Dustin started his tenure with Covideo as an intern in 2011 making cold calls while also roofing full-time. After the success he saw from utilizing Covideo for his roofing business and the genuine appreciation he received from other Covideo users who were seeing similar results, he made the switch to working for Covideo full-time as the first official Covideo salesperson. Dustin is now an account manager, specializing in the automotive industry. He received his degree in Business Administration from DeVry University in 2014. Outside of Covideo, Dustin enjoys microbrews, food, meeting new people, and spending time with his wife and their dog, Barley.
Jason – or Coop as he’s known by nearly everyone – is one of Covideo’s cofounders. After graduating from Purdue University in 2003 with a degree in Computer Science, he teamed up with fellow co-founder/childhood friend/college roommate/ping pong partner, Jason Price, and wrote the original code base for what we now know as Covideo. Today, he serves as the VP of Technology – a.k.a. resident problem solver. In his spare time, Coop enjoys cooking (although not as much as he did before cutting carbs out of his diet), going to concerts, and spending time with his fiancé and their two dogs, Eleanor and Franklin. Their next pet will appropriately be named Theo.
Mike is the senior statesman of the Covideo Team, where he’s lead within the automotive department for nearly eight years. Mike brings more than 18 years of automotive retail experience, which makes him an invaluable resource for Covideo’s many dealership users – coaching them on best practices to better engage their customers through the power of video. Outside of work, Mike’s competitive nature keeps him active in sports like golf, tennis, and cornhole (is that a sport?) He is driven to leave a legacy for his two sons – 23 and 14 years of age – but refuses to provide them dating advise… “Work hard – Play hard – HAVE FUN!”
Meagan is the Design Manager with Covideo. She has been with the company for 10 years. She always tries to make sure all your designs are pixel perfect! Originally from Wisconsin, she graduated from Purdue with a degree in Interactive Multimedia Design. She is a wannabe foodie, who is too picky of an eater to be considered a real one. She loves DIY, nature and all things Harry Potter.
Katie joined Covideo in January of 2015 to help build the customer success department. Afterwards, she transitioned to business development to help launch the program and currently enjoys establishing new relationships with the dealerships she works with.

John – who actually goes by Jan around the office, but no one seems to know why – is a self-taught code ninja. He’s been geeking out with Covideo for the past decade and loves how the atmosphere is more like a family than a collection of strangers who spend nine hours a day together. When he’s not slaying code, he enjoys hiking, working on his car, riding his bike, paintballing and martial arts - so the “code ninja” thing is only partly a joke. It’s one of his two truths and a lie at summer camps and slumber parties.

She brings nine years of sales, customer service and account management experience to her new position, along with a lot of positive vibes. She’s most excited about getting YOU excited about Covideo!

While technically the Customer Support Manager, Caitlin also helps to train Covideo users and serves as the company’s resident cheerleader, social chair and general caretaker for all. Caitlin joined the Covideo team in August of 2015 and couldn’t be happier about it. In fact, she looks forward to coming to work every day so much that she picks out her outfit the night before (and always looks fierce). She’s a 2013 graduate of Butler University and lifelong Indianapolis resident. When she’s not enthusiastically and patiently helping Covideo users, she spends her time nannying, scoping out the food scene in Indy, hanging out with friends and going to music festivals.

Keirstin came to Covideo in April of 2016 after graduating from IUPUI the previous year with a degree in Sports Management (but fully admits to knowing surprisingly little about sports). Although her title is technically Customer Success Specialist she actually prefers Customer Happiness Specialist. If you ever talk to her on the phone you’ll get it – she’s REALLY happy. She enjoys training and teaching Covideo users so that they can use the software to its full potential. Keirstin is a Pinterst fanatic, unashamed fan of rap music, and lover of all things outdoors – fishing, camping, canoeing. If she could travel to any country she’d go to Greece…mainly for the food.
Makenzie is a 2014 graduate of Indiana University where she earned a degree in Public Health. After a short (hot) stint in Arizona working for Verizon’s health and wellness department, the promise of full-time work and her family and friends lured her back to the Hoosier state. Makenzie loves that Covideo allows her to work in an emerging field with business owners nationwide, helping them and their businesses in totally new and innovative ways. In her spare time, she likes going to music festivals, running in Spartan and Warrior dashes, and spending time with her rescue pup, Gryffin.

John is the newest addition to the Covideo team, making the jump from logistics to tech in early 2017. With a decade of experience at a Fortune 500 3PL, he is looking forward to growing the company into new verticals and having some fun along the way (see: working at Covideo). Originally from Michigan, John lived in Chicago and St. Louis before settling in Indiana. His flashy socks and affinity for The Boss indicate that he is still youthful despite all the grey hair. When he and his wife, Alex, aren’t chasing around their one-year-old son, Jack, they enjoy traveling and going to concerts. One day he hopes to sink a shot from his office into the tiny basketball hoop that hangs from the conference room door.

He loves the fact that Covideo genuinely helps businesses communicate better, ultimately driving more sales and creating better relationships. Ross in a nutshell: Phish. Grateful Dead. Notre Dame football. Indy Car racing. Purdue basketball. Oh, and just when you thought you had him pegged, this same man also loves otters – specifically, Asian small-clawed otters. They’re “wild, but just so adorable.” End quote.
