About Me

Hands on leader, developer, architect specializing in the design and delivery of distributed systems in lean, agile environments with an emphasis in continuous improvement across people, process and technology. Speaker and published author with 18 years' experience leading the delivery of large and/or complex, high-impact distributed solutions in Retail,  Intelligent Transportation, and Gaming & Hospitality.

I'm currently a Principal Engineer at Amazon, within the North America Consumer organization leading our global listings strategy that enable bulk and non-bulk listing experiences for our WW Selling Partners via apps, devices and APIs.

At Amazon, I start with our customers and work backwards to deliver simple and intuitive experiences via web, mobile, devices and APIs that enable our Selling Partners to contribute to earth's largest selection on Amazon Online Stores and Alexa devices WW. I've led and/or contributed to various toolchains on Amazon Seller Central and Amazon MWS including Complete Your Drafts, several front-end and back-end features, enhancements for the MWS Feed and Report APIs and dozens of internal/confidential distributed systems projects constrained by scale, latency, and throughput requirements including streaming, microservices, and various AWS capabilities. 

Prior to Amazon, I was VP and Distinguished Engineer at Neudesic, responsible for leading 8 practice areas within the Development Platform Group and owned the Engineering Excellence program for over 400 field engineers. I also started the company's IoT practice, and was responsible for the architecture, design and delivery of dozens of large and complex projects including the first fully integrated real-time messaging system for Electronic Gaming Machines, Point-of-Sale, Reservations and Box Office for properties in Las Vegas and New York; the first distributed screening system for the US DOT and the expansion of the first automated parking system from San Francisco to Phoenix including 1,700 street meters and sensors integrated with Microsoft Azure; and was the architect and lead for PrePass Gates, the first autonomous gate operations offering for the commercial transportation industry. I also partnered with Microsoft and Neudesic Product leadership to design, implement, document and deliver the the first Neuron ESB Adapter for Microsoft Azure Service Bus enabling hybrid messaging via queues and topics within the product.

Before Neudesic, I was an Architect at ESS where I led integration efforts within the Essential Suite product line via web services and environmental sensors and devices. I was the technical lead at DriveTime where I was the architect for the company's' first service-oriented mobile workflow solution for vehicle inbounding. I contributed to and led several projects at JP Morgan Chase within the Credit Card BI and Home and Auto Collections teams including the first collection tools portal built on Microsoft .NET in 2002.
 
I'm a passionate community advocate and former 9x Microsoft MVP (2006-2015). Presentations include talks at Channel9, MSDN AzureConf, Visual Studio Live!, That Conference! and Desert Code Camp, as well as published works including co-author of  AppFabric Cookbook, Microsoft whitepapers, frequent contributions to CODE Magazine and my personal blog: http://rickgaribay.net.

Passions: System architecture, distributed systems design, object and component oriented design, microservices, domain-driven-development, agile, lean, teaching, mentoring, speaking, writing.
