About Me

I’m Doug Sherk, a software engineer in Toronto. I’m the rare breed of developer who loves both technology and business + working with people. I’ve built software for over 10 years.

Resume

Right now, I’m doing technical consulting, looking for an engineering job at a startup, and applying for masters in CS programs.

I used to work at Mozilla, where I was at various times a tech lead and a product manager. I also worked at Zynga just before they IPO’d and were at their (arguably) peak valuation.

You can contact me at doug (at) sherk (dot) me.
