Now available for new opportunities from companies needing help from someone at the technology leadership level to help you realize your innovative vision.

Consider reaching out if you need someone who can help you achieve your vision through proven experience and effective methodologies to assess, plan, implement, and evaluate amazing innovations in technology and other sectors.

I have 40+ years of tech, 30+ years R&D, 30+ years music, 20+ years healthcare, 20+ years security, 15+ years management & media, 15+ years Recreation therapy, 10+ years automotive, 10+ years professional photography, and many other diverse experiences in my background.

Involved with tech since 1977. I first began coding in 1979 around 8-9 years old, & was online via ARPANET through the University of Utah!

I am enthusiastic about how technology can help improve the quality of life for people globally, while taking into account the holistic human experience and need for life-balance where it is also important to "unplug".

I have additional diversity with a background in healthcare, music & recreation therapy, research psychology, and the neurosciences.

You can see more details about my unusually diverse and deep background here: https://www.hawkenterprising.com/
and here: https://www.hawkerobinson.com/

I have worked and consulted for Fortune 100 & 500 companies.

Not counting the several small companies I built myself over the decades, for others I have built entire IT departments from scratch, including acting directly in all roles necessary for doing the work myself and/or hiring the best people for the job: software, hardware, networking, R&D, VARs, contracts, budgeting, legal, marketing, sales, international distributed teams, facilities design & building, and much more.

I have repeatedly built entire platforms from scratch. Whether using established development platforms, through custom coding from the ground up, or through cobbling together opensource and other technologies. When needed, I only need a few weeks to brush up on my decades of hands-on coding experience and write from scratch or hack what needs to be hacked to make it work.

I prefer clean, well architected, robust, proven methodology-guided approaches, including properly designed, testing-driven, beautiful design patterns, and code, but I can also do quick and dirty prototyping necessary to get things done. Whether classical waterfall project approaches or CI/CD driven Agile related.

I adapt to the best tools for the job to meet the scope of the business, to bring their vision to life.

I have diverse 20+ years hands-on & leadership experience in: technology, proven executive-level management, DevOps, manufacturing, games research & development, software R&D, and healthcare experience.

Repeatedly successful track record for turning companies around from running double-digits in the red, to double-digits in the black within 1 to 3 years.

Excellent skills in business continuity planning & analysis.

Proven record of executive leadership of information technology operations within multiple industries including: IT & InfoSec, Education, Energy, Entertainment, Events, Healthcare & Medical, Media streaming, Non-profits, Publishing, Recreation, SaaS, IaaS, cloud services, virtual office & workplace / telecommuting, & many others. Involved with healthcare since 1990.

Highly adaptable, simultaneously excels at system-level architectural design, program-specific implementation, and hands-on execution.

To be blunt though, letting you know up-front my hands-on coding is getting a bit rusty, so if you want a CTO that is a full-time coder too, rather than the full spectra of diversity across all areas of CTO skills, you may want to consider someone else.

Recommendations from others here: https://www.hawkenterprising.com/archives/resumes/web/recommendations-collection/

Consider me if you are looking for someone that has repeatedly brought innovators visions to fruition. Someone with hands-on experience at all technical levels including: R&D, facilities acquisition & development, hardware, software development, systems administration, database, e-commerce, supply chain, manufacturing, networking, security, project management, vendors, services providers, publishing, on-shore and off-shore services, talent recruiting, staff management, and much more.

TESTIMONIALS / RECOMMENDATIONS

"There are very few CTOs who possess not only the ability to execute complex technical tasks, but the high-level “soft” knowledge that maintains team cohesion, communication with non-technical partners, and essential support in investor pitch meetings. Mr. Robinson is one of them." --Ben Dobyns, Founder & COO, The Fantasy Network Corporation, August, 2020. thefantasy.network

"Hawke is a fantastic developer with strong security credentials". --Ben Dobyns, CEO, Zombie Orpheus Entertainment. September 4th, 2017. http://www.zombieorpheus.com

"Hello! I was a counselor at the MDA 2017 Summer Camp and participated in both the Battle Royale and the Adventure Quest. All I can say is that you are AWESOME. My shy camper completely opened up for the
first time during the Battle Royale and had the best time. I know that it was his favorite activity from the camp! Plus, he loved that he got to decorate and keep his very own shield. Thank you for everything that
you do. I'm forever grateful to you! "
--Emily Fejeran, Aug 08, 2017 11:10 AM

I can unequivocally recommend Hawke Robinson as a person of high integrity and one of the very best technicians that I have ever worked with. I have worked with him on several teams and diverse projects and he has ALWAYS exceeded the expectations of the mission. His detailed knowledge and unyielding dedication make him an ideal choice for any effort on any team. One of the brightest and most dedicated individuals I have ever met, Hawke is a highly skilled technician as well as a uniquely talented individual. He demonstrates outstanding leadership abilities, an unparalleled work ethic and enjoys tremendous success in all efforts he undertakes. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, he is an extremely pleasant person to work around. I can recommend Hawke Robinson as a person and technician without reservation. -- Phillip Hillian, Data Systems Engineer, April 8th, 2011 - https://www.linkedin.com/in/hillian/

Hawke is largely responsible for the developer I am today. While at MightyWords, he sort of took me under his wing and gave me the room to expand my knowledge and make a massive impact on the technical operations of the company while providing opportunity after opportunity to let me learn, grow and put my new-found knowledge to work. His knowledge is amazingly broad and deep and he is able to see the big picture for any project and get the right people in the right places at the right time to make it all come together. On a personal level, he is one of the most generous and friendly people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. This engendered a loyalty to him that I still haven't shaken. I consider him a natural leader for all of these reasons. --Rob Zazueta. Director of Digital Strategy at TIBCO Software Inc. August 29th, 2009. https://www.linkedin.com/in/techknowme

Hawke was an outstanding leader with the highest level of integrity. He took a rag tag team of developers and built an amazing department through coaching and leading by example. Hawke is a perfect blend of business man meets technical maven. I would recommend Hawke to any company looking for a stand-up leader, with great people skills and a broad understanding of technology. --Brian Scardina. Directory, Application Security at TSYS.
