Professional Experience

Cedexis, Inc. – August 2014 - present (acquired by Citrix)

Principal Software Engineer. Lead developer of the platform team, responsible for the maintenance and growth of our internet-scale DNS and HTTP services.

When I joined, the codebase was five years old but still in startup mode: cross-dependencies and point solutions. The architecture was great; reliability and agility were suffering.

These services together handle 15 billion requests per day, about evenly split between DNS and HTTP. They run on machines in six cloud providers. My team runs 12 services, which in turn use a similar number of shared code modules.

UTi Worldwide – July 2013 - August 2014

Senior Software Engineer. Lead a small team to develop accounting reconciliation software for end-of-month close. Mentored two junior developers.
