About

Hi! I am Dmitry Frenkel, software engineer, architect and technologist based in Seattle. I’ve been applying logic to technology and software development since 1998 and so far I’ve enjoyed (almost) every minute of it.

My friends tell me that I am extremely attentive to details, that I am a workaholic and that my superpower is my patience.  That’s because I am proud of what I do and I believe in the right combination of “Do it right” and “Get it Done”.  I believe in building software for real people, in using science and technology to better our lives, and in doing it with excellence. I believe that work ethics, professionalism and mutual respect combined with passion for technology and a big dash of perfectionism is the right mix of ingredients for any software endeavor.

I am currently Software Development Manager at Amazon Web Services working on Identity and Access Management. Before AWS, I was Director of Software Development at Wetpaint, Seattle-based technology company and a social publishing pioneer with innovative platform that builds loyal audiences. Before Wetpaint, I’ve helped build Windows Azure Marketplace, Microsoft Experimentation Platform, and led development of Healthcare product lines for Perot Systems (now Dell).

You can find me on LinkedIn or follow me on Twitter.

Please pardon occasional misplaced articles, “woulds and shoulds, wills and shalls“. Feel free to let me know, though, if you notice something egregious that needs immediate correction!
