Ripjar, a data intelligence platform company for tackling financial crime, has announced the appointment of Joe Whitfield-Seed as its Chief Technology Officer (CTO).

As CTO, Whitfield-Seed will be responsible for the vision, strategy and delivery of solutions across Ripjar’s technology stack. He will lead the engineering team, implementing new artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) capabilities to drive growth.  

According to the company, Whitfield-Seed has been a part of Ripjar since its inception in 2013. He worked in national security for five years before joining as a founding member of the engineering team.  

In his previous role as Chief Architect, Whitfield-Seed launched new technologies, scaled the engineering team and formed lasting relationships with the company’s customers across all sectors. As CTO, he will continue building on these relationships to solve enduring challenges and accelerate the evolution of its technology, leaning on his extensive experience in designing and building complex data processing, AI and ML systems. 

“Joe has been an integral part of the team since the start and there is nobody who has a better understanding of Ripjar’s technology and our mission,” said Jeremy Annis, CEO, Ripjar. “Joe is in an ideal position to focus on expanding the engineering team and evolving our existing technology stack as we prepare to solve future challenges our customers may come up against.” 

“I was first attracted to Ripjar by the strength of the founders’ vision and the opportunity to counter criminal activity through technology,” Whitfield-Seed added. “Ripjar’s commitment to preparing its customers for evolving threat landscapes is a unique proposition and one I’m thrilled to be a part of. As we move into our next chapter, this principle remains at the heart of our technology and the challenges we are helping organisations overcome.”
