Paul Dlug

Engineering, strategy, leadership for zero to one builds and complex digital transformations.

I'm co-founder and CEO of Caden AI, building tooling to enable developers to easily build production grade applications that leverage generative AI.

I've been a hands-on engineering leader my whole career, building products from zero to scale, re-architecting and scaling systems, and building the teams around them.
