Alex Bekker's Summary

As a full-time technology junkie, I’m happiest when working on delivering complex and scalable SaaS solutions, building and mentoring scrappy in-house and offshore engineering teams, and shipping things that work.

I love getting my hands dirty with software architecting, formulating engineering and operations strategy, and making sense of ambiguity.

~ mobile app architecture/infrastructure
~ engineering management and team building

Founder and CEO

Davai Design

November 2003December 2009 (6 years 2 months) Montreal, Canada Area

We provided LAMP custom development services to academic institutions, government agencies, and small businesses. The company specialized in information systems development, business intelligence integration, and custom e-commerce solutions. Over 75% of our business was from publicly funded projects, which dried up due to the economic crisis.

I was mostly focused on client acquisition, architecture design, infrastructure planning, and management of development teams in Montreal, New Delhi – India, and Kiev – Ukraine.

Aside from contract work, we released a number of in-house products, all of which either failed spectacularly or were bought out for immaterial sums. Awesome learning all around!
