Tony Sandoval - VP Mobile Applications
A die-hard developer who has developed large scale systems such as Adecco.com’s first Chinese Language Job Board and www.GreyGoose.com’s global CMS, TONY SANDOVAL is constantly working on his craft. His current passion is bringing the power of large-scale back end technology to the palm of your hand on such devices as the iPhone and iPad.
Tony Sandoval started his career organically more than 15 years ago while working on his hobby, programming. While working as an attorney, it became obvious that he was a much better developer than a lawyer. At the start of the dot-com revolution, he made an easy switch to programming. Through his business world knowledge and experience, Tony was quickly able to take real world business requirements and find an online solution for it. He eventually rose to become the Regional Technology Director for Adecco, North East Asia. After running a Technology Department for a few years, Tony decided to go back to building things again by taking on the construction of www.GreyGoose.com’s global CMS and front end which eventually lead to building custom iPhone apps for the likes of Taylor Swift and working on animated content for mobile devices.
Tony Sandoval now focuses on marrying the power of cloud computing with the ubiquity, accessibility and ease of mobile devices.
