Ben Reuveni
Co-Founder & CEO

Ben Reuveni is Co-Founder and CEO of Gloat. In his role, Ben oversees Gloat’s growth strategy and has a keen understanding for business agility as well as a mission to improve workplace culture from within. Prior to founding Gloat, Ben spent six years at IBM in a series of roles ranging from the Core Development team of the R&D Division to global customer-facing responsibilities. 

Ben’s passion for talent and career development derives from his early background as a member of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Ben demonstrated an extraordinary EQ and was asked to focus on unlocking the work capacity and skills of his squadron. He committed his time to sharpening the unit’s hiring algorithm in an effort to better understand a recruit’s full potential and skillset and to match them to the right opportunities within the military.

Ben’s time in the military and at IBM inspired him to support the discovery of internal talent and the maturation of career opportunity, in lock step with the future of work leading to the creation of Gloat.

Ben holds a B.Sc. in Computer Science from the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC), Herzliya.
