I’m Richard Thornton
In recent years I have been the CTO and chief architect of a disruptive music streaming startup, the Software Engineering Manager and Senior Solutions Architect for a cutting-edge AgTech IoT product and have devoted myself to designing and building scalable, resilient solutions using Amazon Web Services.
From migrating large databases, building data lakes to creating real-time data visualisation dashboards, I can help from planning to building your solution.
I have experience building and deploying load-balanced, scalable applications and can review existing platform architecture to identify and plan optimisations.
I have built systems being used to deliver millions of dollars of investments and to stream music into business across Australia. I build solutions, or build teams to deliver them.
Starting a business? Registering a domain name, configuring email… It’s confusing and I can help. I offer web hosting and I’ll work with your designer to build your website too.
I am often involved in design processes, have managed successful UX design teams and workflows and have been involved in company rebranding exercises.
I have a passion for fostering diverse and talented teams. I have experience reviewing cultural and behaviour and have worked to remove bias from policies and process.
