Startup company seeking new talent in West County


Ross Lugos is a man on a mission. His story begins in San Pablo, where he attended Bayview Elementary, St. Paul School, Salesian College Prep, and eventually UC Berkeley, where he graduated with a degree in civil engineering.

After a long and winding road in the corporate world, Lugos managed to track down his fellow Cal buddy, Steven Khuong, a self-made businessman who has several companies and a patent under his belt, and who also runs the Ice Chamber Athletic Performance Training near Point Isabel Regional Park.

Together, with Brian Meckler, a Stanford grad, the partners looked at a world of unexplored territory: early learning childcare. Curacubby brings preschools into the 21st century by providing an automated and secure online payment system for preschools, after school programs, and early learning centers.

Lugos is the Chief Operating Officer, and has set his eyes on West County to find new talent to join his company.

“There are very few, if any, Silicon Valley-backed startups in the East Bay,” says Lugos. “We believe that there are hardworking people here [in Contra Costa County] who are qualified for our open positions but may lack opportunities to join a start up in their area. We know these folks are willing to work hard and be successful.”  

If you live in West Contra Costa County, be sure to come out next Monday, Aug. 27 from 5 p.m.-6:30 p.m. at the San Pablo Economic Development Corp. for their on-site recruitment. RSVP here.  Curacubby is seeking people with retail or telesales experience with excellent phone, chat, and email communication, a relentless attitude, detail orientated, and ability to multitask and meet weekly quotas.


  1. Great idea. Ensure you have broad advertisement so all the talented tech and business focused individuals know about this. So many people simply default to opportunities in SF b/c that don’t hear of any in the East Bay.
