How long have you been with CX? 1 year, 2 months.
What is your typical day like? Most of my work is on the back-end server code and architecture for CX, but I do a little bit of everything. Depending on where we are with specific business objectives, I can be doing everything from helping to define the road map, managing the servers, writing code, or working with third parties.
Why does working in the cloud sharing field interest you? Cloud sharing is making people’s lives easier by making data access more convenient and universal. Some of the most interesting problems are around how to scale, with questions such as:
-How do we scale the server infrastructure to support millions of users?
-How do we scale user interaction so that as users and the volume of data grows, our product is still interesting, usable and relevant?
-How do we scale our customer base?
What do you use CX for? I use it for keeping in sync with the design and marketing side of the company and to share data easily between my own computers.
What’s your favorite part about working at CX? We have an amazing team of smart, creative people.
What’s your favorite food? I’m kind of a “foodie.” I really like delicious, high-quality food. But if I had to pick one thing, I’d pick sushi.
What’s your favorite band or musician? Beats Antique. They’re kind of an electronic tribal fusion group, and they put on an amazing concert.
What’s your favorite movie? It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I really love The Fifth Element.
What are three of your favorite websites to visit, and why do you visit each one? Hacker News: I read this for start-up news and because a lot of the content is very interesting. Reddit: I don’t spend too much time on the main Reddit, but there are a number of specific sub-Reddit’s I frequent. Gizmodo: Gizmodo provides a nice aggregation of tech news, blog posts, and other random stuff.
What’s something people would be surprised to learn about you? I help run an entrepreneurship network for students, alumni and professionals called Dragon Curve. We are building a strong network with people who are authentic, interesting and want to help other entrepreneurs succeed.
