DIFFBLUE, the Oxford-based world leader in AI for code, today announces the appointment of Jeremy Perlman as Chief Revenue Officer. Perlman will lead Diffblue’s marketing and sales efforts. He will focus on global expansion of Diffblue’s products, which use AI to improve the productivity of software developers.

 

Jeremy has over 20 years experience in the technology sector, having previously been VP for EMEA Sales at TRIFACTA, the Google-backed global data preparation provider which raised $48m in a Series D funding round in January 2018.

 

Prior to Trifacta, Jeremy served as the Managing Director for EMEA of APIGEE, the full lifecycle API management platform, ahead of its IPO and acquisition by Google.
