Experience

Imgur

Full Stack Engineer   March 2013 - Present
Yes, I work at the Internet and Imgur's entire stack. I've worked on some cool projects: image analytics, Imgur search, gifv, and can't wait for the next challenge.

OCLC

Sofware Engineer   September 2010 - March 2013
I worked on OCLC's full text search engine, written in C, that powers all of its products. I added new features, fixed bugs, and provided production support. Then I worked on a migration project to move OCLC away from Oracle and into HBase. I implemented MapReduce jobs, and created tools to monitor and manage our Hadoop stack. We open-sourced some of those tools.
