About Me

Proposal Manager and Full-Stack Developer

Ilan Gross-Timerman, CF APMP

I'm a full-stack web developer and proposal manager with three years of experience in the SaaS industry across systems of record, systems of engagement, and systems of agreement.

Originally from Brazil, I grew up speaking Portuguese and picked up Spanish in school. After moving to Florida for college, I earned a degree in Sustainability from the Honors College at Florida International University. During that time, I worked part-time at FIU's startup and entrepreneurship center designing opportunities around Design Thinking and Social Entrepreneurship and was involved in multiple teaching assistant positions.

Since then, I've gained over three years of SaaS experience and managed over $47 million in enterprise RFX opportunities in three different companies.

When I'm not working, I love spending time with my fiancé Nate and our two dogs, Shadow and Bryce.
