Stephen Curial, CTO, Jungle Scout

(US and Canada) Jungle Scout, the leading all-in-one platform for selling on Amazon, today announced the appointment of Stephen Curial as its first Chief Technology Officer, poised to lead the company's remote-first engineering division.

Curial comes to Jungle Scout from Amazon, where he served as Director of Software Development and led a large global team. During his 10-year tenure at Amazon, Curial oversaw Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), the retail electronic data interchange (EDI) platform, and technology teams for the company's dropship business. During Curial's leadership at Amazon, the company saw a 704 percent increase in annual revenue. He helped launch over 120 features for sellers, launched FBA in nine countries, launched the FBA Small and Light program, and is a co-inventor on the patent for Seller Fulfilled Prime technology.

Curial's experience also includes software research and development roles at IBM, Xymbiant Systems, and the Government of Alberta. At Xymbiant, he created a natural language processing (NLP) framework that processed tens of thousands of natural language requests. At IBM, he implemented his thesis idea into their production compiler and directly contributed to setting world records on the four biggest benchmarks: SPECInt, SPECFloat, TCP-H, and LINPACK, which claimed the number one spot on the Supercomputing Top 500 list. 

He is passionate about growing and scaling innovative companies like Jungle Scout and jumped at the opportunity to take on a new challenge. The newly created role of CTO perfectly gels with Curial’s work experience, like technical experience, management skills, and background in the seller's business.

He has a Bachelor's and a Master's in Computing Science from the University of Alberta. Curial resides in Seattle and reports to Jungle Scout's Chief Product Officer, Michael Paulson.
