predictability,” said Kuntal. “It is my goal to bring that focus to Centerfield while making sure it does not negatively impact the agility with which the company has been operating.”
