Matt Kleiman is passionate about transforming the way the world builds software. Matt struggled with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and other learning disabilities during his first 8 years in the tech industry. Pivotal Labs’ core practices, such as pair programming and test-driven development, have revolutionized the way he works.  Thanks to Extreme Programming, he is now a successful member of each project team he joins.

Matt has spoken passionately about Extreme Programming and Lean Product Management at the 2016 Ability in Tech Summit (https://youtu.be/ZA_PI_nyEXY) and at tech talks in NY, Boston, and DC Pivotal Labs offices. In 2017 he won the lightning talk competition at Postgres Vision for a 4 minute talk on the power of bringing Test Driven Development into the open source community (https://youtu.be/9n_B7HLeOnk).
