Meet the Scrutinize Team

Scrutinize is operated by a passionate and dedicated team working hard to improve customer experience, ship great new features, and make bookkeepers more successful than ever before.

John Rea

John is the founder of Scrutinize. He built what  became Scrutinize while operating his own bookkeeping firm, Pacha Financial Services. John is laser focused on making Scrutinize an ultra-effective tool for bookkeepers. When he’s not spending his time on Scrutinize, John's out running around in the woods of Austin with his wife and dog.

Jack Van Norman

Jack is one of Scrutinize’s founding engineers. He formerly taught piano, but decided a coding keyboard suited him better than a MIDI one. Jack lives in Austin, TX, and is still involved in the music scene in his free time.

John French

“French” has led Scrutinize’s system architecture and framework since day one. A passionate developer, French can often be found booting up new side projects to help his community in Austin, TX.

Tyson Ferguson

Tyson is responsible for keeping the final Scrutinize app beautiful and user friendly. He’s a product designer, and a good one too. You can tell by how beautiful the Scrutinize platform is!

Andrew Baldwin

Andrew is the team's latest addition. Despite only working part-time, Andrew has rapidly become one of the engineering team's secret weapons. When the team has a big challenge, we hand it off to Andrew.
