Seattle technology executive Matthew Schiltz has landed a new startup gig — just a week after he left cloud storage startup Symform. Schiltz’s new employer is Tier 3, an enterprise cloud management platform startup backed by Madrona Venture Group, Ignition, Intel Capital and others.

Bellevue-based Tier 3, which raised $10 million last September, touted 100 percent revenue growth last year. It’s cloud-based platform is sold to large organizations who use the platform to manage various applications. Services include a developer test environment; software-as-a-service hosting; disaster recovery; and storage — the specialty of Symform.

Schiltz has moved around a lot among some high-profile companies over the years, serving as CEO of startups such as Powerit, Docusign, General Software, CourtLink and, most recently, Symform. Schiltz is taking over the CEO reins at Tier 3 from founder Jared Wray, who will remain with the 7-year-old company as CTO. 

“Tier 3 is a leader in advanced enterprise cloud management,” said Schiltz. “Jared is a cloud visionary and the team at Tier 3 is impressive. I could not be more excited to lead Tier 3 through our next phase of growth and success.”
