ipDatatel LLC (since 2013)
Senior developer / Technical director
ipDatatel is one of the leading companies in the security systems communication and integrated home automation sector. The team develops, designs and manufactures the hardware, and develops all the software that supports every product and service. The phenomenal company growth has enabled the company to be included in the Inc.500 list in 2014. It’s been also recognized as one of the best places to work in the Houston area.
The team at the company is a very experienced, multidisciplinary team. During my initial period as senior developer, I developed from scratch a scalable key-value store (implementing features such as consistent hashing, quorum consensus, self monitoring and auto-testing), an embedded stack to control Z-Wave devices (bare metal in PIC32) and rewrote an iOS application to control security and home automation devices.
Later on, as the technical director, reporting to the CEO and as part of the executive team, my activities became substantially different, focusing on the hardware design and manufacturing supply chain, software and systems architecture, technical team leading (including new hires) and product development.
