SEEKING WORK - remote or Toronto, Canada, can fly in for meetings

10 years as a software engineer. Worked in a startup as its CTO / systems architect / devops guy, in the financial / insurance industry as a senior engineer.

I currently do mostly Ruby on Rails on the JVM, Java, some Scala, some Python/Flask. I manage my deployments with Ansible, on CentOS and Ubuntu. Can rapidly pick up whatever is needed. I create scalable system architectures in the cloud. I do mostly back-end work but I end up solving my teams' front-end issues.

keywords: cloud, MySQL, AWS, Javascript, Java, Play Framework, Spring, Hibernate, HornetQ, Torquebox, ElasticSearch, Ruby, Rails, playing with Erlang and Vert.x, Python, Flask, Redis
