👋 I'm Steven. I'm an Engineering Manager at Slack and I have a deep interest in engineering, design, and the intersection of the two. This interest manifests itself in an obsession with building high-performing teams and high performance cars. 🇹🇼 🇺🇸 🏁
After early startup life there was only one company I wanted to work for. I had seen Slack transform our Engineering organization (and beyond) at LOYAL3 and I was thrilled to execute on a mission to make people's working lives simpler, more pleasant, and more productive. I lead our Developer Platform Services team where we own the quality, consistency, and security of our developer APIs while also overseeing our Platform Mobile Engineering efforts.
At LOYAL3, we created a fee-free brokerage platform that also allowed the general public to have access to IPOs at initial offering prices. We launched the likes of Square, Virgin America, GoPro, and AMC Theaters on our platform. I managed the teams responsible for developing trading, IPO reservation and share allocation, and account management interfaces for our users.
Growing up in NASCAR country, I counted Dale Earnhardt Sr., Rusty Wallace, and Cole Trickle as my childhood heroes. You can find me on the racetracks of Northern California in my track-prepped '99 Miata (or my E90M ZCP when the Miata is out of order).
