I am the CEO of Made Up Name (yes, that’s our real name). We’re a software development and staffing firm in sunny southern California. Here is a shameless plug:

For funded startups and ecommerce companies, we gleefully craft quality web and mobile software for companies who sell or market online, enabling you to maximize your investment.

For mature startups through enterprises in need of on-site IT talent (including management), we offer premier technical recruiting and contracting services. You will find that using a software development firm to staff your company results in exceptional candidates, as we understand their abilities and your needs like only a deeply technical person can. Let us earn your trust as we have theirs.

Some background on yours truly:

  • I started programming at age 12 and since then have learned 15 different programming languages. I also picked up a degree in CS from RPI, where they taught us to pronounce COBOL with the same tone you’d use for Voldemort.
  • I’ve held many different positions, often simultaneously: software developer (GUI, systems, web application), system administrator at a high performance computing and data center, technical lead, software architect, project manager, engagement manager, startup cofounder, and probably a few others I’m forgetting. Oh yeah, CEO.
  • In 2013 I embarked on a ’round the world trip while working on a startup to provide BI and analytics dashboards for internet retailers. That SaaS offering is currently on hold as we focus on clients, but it makes for a great base for similar projects.

If you think I can help you in any way and you’re located somewhere in southern California, I’d love to grab a meal or coffee to discuss it with you, so contact me. More than once I’ve been able to solve a nagging business problem over lunch and I’m always happy to be of service.

You can find out more on LinkedIn. However, if we’ve never had a conversation, please start one before adding me there.
