About me

Tony Jamous is the CEO and co-founder of Oyster, a global employment platform that aims to remove the barriers to remote work and distributed hiring. Shaped by his upbringing in Beirut, Lebanon during a violent civil war, Tony is passionate about empowering talented individuals from emerging economies through access to global career opportunities. Tony was previously the CEO of CPaaS provider, Nexmo (now Vonage), before exiting in 2018 and launching Oyster with co-founder Jack Mardack in early 2020. With Oyster, Tony hopes to make it easier for companies everywhere to hire people anywhere.
