James Williams


I am battled tested head of technology with many successes under my belt. I am an expert at building practical and scalable software that meets the demands of real world customers. My passion is building impactful software that people use.

As CTO of Teletrac, I manage operations on two continents for both software and hardware. In the past year, we've built a business intelligence platform in the cloud, completely revamped our .NET flagship product and successfully launched 4 revisions of our in-vehicle platform.

I've worked on many projects including 9 start-ups and a couple of fortune 500 companies. As a result I have a unique ability to manage multi-disciplinary projects and to navigate complex challenges. My experience has taught me the following very basic concepts:

-I simply want to win. If engineering was basketball and we were down by 20 points, I'll shoot the 21 point shot

-Academics don't matter. All engineers know that stuff, what matters is delivery!

-I was born to handle chaos

-I am exceptionally good at translating between geek and English

-I stay hands-on as my life's mission because I absolutely love developing software

My last words on earth might just be a few lines of code.

var http = require('http');

var server = http.createServer(function (request, response) {
response.writeHead(200, {"Content-Type": "text/plain"});
response.end("Good-bye World\n");
