Transposit, the data-driven DevOps automation company, today announced that Bill Scott joined as Vice President of Engineering. Scott brings over 20 years of experience building and launching scalable platforms at large, Fortune 500 companies including PayPal, Netflix, and Yahoo! A seasoned product, design, and technology executive, Scott will oversee the engineering team and help ensure that Transposit’s engineering systems are scalable, reliable, and continue to meet customer needs.
“Bill adds a wealth of knowledge to our leadership team and brings an outstanding track record of driving innovation and high-performance teams,” said Divanny Lamas, CEO at Transposit. “His deep experience in guiding cross-functional engineering organizations in fast-paced product development will be instrumental as we continue to extend our platform to more enterprise use cases.”

Scott’s long career also includes leadership positions at Yahoo!, Sabre, and American Airlines.
“What excites me about Transposit is its innovative DevOps platform that automates processes while keeping humans in the loop. It addresses pain points in engineering operations in a way that neither legacy nor niche vendors are doing right now,” said Scott. “The team and culture that Transposit has been cultivating are also unmatched. It’s rare to find a company that blends high performance with fairness, diversity, and kindness. I’m looking forward to working closely with this talented team.”
Transposit provides data-driven automation for DevOps. It increases application uptime and improves quality of life for engineers. Designed for complex stacks, Transposit’s platform provides a single home for operations and incidents that surfaces relevant context across human and machine activities to drive root cause analysis, shrinking mean time to resolution (MTTR). DevOps, site reliability engineers (SREs), and other on-call engineering teams use Transposit’s human-centric workflow automation to increase velocity during incidents and when operations are running smoothly. Transposit gathers all the data engineering teams need and lets them take direct action in any system in the toolchain via Slack or Transposit’s interface with the touch of a button, so they can resolve issues faster with precision. Transposit Mission Control is a unified command center with real-time visibility, streamlined communication, stakeholder dashboards, and searchable, automated documentation. The platform dynamically systematizes processes and serves interactive runbooks to guide incident triage and daily operations, reducing stress, eliminating toil, and ensuring consistency.
