About Colby Palmer
Colby Palmer is a Web technologist, entrepreneur and full-stack developer who lives in Santa Monica, CA. Once he started writing about himself in the third person, but then I changed my mind.
I am a CTO who is good at leading technology teams. Familiarity with all parts of a platform stack give me a unique ability to see how all the pieces fit together and communicate between teams. I’m an engaged project manager with a good sense of UX best practices and business value. My style is hands-on, agile, yet laid-back... and I’ll admit, occasionally a little cowboy. (I’m not afraid to disregard convention here and there. Yee-haw!)
What I Do
- Technology team leadership and developer process tuning
- Platform architecture and content management systems
- E-commerce / marketplace / subscription payment platforms
- Django/Python application development
- HTML5/CSS3 responsive web design
- Interface design / UX / product development
- High-availability cloud server configurations
- Page scraping, Web bots, video/audio/text chat, search backends, etc…
