In Episode 16, I interview the CEO of #Topcoder and Global Head of Crowdsourcing for IT-services leader Wipro, Michael Morris. Topcoder is the world’s largest technology network and on-demand digital talent platform with a global community of 1.5M+ design, development, and data science experts. Mike has served in leadership roles at Topcoder since 2002. A gig economy expert, he speaks worldwide about cultivating a passionate workforce to drive the transformative nature of digital innovation across every industry imaginable.
Previously a GM|SVP at Appirio, Mike led its crowdsource offering (Cloudspokes) through the acquisition of Topcoder, and then managed customer, sales and services teams to solidify the Topcoder brand as the largest open workforce provider in the world. He was an integral part of Topcoder becoming a Wipro company through the acquisition of Appirio in 2016.
An active Boston College alumnus; guest lecturer at institutions like Harvard University, MIT, New York University and the University of California Berkeley; and an engineer at heart, Mike continues to lead the open workforce revolution by empowering organizations with limitless software development possibilities and unprecedented access to Topcoder’s talented multinational technologists.
