Chris Zacharias is founder and CEO of imgix. Prior to that, he was one of YouTube’s earliest web developers. He created YouTube’s HTML5 video player and Feather, an ultra-lightweight version of YouTube that loads quickly in parts of the world with slow internet connections.
These experiences drove Chris to recognize a need for tools that let developers build great visual experiences without adding bulk to their apps. In 2010, he founded imgix, a real-time image processing service that enables businesses of all sizes to deliver rich visual content with high performance and easy setup.
