Under Jason’s leadership, SeamlessWeb grew to serve over 10,000 enterprises and one million individuals in 22 cities throughout the U.S. and in London. It received a number of awards, including designation as one of Time Magazine’s 50 “coolest” websites and one of the best places to work by Crain’s magazine.

Prior to founding SeamlessWeb, Jason worked as a corporate attorney at the law offices of O'Sullivan Graev & Karabell (now O'Melveny & Myers), a private-equity and M&A-focused boutique.
