Levi leads an engaged team of engineers that develop and deploy scalable, performant, highly available, secure, and frugal web services that power EatStreet on AWS. He regularly mentors and educates junior to senior engineers on technical skills and personal project management. Levi is an effective communicator who raises the bar for lasting cross-team change in organization, software development, deployment, business operations, and security as a business and secured web applications. His leadership has reduced oncall incidents and their impact by 90%, enabled autonomy of multiple teams, and has instilled leadership and responsibility in engineers that report to him. For matters of security and data privacy, he is the go-to expert in designing, reviewing compliance efforts and cryptography.
