Director, Software Engineering - Cobalt Labs

6/12 to 4/14 Director, Software Engineering – Cobalt Labs

Became a full-time employee of this company after consulting for about 6 months. Started and lead the software department (both of us!). Helped design and implement the line of IPTV boxes which use XBMC and the QT Browser for an enhanced user experience. Helped architect the first product line. Brought up the first working hardware and software to a stage we could demonstrate. Wrote the first user manual and hired and supervised the consultant(s) to perfect the user manual. Created the manufacturing test plan, and worked with our manufacturer on the test fixtures. Company funding expired in 3/2013 even though the product was ready for beta test. Worked through 4/14 on a part time basis to try to keep the company going.
