Matthew McNeely is the VP of Engineering for Sprout. Matthew has been writing software in one form or another since the Reagan era. At Sprout his focus has been on Sprout's internal architecture and its interaction with various ad networks, interaction tracking services, and distribution networks. Prior to co-authoring the original Sprout platform, Matthew was the principal of Boston Bit—a software consulting company that specialized in internet-based development. He was also a Software Engineer at ON Technology, Recital Corporation and Unisys. When he's not laying down Actionscript code, you might find Matthew getting his hands dirty in his garden, riding or occasionally racing his bike, or playing the three chords he knows really well on his guitar. Matthew studied at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and Northeastern University.
