Featured Placement – Dan Ellenbaum

Insight Architect – Systems Integration and Data Management

This formidable technology provider enlisted the assistance of Redfish Technology to find and recruit an Insight Architect to work with clients delivering world-class enterprise-wide solutions and services. The company works side-by-side with clients throughout the program lifecycle, from the vision and justification phase to the design, development and implementation phases to help them achieve technology goals and business objectives through effective IT strategy. This privately-held, profitable company has an impressive client list ranging from government to healthcare to the private sector. The VP of Engineering needed someone with a unique background: experienced in database and technical scripting, with great communication and leadership skills, and client facing.

Redfish recruited Dan Ellenbaum in particular for his seven years of client facing experience in a dual Software Engineering and Project Management role. Dan has team leadership experience and a penchant for training; and he is extremely bright and motivated. Dan’s University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign education was in General Engineering, focus in Computer Science; and his technical specialties include Perl, Ruby, C#.NET, VB.NET, VBA, Javascript, C, C++, shell scripts, SQL, T-SQL, mySQL, and SQL Server. He is familiar with the entire Software Lifecycle, both at large corporations (SEI CMMI Level 5) and small start-ups (Extreme Programming).

“I’ve worked with many recruiters over the years, but not only did Logan Knight get me a great new position, he helped me discover a whole new direction for my career as a Software Engineer! He was with me every step of the way, from going over job postings, to helping me prep for interviews. He even contacted me — after — my start date to see how the new job was going! I recommend Redfish Technology to all my friends. In a world of too many recruiters just doing a keyword search and wanting you to take a job, any job, Logan Knight and Redfish are the exception. Six months and counting in my new position, thank you!” — Dan Ellenbaum
