David’s story with Rollbar

David Bell

Senior Software Engineer

David Bell

David has now been using Rollbar for 100 months!

1. What company do you work for (describe the product/service) and what projects are you working on there?

I'm a senior software developer who currently works for Bold Collective, who provide digital ad services. The main project I'm working on is our ad server, which serves millions of ad impressions and clicks a month. We also perform real time fraud detection and provide analytics on our traffic.

2. What are you most passionate about in your current and/or past roles?

I'm most passionate about problem solving and, in my current role, ensuring that our traffic is flowing through correctly and quickly.

3. Is there anything in particular about Rollbar that has kept you a loyal user all this time?

Rollbar is incredibly helpful in minimizing downtime, resolving errors, monitoring warnings and preventing disruption to our traffic flow, which is ultimately the most important thing for Bold.

I've used Rollbar for over 5 years now, across different roles and when I switched positions, it was one of the first tools I set up. It's enabled us to move quickly, secure in the knowledge that if any errors occur we will be the second to know.

We're big fans of the slack integration -- and our incident response team leverages that heavily.

The different message levels are an incredibly useful tool, enabling us to zoom in on behaviour when necessary.

"Rollbar allows us to go from alerting to impact analysis and resolution in a matter of minutes. Without it we would be flying blind."
