Blockchain Startup Amberdata Welcomes Scott Bigelow To Executive Teambr>
Blockchain data and insights platform Amberdata has hired Scott Bigelow as Vice President of Engineering.
Bigelow has 20 years of experience in enterprise application development, with a recent focus on analytics, scalability, and blockchain architecture. His involvement with blockchain technology began in 2013 with bitcoin mining and library development and, since 2017, developing ethereum smart contracts, security audits, and dapp development.
Most recently, Scott helped build Augur, an ethereum-based decentralized protocol for prediction markets. And prior to Augur, he held a data engineering leadership role at New Relic, a real-time insights and application performance monitoring software company.
“I’m excited to bring my passion for blockchain development, analytics, and developer tooling to Amberdata,” said Bigelow. “With new complex production dapps being deployed, cross-chain communications coming online, and more advanced token standards gaining adoption, Amberdata is improving visibility and providing a platform which will be vital to the blockchain ecosystem.”
Shawn Douglass, CEO of Amberdata, said that Bigelow’s enterprise chops combined with his experience in building next generation decentralized application like Augur, makes him the perfect addition to their team.
“He marries the old world with the new,” Douglass said. “Scott brings a wealth of firsthand experience and institutional knowledge to Amberdata, and we’re excited to be able to deliver even more value to our customers with his help.”
