Management: Product strategy, feature definition, staffing, product roadmaps, internal and external presentations, and inter-disciplinary team efficiency and results.
Bennett Barouch has experience from software engineer to VP of Engineering at several startup companies, and in established, larger companies, spanning the domains of circuit design automation, compiler technology, secure networking, business systems, consumer financial software, and Siri-like consumer software, high transaction volume and big data systems. His customers have ranged from individual retail consumers to some of the largest companies in the world.
Work under Bennett’s leadership produced a “virtual assistant” (like Siri) that could understand 20 million English phrases and respond with a wide array of information and complete computer-telephony integration. This work was made part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution, for Outstanding Achievement in Information Technology 14 years before Apple released Siri, and became the basis of the OnStar virtual assistant found in GM automobiles.
Bennett has been certified in ITIL, and as a Scrum Master and as a Scrum Product Manager, as well as being an experienced hands-on engineer and leader.
