Meet the owner

Rapid Software is a Pittsburgh based single-member LLC that was incorporated by Jonathan O’Brien in 2020. Frustrated with typical technology services, the idea was to provide “engineering without the overhead”.

It all started in 2006 at Mckula Inc, a small web development firm based in Norvelt, PA. While only responsible for minor HTML and CSS modifications, this is where Jonathan developed a passion for being an entrepreneur. In 2008, he left to obtain a Bachelor’s of Science in Computer Information Systems at California University of Pennsylvania. While there, he began offering web and mobile development services under the fictitious business name “Nanofied Productions”. The projects completed during his studies paid for tuition and provided business experience that can’t be taught in a classroom.

In 2012 he began working in the risk analytics department at PNC Bank in downtown Pittsburgh. After the financial crisis of 2008, banks were required to follow new regulations due to revisions in the Basel Accords. Working on topics like credit concentration and economic capital, Jonathan used data to reduce risk.

Currently, he works in the data warehousing department at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh in Lawrenceville, PA. His primary focus has been utilizing real-time data to improve the quality of care and increase patient satisfaction.
