Talk 2: Scaling & Speed - Kiril Savino, CTO & Founder of Gamechanger Media
Kiril Savino has been doing startups on the East Coast since way before it was cool, and co-founded GameChanger Media with Ted Sullivan in 2008 to change the face of youth & amateur sports media. A self-taught technologist, his earliest startup experience was as the first engineer at Higher One (NYSE:ONE), building software that grew to process billions of dollars in transactions. He learned to scale by doing it, at Higher One, as a lead at DoubleClick (where traffic is measured in 10s of billions of impressions/day), as an engineer and later CTO of ShopWiki Corp (downloading & semantically processing 70+ million pages of unstructured HTML a day), and at GameChanger, turning 10s of thousands of baseball scorekeepers and hundreds of millions of events into a real-time media firehose.
