Where were you prior to joining Codeship?
Prior to joining Codeship I’ve spent over a decade building products and leading teams for start ups in the educational, financial, and retail software industries.
What do you do at Codeship?
I work with our product team to add new features to the Codeship website. That could be anything from making it easier for users to manage their accounts to viewing their build runs. As a new member of the team, a large part of my job recently has been to ask questions and provide an outsider’s perspective to our development practices.
Why do you like working for Codeship?
I love having the opportunity to help create a tool that is used by other developers. Codeship is a fantastic product that lets teams write higher quality code. It’s incredibly satisfying knowing that my work directly helps other engineers.
Why should others work for Codeship?
Codeship has a kind, respectful, remote first culture. Everyone is treated with respect and a lot of trust is given to use to do our jobs the best way we see fit. I work remotely from the midwestern United States, and I never feel left out of the loop with my coworkers in Boston, Vienna, or other places around the world.
I am a huge fan of video games: I’ve spent most of the free time in my adult life either playing, reading, or writing about gaming. From age 10 when my brother and I did a summer’s worth of chores to get our first system (an NES), I haven’t stopped playing. It’s a tradition I’ve passed on to my daughter. We regularly play games together.
Name one fun fact about yourself!
I can wiggle my ears! That’s why I keep my hair so short.
