Jody Forness
We worked together  •  Senior Security Researcher, BAE Systems Applied Intelligence and Founder and Managing Director, Pens for Bartenders, LLC. NYU grad.
Randall is an exceptional computer scientist who is always looking for new problems to solve. He's fully capable of implementing his persona ... l and professional projects. His technical aptitude is through the roof, because he just keeps pushing himself to learn new things. Once he finds an interesting project, he executes with creativity, precision, and wisdom.
Sean Edward Finn

Tatyana Shchensek
We worked together  •  Software engineer, Peloton Cycle. Previously Web developer, LiveAuctioneers.
As a developer, Randall's combination of his talent and experience produced highly scalable code, effectively utilizing the object-oriented ... paradigm and built-in language constructs to optimize an application's performance. He was able both to hunt down an obscure logic bug and to architect a full solution stack, from the database layer to front-end JavaScript. As a CTO, he remained closely involved with the product by actively contributing code; balanced product and project management; and was mindful of individual developers' professional goals and aspirations. His management style blended firm leadership with attention to each developer's opinions and concerns.
Heewa Barfchin
We worked together  •  Previously Senior Software Engineer, Nomi. Previously Senior Software Engineer, Chartbeat.
Randal’s wide range of experiences shows through to his work. He dives into projects, and pulls them forward through obstacles and vaguene ... ss, in a way that only someone who’s been in much more serious situations would. He’s very strong in analytics and engineering, which is always a great combo, but managed by his project leadership strength, it’s even more powerful. Also he’s really great to work with, and everyone likes him, which isn’t a trivial thing during the kinds of stress startups put on us.
Anthony Brunetto
We worked together  •  Technical Manager, Apple.
Throughout my career working with Randall there has never been a task he's been involved with which hasn't resulted in astounding results. H ... is background and work experience is a perfect mix of deep engineering knowledge and practical business expertise.
Felix Zeygeril
We worked together  •  QA/DevOps Engineer, LiveAuctioneers.
I have known Randall Shane since we started working together at Oberon Media. Randall is one of the most dedicated professional. Randall is ... a reliable and ambitious goal oriented colleague, he also shared his knowledge and thought me other skills that I have benefit from. I have learned great deal from Randall how to work with EC2, Python and MongoDB. Few people have the opportunity to report to a manager who is also a coach and mentor—but I did when I worked for Randall.
Anthony Poston
We worked together  •  CEO & Founder, ESM Solutions, Inc. CEO & Founder, Which Winery, Inc. Looking for a CTO - Co-Founder for Which Winery in San Francisco
Randall is excellent to work with! He is extremely knowledgeable (especially in our space), and provides thought-provoking ideas and collabo ... rates on high-level strategies.
