I’m very excited to announce that I’ve joined DLVR to head up their engineering efforts. As a software engineer in Seattle, an area home to the biggest technology companies in the world, there were a lot of different opportunities to explore. But with strong roots in media and the tremendous growth taking place in digital media, figuring out how to meet unprecedented consumer demand for online video seemed like a challenge I couldn’t pass up.
I spent 15 years at ESPN in Bristol, CT and Seattle, WA, working on every type of engineering problem, from product development to operations. My time at ESPN, as well as Doubledown Interactive, has taught me the value of delivering high quality, scalable experiences that are flexible enough to meet the evolving needs of the customer.
Today, major media broadcasters including ESPN are making big investments in every facet of digital media, whether it’s figuring out how to deliver live linear channels to every screen, or launching new esports networks, or delivering dynamic, personalized channels for every viewer. The one common requirement across all of these viewing experiences is to maintain a high quality video stream. As the online video opportunity gets bigger, so do the demands on the internet, the networks and the software that connects each viewer to their content.
