I am Drew Engelson.

I lead an engineering team at Starbucks that powers our best-in-class loyalty program (Starbucks Rewards) and mobile-ordering service. We are building the Starbucks PaaS to allow digital platforms to be deployed globally with a focus on automation, scalability, performance, security, and developer experience.

Prior to Starbucks, I led Celerity's Technology Innovation and Architecture practice, founded Zoombit, and served in technology leadership at Huge and PBS.

My experience also includes analytics, quality assurance (QA), search engine optimization (SEO), content management systems (CMS), and streaming content delivery, including a focus on digital media and technical systems integration.

I reside in the Seattle, WA area with my wife and two daughters.

Yes. I seriously hate tomatoes.
