Allow us to introduce you to the crew
Engine Room was founded in 2014 by Dennis Egen. Dennis has enjoyed success over the years creating and leading the technology vision for agencies building complex, secure, data driven marketing applications for clients such as Wawa, JPMorgan Chase, Aqua America, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble, Morgan Stanley, Ogilvy, Publicis, Barclays and many more. All of these applications were data driven and more than simply brochure- ware sites. Some applications had tens of millions of customer records containing PI (Personal Information), marketing data (segmentation, funnel, analytics) and many hooks to outside systems (SAML, SSO, etc.). In addition to his day job running Engine Room, Dennis also teaches Software Engineering and Network Security at Rutgers University. Dennis has a B.S. and M.S. in computer science.
