    AVP Senior Principal Solutions Engineer and Head of Solutions Engineering

    As the head of solutions engineering I lead and mentor a team of engineers that work on large multi-discipline infrastructure projects to deliver across engineering. Our team are the architects that glue together the disparate technologies across engineering ensuring that each group considers the other. As an individual contributor I work on large projects leading all of engineering to ensure that the final solution considers all of the possibilities available to us across the breadth of technologies we use. This is a solutions architect role that often also includes heavy involvement with delivery. These projects cover a number of areas such as M & A work, data center migrations, confidential vendor engagements, large platform changes, etc. My job is to lead engineering and speak for the entire organization when one voice is needed.
