Dan Cox

Head of Engineering, Yahoo Finance at Yahoo

An experienced software leader with over 20 years of experience in start-ups, larger companies (Amazon + Verizon Media). I began my career as an engineer (and still code for fun) and over time became a technical leader and people leader while heading up projects for software used by millions of people each day. I have simple philosophies on software development and people management that have helped me succeed in both the start-up world as well as larger companies: - "A good plan, violently executed now, is better than a perfect plan next week." - Patton - "Don't fail fast, learn fast. If you assume you will fail, then you are approaching it wrong" - Transparency & Clear Communication are vital to excelling in any leadership role. I have focused the majority of my career on mobile application development and web services. I have lead teams that scaled web services from 1 request per second to 10000 requests per second, and I have lead team that launched Amazon's first consumer desktop application. I believe you are only as strong as the team you work with and consequently I have spent a significant amount of time interviewing candidates and educating others how to interview candidates for technical positions.
