Adam Shake

Mackinaw Illinois


Adam is a high energy, passionate early adopter of many things IT. He currently leads a team of SRE’s at MediaMath, helping that team, and the company grow, learn, and Do Good Better is what he considers his dream job. He loves to play on the bleeding edge of many things, and likes to inject technology in almost all aspects of work and home life. If he is not automating some process, or part of his home, then he is likely just planning the next one!

Adam has 20 years of experience in web application development, and has spent the last few years involved in operations, DevOps, SRE, and other general IT Awesomeness.

Outside of work, he suffers from ‘Multiple Hobby Syndrome’ — much to his wife’s dismay — and enjoys brewing his own beer, hunting and the outdoors, singing with the Sound of Illinois barbershop chorus and his barbershop quartets. Adam’s family includes his Wife (mentioned above), 8 year old son, and 2 year old twins.
