Nathan Probst

Co-Founder and Principal Solutions Architect

Nathan has over 20 years experience in technology, 15 years of which centered on technology product development. He joined Redeam as the technical co-founder and was responsible for developing its first go-to-market product: Redeam’s award-winning voucher scanning and digital redemption/reconciliation solution for tourist attractions that eliminates the need for having third-party-purchased paper tickets.
