Jonathan Heiliger
Founder & General Partner at Vertex Ventures US


Jonathan has a unique and unparalleled track record as an early-stage technology investor, entrepreneur and rebellious executive. In 2015, he started boutique venture firm VVUS, previously led Facebook’s infrastructure as the user population grew to over 900 million users, was COO of Opsware, and founded his first successful company before age 20. Simultaneously, Jonathan advised high growth companies such as Cloudera, Dropbox & Square. He’s an early backer of like-minded entrepreneurs in DesktopMetal, Higharc, LaunchDarkly, PerimeterX (now HUMAN Security), OpsLevel and Very Good Security, and serves as chairman of Webmonsters.

Jonathan is currently interested in meeting and investing in founders who focus on new systems for scaling infrastructure & DevOps teams, SaaS that creates time for knowledge workers in HR and sales, and b2b real estate tech. His founders are determined, go against-the-train, and passionate about solving hard problems with technology. Outside of tech, Jonathan serves on the board of the Exploratorium Museum of Science, art, and Human Perception.
