Rich Snapp

Staff Software Engineer

Skilled software engineer with significant professional experience most recently focused in ad tech and open-source platforms that compete with the major advertising incumbents (Google, et al) including building open source libraries used by hundreds of advertising companies and internally building scalable and high-performance systems that facilitate real-time ad auctions. Strong familiarity with open-source technology stacks across the frontend and backend and experience with CI/CD, caching, data storage, load balancing, server administration, and cloud-based infrastructure (mostly GCP, but some AWS). Life-long learner and web technologist that started with TI-basic and assembly language on a calculator in middle school, released an open-source message board system on the early internet using Javascript and Perl in high school, and have continued to follow the latest frontier technologies throughout my career. Currently focusing on AI and compute infrastructure in my spare time. Key skills include:
