I'm a Director of Engineering at Engine Yard - which would put me at level 5 on the CTO-membership scale. (Level 2 Career, Level 3 Company.) I set up, and now run, the Portland engineering office. Earlier this year, I also took on responsibility for Engine Yard's largest product (EY Cloud) and product direction. This is my first management role. I have been pleasantly surprised at how deeply fulfilling building a team is.
I'm a Rubyist, have spent fifteen years working in technology, and last year finally made a foray into management (of people and of technology).
