Ryan Verner +61 418 186 604 /

Location: Melbourne, Australia

Seeking opportunities to work on interesting things. I've been CTO in a medium size MSP the past 2.5 years mentoring staff and implementing new technologies but am leaving end of this month. Many varied skills (technical skills include Linux/ISP-centric sysadmin+automation with some Django/Python - have Windows skills too but looking to move forward using FOSS platforms) but having ran businesses over the past ~15 years I've had to wear many many different hats including non-technical positions (financial management, sales, etc). I enjoy leading highly technical teams, but equally would enjoy expanding my technical skills working within an existing team. I'm currently managing the LCA2015 AV team, but should have some time to chat - shoot me an email (phone number above is my Australian mobile, currently not on roaming, but return to AU on 18th).
