Product and growth success across a range of industries

A hands-on, revenue-focused engineering leader who has grown and scaled products and teams across a range of industries (Banking, Insurance, Advertising and Security). I've lead in the early stage, from 0-20M ARR, and have also navigated the tricky waters of growing technology from 50 to over a 100 headcount (>150M revenue).


I've architected and developed applications that can handle 100s of thousands of requests per second (RTB) and deployed applications around the globe that are powering critical banking and insurance applications.
