- Describe your role at RichContext.
At RichContext, I am a full-stack software engineer. I wear many hats, running the gamut of most parts of our technology stack. This includes, but is not limited to client-side and server-side work, as well as contributions/assistance to our infrastructure and DevOps (development operations).
- What’s the best part about your job?
The ability to challenge me to continue learning and try new things. That comes with the territory of working at a startup, however, I think our team in general has the spirit of charting new territory when we can to try new approaches, technologies, and ways of thinking to tackle new and existing challenges in building great software products for our clients.
- Favorite RichContext memory so far?
It’s a toss-up between going to Mexico City as part of a remote working week or riding the Amtrak with the team up to Chicago for a business trip. My first week at RichContext was in Chicago on a business trip we had all made for a grocery conference. It was wild being in a city I had never been to before with people I didn’t really know at all, but I knew I was going to enjoy working with them at RichContext. At the office itself, there are a lot of great memories to choose from, it’s hard to pick just one.
- What do you like to do in your free time?
I love to travel. Domestic, international, to a new part of Springdale I’ve never been to. It doesn’t matter the location, I just like to see new places. My wife and I love to kayak and go geocaching. In our downtime, we like to put together puzzles we made from movie posters. We also take a lot of impromptu drives just to relax, and shoot the breeze by doing things like reading or critiquing music videos.
- What’s a little known fact about you?
My wife and I tend to 6 animals — 3 dogs, and 3 cats. It wasn’t something we planned on happening, more so a series of events that snowballed out of control, but we love all 6 of them anyway. Two dogs are shelties, and the other one is a german shepherd.
