I am a senior technical manager/director of software development. I began writing code in the private sector right out of college and moved into technical management. I’ve managed engineers in the development, release and support functions of the software lifecycle.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering and an MBA. This gave me a solid foundation for my practical experience. I’ve been involved in 3 start-ups. Here is what I’ve learned: hire only the best, build an agile organization and preserve capital. Two of these start-ups went through successful IPO’s during my tenure.
I understand that software development is a system of disciplines. Management experience in these disciplines enables me to effectively direct the system or, as necessary, focus on any of its components. These skills and an ability to simplify complexity allow me the opportunity to continuously improve the product. This is what I enjoy doing.
I have a record for shipping quality software products on time and supporting them to end-of-life. I have worked with customers at all levels, and in the most challenging situations. Understanding their business and providing pathways to their success, lays the groundwork for “ours”.
I know it’s time consuming to find and hire good talent. My goal here is to communicate the depth and breadth of my capabilities so you can effectively determine if I have what you’re looking for.
I would welcome an opportunity to discuss how I might contribute to your success.
Thanks for reviewing my credentials, and all the best in your endeavors.
