Who am I?

My name is Andy Wegner.

I lead, grow and mentor engineering teams in many industries. I've worked as VP of Software Engineering at a telecommunications company, Director of Engineering at a transportation logistics company and at a company working to improve the hiring process for engineers. I've been an individual contributor at a large manuafacturing company. I've built global teams of engineers and delivered solutions that impact customers worldwide. I've personally built software that covers much every aspect of a product's lifecycle in multiple industries.

I was the community owner of Team Vipers for 5 years. Vipers was a gaming community, focused mainly around Team Fortress 2, but we dabbled in other games for brief periods of time. I helped the community prosper. I also built a lot of software to help me in managing the community.

I am an elected Moderator on Stack Overflow and participate across the rest of the Stack Exchange network. I moderate Community Building and Hardware Recommendations as well. I've also built a few tools to help keep the low quality content off the Stack Exchange network.
