Lacy was hired as a lead developer and, upon the leaving of our co-founder took over as CTO of Earbits. Lacy is, hands down, one of those A Players you hear of companies dying to hire. He is incredibly smart, not just at code but about everything from classical music to Chinese language and culture. Lacy is great to work with and, as a well established contributor to open source projects and several successful ventures, commands the respect of engineers at all levels. I would suggest doing anything you can to have him on your team.

I've had the great pleasure of working with Lacy for the past three years at Earbits, and on a few side projects. Two years ago our CTO left on a moment's notice, Lacy saved our company by quickly stepping up to fill this role. He has been with our company through thick and thin and made serious personal sacrifices in order to help the company during tough times. He is a phenomenal hacker and a true team player. Highly recommended!

Lacy is an extremely talented engineer with a very broad range of skills and experience. From being a thought leader in the front-end community via backbonetutorials.com and cdnjs.com, to designing and implementing the API for cdnjs.com, working with Lacy has been fantastic learning experience. Lacy is truly a full stack develop, and his work output is incredible. If there is any opportunity to work with Lacy, I take it. He is the definition of an A player.

On Lacy Davis ... Hire this guy. Do not be fooled. Incredibly capable and fast. Plays well with others. Unbelievable at front-end work end programming but that is just the start. Visionary. Hire him before I do.
