Nothing would make me happier than writing badass, beautiful, tested, and optimized code that solves an interesting problem. My objective is to work with a team which prides itself on high-level solution crafting, and stays firmly in the union of being on the edge of what’s technically feasible, excellence in design and implementation, and a fun place to work.
Philosophy and Approach
In my experience, knowing how to find out is more powerful than encyclopedic knowledge—technology changes too fast and if you are lucky enough to be in an exciting job, you’ll be constantly doing something new. I have learned that if you’ve got the ability to maintain curiosity, learn from the people around you, and pursue on-going education with dogged determination, you’ve got the chops to rise to the top as a developer; these are the qualities on which I focus my energy.
With Pollinate I am a jack-of-all-trades. On any given day I am wiring up 3rd party services, managing databases, building the backend for web applications and integrating the frontend, all the while maintaining and extending legacy projects and updating the company’s infrastructure.
Viewpoint Construction Software
I primarily worked on the Systems (Architecture) team, helping to publish their internal API to the company’s business logic programmers, as well as building out new Windows services and product features. Of note, I also led a new product team and was a leader in implementing Viewpoint’s move to Agile methodologies including Scrum, Agile estimating, Burn downs, etc.
