Jason Fried

CEO & Founder @ Basecamp

Co-founder of 37signals, maker of Basecamp and co-author of "Rework", focused on collaboration&productivity

Jason Fried is the co-founder and president of 37signals, a Chicago-based company that builds web-based productivity tools that, in their words, “do less than the competition — intentionally.”

37signals’ simple but powerful collaboration tools include Basecamp, Highrise, Backpack, Campfire, Ta-da List, and Writeboard. 37signals also developed and open-sourced the Ruby on Rails programming framework.

Together with David Heinemeier Hansson, Fried co-authored the book Rework, focused on new ways to conceptualize working and creating. Salon’s Scott Rosenberg called it “a minimalist manifesto that’s profoundly practical. In a world where we all keep getting asked to do more with less, the authors show us how to do less and create more.”
