Every problem is a gift—without problems we would not grow.”

FrigginYeah! is based in sunny Southern California with our home office in Manhattan Beach, California.
East coast work ethic with a West coast ease of doing business. We aim to help Brands so much so that they want to yell “FrigginYeah!” when they finally get access to clean, reliable, and actionable eCommerce product data.
We started with one goal: to do price monitoring better than anyone else in the business... for Brands! While we are the best in price monitoring, doing it for Brands really helps set us apart. So every development step we take, we do so in the effort to improve a Brand’s use of our services.
Tom founded FrigginYeah! with the original vision of building a premier level Data-as-a-Service platform. Since that time, we have pivoted direction based on market demands and have become aligned with Brands and the eCommerce market. But the core mission is still the same in that we are constantly striving to build a Crazy-Good eCommerce Product Monitoring platform. Before founding FrigginYeah!, Tom was the COO and VP of Sales of Connotate, a web data extraction platform, and before that, the VP of Ops at another web data extraction platform company: Fetch Technologies (acquired by Connotate). Getting access to web data has been in his blood for 8 years. He has helped build some of the most complex web automation solutions out there for Background Search, Financial Services, and a Host of VC-backed orgs.
Hobbies: Face painting, Triathlon Training (not racing so much), Camping, Reading, Hiking around the Rockies, and enjoying good food.
Jennifer joined FrigginYeah! as the Head of Ops. In this role, she is responsible for the day-to-day workings of the FY platform. Before FrigginYeah!, Jennifer was the Director of Operations at Connotate, and going way back, she was a Jill-of-all-trades at Fetch Technologies, the aforementioned web data extraction company, from roughly 2000 to 2011. That’s about 20 years spent wrangling data from the web, so there is no better person to lead the charge in ensuring our customers get the high-quality data they expect.
Hobbies: Reading, Bike Riding, Furry Friends, Bird Ogling
