I am fascinated by the growing technology footprint in this world. And, I love to build great software working with smart, diverse, aligned engineering teams. I worked with teams in environments ranging from a 3-person startup (that I co-founded) to Fortune 100 companies with 22,000+ employees. Right now, I am obsessed with building and fostering incredible software engineering teams as the Senior Director of Engineering for SupportLogic, 100% remote globally distributed B2B SaaS company. Ask me what company/engineering culture really means or how to scale remote engineering teams and I will give you a earful over (virtual) lunch or coffee any day... guaranteed :)
