Chief Software Architect
Chris Sears is Chief Software Architect for Skillable and oversees development of the lab development platform. Chris takes immense pride in building software that is powerful and feature-rich, yet also intuitive, elegant and easy-to-use. Chris got his start in software engineering in 1999 to supplement his budding music career. He quickly realized his passion for building great software equaled his passion for playing music. Chris’s non-musical gigs spanned the private and public sector, including projects with Dell, Northrop Grumman and the Department of Defense.
Chris got involved in the training space in 2003 while developing systems for the U.S. Army in Europe. While there, he first met Phyllis and Clay Scott. In 2007, Chris, Clay and Phyllis formed Terillian Technologies Inc., with Chris overseeing all software development duties.
Chris holds a liberal arts degree from the University of Texas at Austin. He graduated from the Plan II Honors program and is a member of Phi Beta Kappa Honors Society.
