Jeremy Glesner serves as chief technology officer at software and analysis firm Berico Technologies, a company he helped start in 2006 as the “federal sector began embracing agile methodologies and open source technologies to deliver increased capability to the warfighter while reducing cost,” the company notes.
Glesner and Berico’s other co-founders saw an opportunity to provide interdisciplinary teams of data scientists, analysts and software engineers to partner with clients and collaborate on building solutions in support of this strategy.
The 15-year industry veteran has helped grow Berico from a start-up to a two-time selection as top 5 ‘Government Contractor of the Year’ that employs more than 80 people toward its business goals, which include helping customers derive meaningful insight from their big data.
As CTO, Glesner is responsible for Berico’s product innovation and has helped hone the company’s focus on open source technologies and user interface and experience. He does that in part by overseeing innovation efforts, including brainstorming and prototyping ideas, and initiating and leading projects as an enterprise architect.
Under his leadership, Berico has built and released two products for the open-source community and won the NVTC Destination Innovation Award. Those products are:
AMPere – an event-driven oriented architecture “for the purpose of integration, componentization, reusability and discoverability usingasynchronous application-to-service and service-to-service communication in the cloud”
CLAVIN – “a linearly scalable package for document geotagging and geoparsing in the cloud, used to extract location names from unstructured text and resolve them against a gazetteer to produce data-rich geographic entities”
Across his 15 years of industry experience, Glesner has worked in the U.S., Europe and Afghanistan. He holds undergraduate degrees in government and politics, and computer and information science from the University of Maryland‘s College Park and University College institutions, respectively.
He also earned a graduate degree in software engineering from Drexel University.
Berico is set to release two new products including Rivium, a web-based data exploration and visualization application, and Howdah, a “content store that leverages open source technologies and features such as security, versioning, search, and eventing to large scale data.”
