Samuel Goldstein, VP Technology and Principal

Before co-founding 1969 Communications, I was Vice President of Technology at Magnet Interactive in Los Angeles. I was responsible for directing the technical staff, researching emerging technologies, and designing high-performance distributed systems for our clients.

Before joining Magnet, I served as Director of Engineering at COW, and Lead of the Programming Department at BoxTop Interactive. Projects at these companies included development of reusable frameworks, web-based applications, and data-driven systems. Clients ranged from dot-coms to well-known companies such as Nissan/Infiniti, Quiksilver, National Lampoon, Stanford University, Guess?, USC, Kahlua, UPN, UCLA, Major League Soccer, and SegaSoft.

Prior to focusing on Internet technology, I spent seven years in the Aerospace industry. I worked as a member of the technical staff at The Aerospace Corporation, where I researched distributed systems and database technologies. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Physics from Pomona College in Claremont, California and a Master of Science in Computer Engineering from the University of Southern California.
