The Hut Group
For the talk I was considering quick treatment of three topics:
- How an e-commerce platform evolves architecturally as scale grows.
- Computing product recommendations.
- Improving warehouse efficiency with better algorithms.
Short bio: I began my career on Wall Street building trading and financial analytic systems in C++. I left that world after several years to join Amazon.com, working in areas including order processing and, after moving to England, product catalogue production. Since then I led engineering organizations for Gumtree and Last.fm before returning to e-commerce at THG where I have had several roles in the technology organisation.
