Stephen Phillips


Over the last 25 years I have been honing my craft designing and building sophisticated applications in a multitude of ever changing technologies for solving complex modern world problems in the mobile, web and embedded software space.

I am the co-founder and creator behind Votion products, crafting the future of brand to consumer relationships. Our platform allows clients to create engagement campaigns that build dialogs with their customers through interactive storytelling. Architected as a SaaS platform with customizable widgets that can be embedded anywhere and run on any device, allowing the ultimate flexibility and usability which greatly increases user engagement, time on site and retention. Votion is a graduate company from the LAUNCH incubator which is run by angel investor Jason Calacanis who was our lead investor on our AngelList seed round.

I was previously the Director of Engineering for Wrapify, another LAUNCH graduate, helping the company scale its initial MVP to enterprises capacity through process streamlining and automation, ultimately securing a $6.1M Series A round.

A majority of my technical background comes from my experience as a Technical Architect/Solutions Architect for Acquity Group/Accenture and Lyons Consulting Group where I led the eCommerce implementations for the Salesforce Commerce Cloud/Demandware divisions.

Over my career, I have done consulting and development work for some of world’s leading brands including Google, Nike, Converse, Motorola, JoAnn Fabrics, Forever21, Adobe, Adidas, TaylorMade, Ashworth, Godiva, Dunkin Donuts, Nike, Converse, Hot Topic, Torrid, Sequenom, DiscoveRx, Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, SAIC, Gateway Computers, Mitchell International, Dataquick Information Systems, ProFlowers, Nixon, Road Runner Sports, First American Title and Wrapify.
