Russell Builds Products

Russell Ballestrini admires readable and testable code and thoroughly enjoys the process of refactoring. He enjoys finding simple solutions to difficult problems and reveres the python language.

Russell currently holds a position at Mobiquity as a senior system engineer where he manages infrastructure running in AWS.

Russell keeps busy by turning ideas into products, spends his spare time writing open source software, and running the company that he founded called LinkPeek. He is also actively bootstrapping a comments-as-a-service offering called Remarkbox.

If you read all that, you should likely contact Russell, and fear not because he always responds in a timely manner.
