Founder & CEO
Maen is the CEO and Founder of Replate. Growing up as a Syrian, Maen saw the effects of poor access to food nearly every day. After immigrating to California, he was disappointed to find similar disparities within San Francisco and was inspired to build Replate. Today, he and his talented team aim to solve inefficiency in the food supply chain by matching surplus food from businesses with communities in need. He’s passionate about food waste, food insecurity, and the circular economy (fittingly) but he also loves people, cultures, the beach, and listening to reggaeton and flamenco music.
Tech Lead & Full Stack Engineering
As Replate’s Tech Lead and Full Stack Engineer, Don fixes all the things. He builds new software features, manages technical contributions, and makes sure our applications are always up and running. He joined Replate in 2017, inspired by the opportunity to feed hungry people and help the environment at the same time. Outside of work, Don likes to read and enjoys board games and puzzles. He also is a cat person (the best ones are).
Director of Operations
Katie is Director of Operations at Replate. She coordinates logistics, streamlines systems, and fosters partnerships with donors and recipients. Why Replate? She loves being part of an impactful organization that is helping to alleviate food waste and hunger. In addition to reading one book per week, Katie loves to cook, bake, hike, travel, and spend time with family.
Engineering & Operations
Jonah is our Operations and Software Associate. At mission control (Replate HQ), he oversees pickups and deliveries, hires and manages food rescuers, and onboards new donors and recipients. He’s dedicated to doing work that’s meaningful, has a tangible impact, and is undeniably good. In his spare time, Jonah is building a platform to sponsor children’s education in a small community in Uganda.
Social Media & Community
Jen is our Social Media and Community Manager and is passionate about shifting culture to lessen human impact on the planet. At Replate, she finds fun ways to engage our community in food recovery on the ground and via online platforms like social and video. Jen is also a professional photographer and enjoys creating art out of recycled materials. Other hobbies include playing outside, making delicious vegan food, and (not-so) secretly obsessing over postcards and beautiful dishware.
Design & Frontend Engineering
Eric supports design and frontend engineering at Replate. He joined the team in 2016 and is inspired by how quickly the team has made an impact in tackling food waste and hunger. Eric is currently a senior at UC Berkeley (Go Bears!) studying computer science and design. In his free time, he loves running, travel, photography, and playing with his husky.
Graphic Design & Engagement
As a graphic designer, Stephanie supports community engagement for Replate through the creation of graphics and visual media. She’s motivated by Replate’s dual environmental and social mission, as well as the commitment to supporting and personalizing the food donation user experience. Stephanie is currently an architecture student at UC Berkeley. When she’s not building models in the architecture studio, chances are she’s daydreaming about her next travel destination, exploring new cities, singing along at live concerts, or watercoloring the landscape.
Lead Food Rescuer
As Lead Food Rescuer, Matt provides critical system support for daily deliveries and future growth at Replate. He’s happy to be contributing to a cause that’s ending hunger and sustainably managing resources. When he’s not saving the day by making sure every last meal goes to a hungry person, Matt is busy adventuring with his family and creating art.
Eva develops content for Replate’s blog and website to spread the word about the importance of food recovery. She’s struck by Replate’s mission to use advanced technology to improve the livelihood of individuals and the planet. In her free time, she enjoys running, traveling, and cuddling her black cat Jiji.
Jack is a Product Specialist at Replate. He gets to know customers and analyzes data to collaborate on product direction. He believes in continually learning and improving the experience for both donors and recipients. In his free time Jack likes to cook tasty meals and enjoy them with his family and friends. If he is not cooking or at work you will find him outside.
