Early Career

He was the first engineer to publish a ROM based on CyanogenMod [2] which was a fork of the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). Rummler amassed a large group of Android enthusiasts who installed his after-market distributions of the OS [2, 3]. In 2010, Rummler published Android Overclock, the first app to overclock the Motorola DroidX and Droid2 smartphones [4]. The app received a review in CNN Tech and was a top-15 paid app on the Android Market.

The apps were ranked in the top-10 overall paid apps category, top-100 grossing apps category, and trending apps category [5]. The apps gained over 50-million downloads from 2012-2017. The apps published by JRummy were acquired in 2017 by Maple Media, LLC. [6, 7, 8, 9, 10].


After the asset purchase, Rummler was a senior software engineer or engineering manager on projects for Honda Innovations, iHeartRadio, Katalyst Fitness, the NBA, Float.Today, Invoy, and VotingApp. Rummler was the lead engineer on the team that won the grand prize at the 2018 LA AutoMobility Hackathon.
