Josh Koenig, Co-founder & Chief Strategy Officer
As Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Josh is focused on making the Open Web a first class platform for delivering results. Championing the value of the developer experience, and the need to demonstrate impact with data, his work combines the visionary ideals of Open Source with the pragmatic utility of the agile approach.

As a very early Drupal adopter (user #3313), Josh was part of the team that drove the first high-profile public Drupal use-case with the Howard Dean campaign in 2003. He went on to found the Drupal Dojo, an online learning community for developers, and to co-found the premiere Drupal agency in San Francisco, Chapter Three.
The web is the cornerstone of modern campaigns, causes, businesses and brands, and the demand for quick, quality digital experiences is high and only getting higher. At Pantheon, Josh’s mission is to liberate web teams from the confines of enterprise monoliths and the drudgery of infrastructure operations so they focus on their real strategic goals using the highest-quality tools of the trade.
David Strauss, Co-Founder & CTO
Website builders walk a tightrope between triumph and defeat. The best days promise opportunity, but an inability to scale can squander it. The worst days feature attackers trying to overwhelm or compromise infrastructure. Pantheon Cofounder and CTO David Strauss has focused his career on these twin challenges: making content sites more scalable and secure—without complicating the developer experience.
If you’ve ever deployed an enterprise website, chances are you’ve benefited from one of the tools he’s developed. After co-founding Four Kitchens, a successful web development shop, David found himself gravitating away from custom client work and toward infrastructure solutions. Large clients like NBCUniversal, The Economist, and Wikimedia had already benefited from his scalability and database optimization work.
Now he wanted to use this expertise to improve websites for everyone. When the opportunity to build an all-in-one website platform came along, he knew he needed to be a part of it. In addition to his role as Pantheon CTO, David also co-maintains the system layer that runs on most of the world’s Linux systems, protects Drupal’s integrity via the Security Team, co-organizes the annual All Systems Go! Conference, and contributes to AMP as a member of the Technical Steering Committee.
In the past, David served on the Drupal Advisory Board, the Drupal.org Infrastructure Team, the Fedora Server Working Group (which substantially shaped Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7), and as a maintainer for BCFG2 (a systems management tool popular in academic supercomputing). In addition to the previously named projects, David has contributed to WordPress, curl, Jenkins, Twisted Python, and numerous other free, open-source projects.
Matthew Cheney, Co-Founder & Principal Developer Advocate
The creation, dissemination and consumption of information is one of the world’s most important processes. A formally trained librarian and traveler to over 125 countries, Matt Cheney has seen first-hand the global importance of this flow of information and the critical role that open-source technology can play in enabling that flow.
For more than ten years, Matt has been active in the open source community, helping organize events that empower developers (BADCamp, Drupalcon SF), contributing code to the Drupal project that modernizes the end user experience (Panels, Panopoly), and co-founding a website consulting company that works directly with clients to share their information with the world (Chapter Three).
He co-founded Pantheon to make freely available development and hosting tools which makes it easier for everyone to launch and run websites. Technology should be an enabler — not a barrier — and Matt’s hope is that Pantheon can make the web better for everyone.
