StackOverflow CAREERS


I like to develop applications that make users feel good. It is important to me that applications have a clear presentation of the data and empower users to make decisions intuitively.

I have been developing web-based applications for 20 years and have extensive knowledge about the latest trends, and more importantly, what has led to those trends. I am able to apply my experience in a wide range of software platforms and implement complicated systems from the design phase, through development and testing, and into maintenance.
