Hello, I'm Chad Edge
I'm a manager of engineering living in Los Angeles, CA

Since 1997 I've provided assistance, programming and advice to many companies in the capacity of a software developer, project lead, systems analyst and manager.
My work has contributed to awards, market increase and continuing value long after my departure.

I’m certainly “adapt process that works” over strict Agile, a stickler for clear requirements and “stories” and an avid “make it reusable” junkie.

If delivering top projects, on time and exceeding goals are factors you’re looking for, we should talk.

Currently: 85% project and team management, 15% project development.
It has taken some time to grow into the leadership position I’ve hoped to hold, my desire and ambition to mold initiatives and manifest vision for a technical team has finally come to fruition.
As the manager of an engineering team within CBS Interactive (CBSi), I have the responsibility to mentor my developers, protect them from interruption and foster an environment of productivity and measurable success.
My team develops within several disciplines and frameworks (PHP, Perl, MySQL, Postgres, API’s and even bleeding edge Drupal 8). We create broad solutions and profitable results for our first-class clients (syndicated National broadcast television shows).

When not developing, I enjoy stand-up comedy and traveling back to my home of Seattle, Washington. I’m not the stereotypic “coffee snob” but it’s very rare to see me without a cup of coffee in my hand.


Professional Services

I am the manger of engineering for a dynamic, global media and broadcast company. While I am still quite capable of getting my hands dirty with many platforms and languages, I'm best suited for solving those hard to manage problems and tasks that seem to always pop-up.

I have written the software development lifecycle guide for a previous employer, been ScrumMaster certified more times than I can count, and will spring up usable solutions in my spare time just to make life easier.

Get in touch

I'm not currently looking for new opportunities - my current employer presents the type of workplace and drive that one could make a career from. That said, I'm always up to entertain a conversation (especially if coffee is involved).

Use the methods at the top to get in touch and I'll reply as I'm available. Otherwise, keep an eye on this space for more updates and detail.
