Michael Grant has joined the company as VP of Global Sales, while Carlos Rocha Gonçalves and Filipe Pereira, who have been with the company since the seed stage, have been promoted to VP of Growth and VP of Engineering, respectively.
Prior to joining Jscrambler, Michael Grant was the former VP of Global Sales at ThreatConnect, after tenures as VP of Sales at Binary Fountain, Virtacore and iland.

Carlos Rocha Gonçalves, newly appointed VP of Growth, has been part of the company’s growth journey since 2014, leading and growing the customer-facing areas while Jscrambler quickly matured its product offering and expanded operations globally. With unique insight into the application security landscape, market drivers and customer needs, Carlos will lead growth efforts, including Marketing, Partnerships and Customer Success.
Filipe Pereira, newly appointed VP of Engineering, has been with Jscrambler since 2017, managing all Engineering and IT operations as well as customer support and delivery. Filipe will be the driving force behind the company’s engineering expansion, ensuring that Jscrambler will continue to provide cutting-edge application security solutions that are fast to deploy and easy to use.
“When you’re executing a hyper-growth stage, you need to make sure you have the brightest minds leading your organization,” said Rui Ribeiro, CEO and Co-Founder of Jscrambler. “I’m thrilled to be welcoming Michael to our organization and to see how we were able to evolve the way Carlos and Filipe can continue to contribute to our expansion as a company.”
After raising $15 million in Series A financing in September 2021, Jscrambler has quickly accelerated its growth, expanding in North America, Europe and South America, and expanding its team by 50%.
“As we expected, software supply chain attacks have grown, urging the need for robust application security,” said Pedro Fortuna, CTO and Co-Founder of Jscrambler. “Appointing Michael, Carlos and Filipe as VPs will accelerate our vision to protect our customers’ business from financial and reputational damages caused by these attacks.”
