Richard Anton

Software Developer



I am a software developer. I am currently working at Amazon as a Principal Engineer for Amazon Advertising, and previously on the AWS Observability team. Previously I worked at Google as an SRE (Site Reliability Engineer) for 5+ years.

Some other places I have worked at the past include the first time around(I boomeranged back), Cyber Operations, and in the Army Signal Corps.

I also founded BoxTop Software along with my brother where I led engineering for five years full time and worked on image data compression and file format applications and plugins.

Now days I mostly work on large distributed systems, especially system design, architecture, scalability, and reliability.

In my free time I like to play around with machine learning, computer vision, and computer graphics, especially 3D rendering and image processing.
