Engineering Lead

“I spend a great deal of my day thinking about how to make our products and services better. I accomplish some of these improvements by writing code, and accomplish even more by writing to and talking to people. I make technical decisions and keep an eye out for risks. I translate web developer jargon into layperson speech, and vice versa. I am the nerdiest person on the team.”
