Director of Client Engineering – Timelines: Career

eMusic, a music subscription startup, was the first digital retailer to sell DRM-free downloadable audiobooks in the MP3 format. eMusic’s store has more than 12 million tracks supporting 50M users and 800k daily downloads.

Joined this start up to rebuild their customer tools to integrate and download the eMusic catalog and then moved into managing the developer integration with custom API interfaces.  I was a hands-on developer and managed all aspects of cross-platform (Microsoft, Mac, Linux) desktop software design, programming, and implementation from initial design concept and budgeting to final delivery and upgrades for this leading internet music provider.  After creating two versions of the desktop software I moved to coordinating external developer REST API interfaces, creating and managing documentation, and was instrumental in assisting business development and developer relations.  Oversaw teams of multi-discipline professionals in technical support, product release, customer service, internal database/desktop coding, and ongoing feedback.
