Matt has spent the last decade building startups and engineering teams from zero to 50 engineers, and finds as much joy in hands on coding as in leading teams. He programs in a variety of languages, and regularly works with a variety of databases and distributed computing tools. His background includes over a decade of big data and applied statistics, but he has also learned to love browser side coding in recent years. His passion for Lean Startup methods and Agile development techniques comes from hard earned experience across industries including early web analytics and data warehousing, search, music recommendation, Internet advertising, and local search.
