Jacob S. - Ruby

Jacob S. - Ruby

I’m a graduate of Tufts University, with a MS in engineering management, but I first started developing at age 10 with BASIC (not the Visual kind!). Since then, I’ve built a social collaboration platform with over a million users, worked as VP of engineering for several medium-sized businesses, and fallen more and more in love with scaleable systems.

At my best when I’m working with back-end technologies and scalability. I have extensive experience with multi-TB databases. I mostly work with Postgres and MySQL, but am also more than comfortable working with MSSQL, Ruby, and Ruby on Rails for platform development work. I enjoy API’s, databases, scalability, and architectural work the most.

I pride myself on being a business-minded developer. As a manager I have built talented teams from the ground up, and appreciate the importance of cost-conscious development. I take real joy in aligning product management with software development so that there are never any problems when it comes time to roll out.
