Warren is one of the most talented engineers I have worked with in my 8 years of website project management. He architected several complex back end systems to support a global platform for a billion dollar corporation. He is also a great teacher. In addition to his expertise and capabilities, Warren is a pleasure to work with. He collaborates seamlessly with business, creative, and production stakeholders. I would love to work with Warren again!Alexandra Joachim -- Director, eCommerce Production - Feature Development at The Estée Lauder Companies Inc.
Brilliant and dependable are two traits that comes to mind when I think about Warren. Warren and I have collaborated on a number of projects throughout the 8 years that we have worked together. He has always impressed me with his commitment to the team and his overall attitude towards the work at hand.
Warren has consistently demonstrated an unparalleled determination to get the job done. Even under duress Warren had been able to be innovative in his technical solutions while remaining customer focused. Warren is one of the top people I have met and worked with in my career. I whole heartily recommend Warren and would only be too happy to work with him again.Leslie Wong -- Executive Director, Global Platform & Feature Development at Estee Lauder Companies Online
I had the pleasure of working with Warren for over 6 years at Double Prime/SPI. Throughout my time with Warren, he was promoted from engineer, to lead to manager while maintaining a strong, grounded personality and approach to his work, co-workers and direct reports. I was also incredibly impressed with Warren’s relationship with our clients. I would swear, most of them would gladly and excitedly invite him over for dinner after work.
I would say one of the the keys to Warren’s success was keeping a firm grasp on technology – new trends, updates in best practices, etc – and being relatable to both clients and co-workers.
Over the 6 years I worked with Warren, he has never shied away from hard work, tough assignments or new challenges. He knows how to assess situations accurately, and handle them with the technical and personal skills required to deliver and make the client happy.
If you are looking for a dedicated, strong, technical resource who you can rely on through thick and thin, you would be remiss not to consider Warren Ryd.Michael Tarquinio -- VP, Practice Lead of Ecommerce at SPI - Software Paradigms International
Warren and I have been coworkers for several years working with Estee Lauder. Warren is incredibly detail-oriented, well-spoken, and understands how to get projects accomplished with minimal resources in tight deadlines. During our time together, Warren has worked on several high-profile projects, managed teams of engineers, given technical talks within his area of expertise, and communicated engineering requirements with project managers. Fortunately for Warren, not only does he have the ability to work hard under pressure, he understands the fine balance on how to communicate complicated technical plans and progress to non-technical people. I highly recommend Warren to anyone, no matter how large or small the project or how complicated it may be. Warren will definitely be an asset to any team.Anthony Lorenzo -- Software Architect at The Estée Lauder Companies Inc.
Warren is an exceptional developer and an incredible person. It is so rare to find both: knowledge and personality.Yuliya Novak -- Executive Director, Global E-commerce Operations at Esteé Lauder
If there was a ‘fire’ and no one was able to figure out the problem or it was taking too long, we called Warren. Outstanding problem-solving and critical thinking skills, leadership, ability to work under pressure and meet tight deadlines, made Warren one of our top developers.
I had a pleasure to work with Warren for 8 years. Hope in the future we will have a chance to work together again.
Warren, quite simply, was one of the best engineers and managers I’ve had the pleasure of working with in my nearly decade and a half of software engineer/web development experience. As an engineer, Warren’s smarts, easily among the most formidable at the company, were such an asset on any call. And his aplomb, which he demonstrated with those under him, his peers, clients/owners/non-technical folk, had no superior. I really have no shortage of great things to say about his engineering ability, or his deft, solid leadership. Moreover, as my manager, he went above and beyond to help me grow, even in non-technical aspects of the job, like client communication. To reiterate… as positive an experience as I’ve yet had working in the software/web development industry.Paul Bruno -- Front-end/Full Stack Developer at SPI and other entrepreneurial enterprises
