Brian Taylor - Software Architect & Java/Rust Developer

Architecture - the design decisions required to obtain stakeholder consensus.

Proven ability to successfully lead complex software-intensive system design direction through consensus in high-growth companies from bootstrapped startups to global enterprises. Skilled in architecture for organizations in commerce, financial services, healthcare, retail, advertising, defense, and security.

Specializing in distributed/ decentralized computing, scalability, security, and real-time analytics.

As a Software Architect, I collaborate with stakeholders, colleagues, vendors, business and technical subject matter experts on high risk issues driving to architectural designs and transition plans that meet stakeholders' expectations through mediation while addressing their concerns through proof-of-concepts and prototyping using an agile methodology for rapid resolution to obtain overall consensus.

As a Java/Rust Developer, I aim for a highly-maintainable idiomatic (Rust | Java) codebase with the least amount of code, structure, and advanced features keeping it as simple as possible while following and preferring to work within a code-of-conduct similar to Rust's.
