Sully Syed

I’m a software developer and management professional with more than fifteen years of experience on the Web platform (PHP, Ruby on Rails, Python, VB.NET, MySQL, MS SQL), a B. Sc. in Computer Science and a background in sales looks to exceed personal targets and help meet company goals. I offer outstanding programming expertise and a history of forming strong team partnerships.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

I'm currently the Director of Media Technology for the Canadian Football League, based out of CFL HQ in Toronto, Canada.

Before that, I was the manager of Web Development for Rogers Media in Toronto, Canada, and led / was a member of multiple small and medium-size software development teams for development shops based in Toronto and in decentralized, remote work teams.

My professional experience in software development began with Perl/PHP, Apache and MySQL in 2001 as a contractor to a privately held marketing firm.

After graduation in 2005 I began to work in ever-larger corporations, adding Java, Python, the .NET languages (VB.NET, C#) and Ruby on Rails in the years that followed.

While I hold expert-level qualifications in each of the languages mentioned, my career path is that of a generalist; I endeavour to be able to step into any development team and make immediate contributions.
