Mynd, Inc., the tech-enabled property management company with an industry first real-time data mobile app for owners, announced today that it has added Scott Lowe to the engineering team. A pivotal hire for Mynd, Lowe was a founder and Chief Technology Officer of the Y-Combinator startup Castle, a greatly lauded competitor in the industry that introduced a breakthrough technology platform to property managers and owners in the Midwest.

“Castle was widely considered one of the top candidates to reinvent the residential property management industry,” said Colin Wiel, Co-founder and CTO of Mynd. “Scott led the creation of the advanced technology platform that powered Castle’s tech enabled service. We look forward to benefiting from Scott’s deep experience.”

Prior to joining Mynd, Lowe co-founded Rebirth Realty in conjunction with his work as a Venture for America Fellow. At Rebirth, Lowe raised funds to acquire and transform an abandoned Detroit mansion into a home for future Venture for America fellows. One of Venture America’s inaugural fellows, Lowe built a web-based, mobile marketplace to streamline the process of matching new fellows with VFA companies. Lowe has held numerous software engineering positions for technology companies including Digerati and Chalkfly, where he developed the company’s first mobile-responsive storefront.
