I've been a team leader for startups in Silicon Valley for the past 8 years, working primarily using Ruby on Rails.
I led the first 3 years of development at Get Satisfaction.
I led the web team at OpenFeint that scaled from 5 million users when I joined to over 200 million when I left
Along the way I've helped teach many younger or less experienced engineers solid practical skills about judging their work, ensuring quality and writing maintainable code. I've helped client developers learn the skills they need to better integrate their code with APIs and understand basic web technology.
