Neil Russell

Senior Software engineer


Neil enjoys solving problems in back-end systems with a focus on reliability and scaleability. He is passionate about customer satisfaction. Neil is not an ivory tower theorist, he needs to write code and understand the synergy that comes from writing the code and supporting the product. He enjoys the challenges involved in building new systems and learning the technologies to drive them. Neil was most recently at Staples Velocity Lab working on the mobile web platform and supporting the device applications with a highly optimized REST layer written for Node.js and using Mongo, Couchbase and Redis. He formerly worked on cloud virtualization products, big data acquisition and DHCP/DNS server systems, as well as cable modem provisioning and management systems, medical devices and semiconductor equipment.  Neil enjoys sailing during the summer months and woodworking projects when he has the time.
