Company Role: Lead Developer for the Rails Team
What do you do at Switchbox?
I help the Rails team run projects, work on software development and write programming. I also am a team lead and project coordinator for the Rails development team.
What is your favorite memory at Switchbox?
Universal Studios work/GGOB trip – really great to get everyone together, and going out and getting dinner. Vegas was also a memorable experience.
The day the wall fell over in the parking lot and crushed a bunch of cars was pretty awesome.
And of course the chili cookoff is always a great time at the office.
What’s your favorite movie or TV show?
What do you like to do when you aren’t at work?
Submission grappling – which is a form of ground wrestling. Jujitsu, building custom mechanical keyboards, walks outside, dangling things in front of my cat.
What is your favorite thing about working at Switchbox?
The culture that we’ve built up and doing a great job of hiring like minded people who get along well and become friends. Friendly, welcoming, atmosphere.
