It worked by turning our infrastructure into a lightweight CDN and set the developers workstation as an origin server. The project let staff sideload and/or replace all our content dynamically in experiments and drill down to target particular audiences to carry out investigations into fraud or understanding bugs that could only be seen in the wild.

What I Do
I solve problems and teach others to solve their problems. During crunch time I roll up my sleeves and do the coding or the fire fighting when necessary. I enjoy solving problems, I want to understand and solve yours.
Got things done. Kept a cool head as the proverbial hit the fan...every day. Understands that only 5% of a problem is technical.
Also, ran and built infrastructure and development teams. Solved problems in the deadline latency real time bidding space, built ad servers and created highly available services on the cheap sans cloud.
Solving the problems you know you have as well as the ones you do not know. Either an individual or small group that needs a part time remote co-founder or virtual CTO. I want to get out there and figure out your commercials, work outside my comfort zone and solve hard problems.
