I'm a software product manager who writes code as a hobby.

Currently, I'm VP Product at Cantaloupe Systems. We're the largest SaaS software provider for the vending industry.

At Cantaloupe Systems we put cellular modems inside vending machines, collect data about every sale as well as machine status and alerts, and then crunch the resulting data in our cloud services to help vending operators know which machines need to be refilled and when, what's selling and what's not, who's stealing, which machines are broken, and much more.

I lead a small team responsible for product roadmap, user experience, agile team coordination, and generally keeping the trains running on time.

We're hiring PMs!

comment Handling time zones in data mart/warehouse
@Zane - converting the range request to UTC only works for simple queries where the range is identical for the entire query. If your query includes entities in different timezones (e.g. "Yesterday's sales for every store" where each store is in a different timezone and you define "yesterday" in context of the store, not the client) then converting before querying won't work.
