Founder of something new; previously, founder & CTO of @BetDash (acquired by @PaddyPower)
Experience testing and validating startup concepts from BetDash. Frequent advisor to entrepreneurs.
I worked with Rob during his time with Paddy Power hiring a number of Ruby on Rails developers into his team to continue to build his BetDash.com product and can recommend him as an excellent technical leader, people manager and developer.
Finding the right talent is a much easier task when your hiring manger can clearly describe the type of engineer that they'd like to hire and Rob did this particularly well. The product was his own and he got his message and passion across to candidates which resulted in making some strong hires in what is a very competitive market.
I wish Rob all the best with his next project and would welcome the opportunity to work with him again.
For last couple of years I've had great pleasure working with Robert on BETDASH.COM product within Paddy Power.
His excellent project management and agile development skills helped us to design, implement and launch the site within just couple of months.
His attention to detail and drive for improvement ensured that the product was constantly improved upon ensuring the best customer experience delivery.
Robert will be deeply missed in Paddy Power and I'm hoping to have a chance to work with him again in future.
I can't say enough about the competence and professionalism that Robert possess. More than his technical talents, Robert is an excellent networker and generous connector once you are inside of his network.
My experience is that Robert is always in demand so if you want to earn his time, you should be clear of the value you bring to the table and how this opportunity best uses his skills. If you can achieve that, he has the passion and the ability to take your project to the next level. Thanks for everything Robert.
Mr. Shedd worked above and beyond expectations in support of a corporate/institutional technology pilot that continues to illustrate for others how a can-do attitude creates significant value in a educational team setting. Problems present opportunities to people like Robert. I appreciated having his expertise and continue to value his efforts.
I had the pleasure of spending time with Robert and his Three Screens / FanGamb team during the summer of 2009. Robert is extremely focused, tenacious, and hard working to make sure that the products he builds deliver against company goals and objectives. As well, he is very good at iterating quickly based on the "evidence" he sees during in-market use and testing. It was great to see that Robert can work in both a "big company environment" such as the former company he worked for, as well as the more unstructured environment of entrepreneurship.
