About Jason Primeau

📖 Summary

My first task at OANDA was to put together my desk and computer. My next task was to complete the user interface for OANDA's flagship forex trading platform. In subsequent years, I designed and implemented several other interfaces and servers, and over one trillion dollars has flowed through software that I have written. I have been a key player in growing OANDA's 5 person development team more than tenfold into one that is capable of deploying over 100 releases a week to a production environment where billions of dollars are traded every day. I'm passionate about building teams, and identifying leadership potential in other developers and helping them excel in their roles. I am responsible for aligning the overall business and strategic goals of the company with the most current trends in technology and development. OANDA is a respected player in the four-trillion dollar a day spot forex market. Keeping up with a market of that size requires best-in-class technology and developers, and I've been in the unique position of leading a grass-roots development team to become one praised by Wired Magazine as one of the top ten places to work outside of Silicon Valley. Having gone through the trials and tribulations of implementing development best practices, methodologies, and strategies where none previously existed, I have an in-depth understanding of what makes (or breaks) development teams.Director of Development @ • Accountable for the overall management, productivity, and quality of OANDA's software development team, which is responsible for building systems that execute billions of dollars in trades per day. • Responsible for growing from a staff of 20 developers to a team of 70, capable of deploying over 100 releases a week. • Work closely with the VP Engineering to prioritize top revenue-generating projects. • Act as liaison between marketing, product management, project management, and senior management teams. • Promote important strategic technology initiatives to senior management. • Evangelized an outreach program to attend and sponsor key events for recruiting, partnership, product promotion, and staff development. • Conceived and executed a university co-op recruiting initiative. • Technical Leadership Panelist: Challenges of Growing a Dev Organization From July 2008 to Present (7 years 6 months) Toronto, Canada AreaTeam Lead @ • Mentored and grew the UI team for the flagship fxTrade currency trading platform from one to 10 developers.
