About Metal Toad

Metal Toad is a values driven organization with over 16 years of history of delivering for our customers.  Founded by Joaquin Lippincott, a 20+ year technology veteran of the tech industry, back in 2003 Metal Toad has grown to become the world's only Media & Entertainment specialized AWS Consulting Partner. We have helped to modernize software for industry leaders like Sony, Daimler, Intel, the Golden Globes, Siemens Wind Power, ABC, NBC, DC Comics, Warner Brothers & the Linux Foundation.

Values: better work, a better world

We live by a set of core values that make every client interaction into a truly rewarding partnership.


Everyone who comes in contact with us discovers something helpful, whether a customer, a peer — or just a stranger in need.


Our curiosity propels our never-ending adventure: to be brave, to try new things, and to seek out the world's best.


We deliver great experiences from start to finish. This is always a central goal of every project and interaction.


We value other people's experiences and act by listening first. Because respect is not just fundamental to business, but to living in the world.

Provide Value

We deliver the best, and never over-engineer or spend money on things that aren't valuable.
