Banks Lake

I am a software engineer and engineering leader with a technical background in server, web, and mobile application development fielding over 15 years of experience. I collaborate with different teams’ needs to provide exceptional customer experience. While working with designers, products owners, vendors, executives, project managers, and others I endure to embrace cutting edge software, server, web, and mobile technologies keeping an eye on usability, security, and scalability. It’s fantastic to be able to bring rich, interactivity to millions of mobile and web users while also pushing the limits of those technologies.

From me you can expect to have engineered dependable software solutions with a proven track record of successful, well architected, and deployed applications as an individual engineer and/or as a lead or manager planning for and overseeing projects and teams, local and distributed at companies large or small.

Right now

I’m currently working as a Principal Group Engineering Manager at Microsoft in Prague, the Czech Republic having worked at Pokémon, Disney, ArenaNet, Amazon, and several Seattle area startups.
