Cloud-based, software-as-a-service company DockWorks, which provides operations solutions for marine-related businesses, yesterday announced in a statement that it appointed Benjamin Johnson as chief technology officer.

Johnson co-founded Legalinc Corporate Services, which was later acquired by LegalZoom and where Johnson spent four years as director of software engineering.

“Ben’s experience and expertise as an operations manager and in cloud migration and application modernization is exactly what the DockWorks team needs to lead our development at this stage in our growth,” said Jeremy Hermanns, co-founder and CEO of DockWorks, in the statement. “Hiring Ben demonstrates our commitment to build a best-in-class platform that is scalable and resilient.”

The company said Johnson has an open-source programming background with “hands-on skill in various tech stacks.” He has created and led scaled engineering teams “through short-term performance improvements that lead to long term solutions.”

“I love working with startups and enterprises to build world-class teams,” Johnson said in the statement. “I am excited to help create a high- velocity process that will be enjoyable to both the business expansion and the development teams.”
