ryan-tallRyan Goodwin – Vice President, Technology

Ryan has been working on the Trader family of sites since 2001, starting as a junior programmer.  Sine then, he’s worked on many of the search technology, IMT, SEO, and mobile products.  In his current role as Vice President of Technology, he works to make the sites as effective lead generation tools as possible.  Since taking this role, the site’s traffic has nearly doubled and lead generation has more then doubled.  He believes a concentrated effort to pursue conversion rates is the foundation of a useful website that solves both Buyer and Seller pain points.  This is done by relying on his deep background in technology and hunger to learn about how Buyers and Sellers are using our products, then fixing or expanding our capabilities.  He reads every feedback email received, and while he can’t respond to all of them, they are noted and often drive changes in our offerings.
