“The project was somewhat easier than others since Blue Apron’s production manager, Gustavo Gonzalez, had many years of expertise in workflows. It was like old home week for me, since Gustavo really knew what Blue Apron needed, and it was really just a matter of translating his vision to the vjoon K4 software.”
