In this role, Christie is responsible for leading the global engineering team to enhance ChannelAdvisor's software as a service (SaaS) platform. Christie works closely with strategic partners, customers and ChannelAdvisor's product management team to deliver innovative solutions to e-commerce challenges.

He's built a great team, managed the implementation of our recent integrations with third-party marketplaces, created the Amazon Repricer and been behind a number of significant enhancements to our overall architecture."

Before joining ChannelAdvisor in 2006, Christie was a software design engineer at Microsoft. There, he was an early member of the team that created Visual Studio Team System, now Visual Studio ALM. Christie received Bachelor of Science degrees in computer engineering and computer science from North Carolina State University, where he graduated as a Park Scholar.
