What is it you do at ORO?
I write code and manage our growing engineering team! When I first joined ORO, I spent many months building out a rock-solid software foundation for us to create our services on. Since then, I have been involved in the planning and development of many features throughout the platform. On the managing side, I scope out areas of the product for others to work on, provide guidance on building high quality and maintainable code, and ensure that the product is always functioning at a high bar.
Tell us more about your background:
I've always loved coding! When I was a kid, I learned to code so I could make my own video games. After studying computer science in college, I shifted my focus into business software applications and web services. I spent four years at a company specializing in predictive analytics in Washington DC, where I worked as a software engineer and team lead. After leaving DC, I spent a little over a year at Uber in NYC, leading the efforts to build a new web platform for the Uber Health product, which focuses on non-emergency medical transport. Now, I work on ORO full time as I travel from place to place and see more of the world!
