Double Down Interactive, Technical Project Manager
December 2012 - Present, Seattle, WA, United States
As my former employer grew I began to miss the implementation and execution of the new process and began looking for a company that was in a similar spot when I started back in 2007. A mid sized Dev shop that wanted to implement SCRUM. After living through the transition process for the last 5 years I felt that I could be a valuable asset to such a company. I have been with DoubleDown for about 2 months now and I love the vision of what this company can be and how I can help shape it. I'm currently filling the role of Tech Project Manager for an internal tools team and will soon be adding another Dev team to PM. I am really enjoying presenting the SCRUM process to a willing audience.
Groundspeak, Project Manager/Scrum Master
August 2007 - November 2012, Seattle, WA, United States
Implemented Scrum methodology to existing Development Team. As the company grew and more teams were added I filled the role of Scrum Master for those teams as well (max 4 teams). I brought in the still existing policies and procedures around Scrum and software development. As the teams became more proficient I moved more to a role of Product Manager - taking the input from the company owners and breaking the ideas down to sprint sized stories. I also focused on re-establishing the multi-team standards for estimation of work and helped on-board new developers to our process.
