What is your favorite part about working here?
Working at Entrision is very peaceful. We do a lot of programming, and there are usually a lot of moving pieces, but the way the project management is set up, and the processes we have in place - there is very little stress and developers’ opinions are always well respected. In my opinion, we have just the right balance of support and empowerment. I feel like I have the resources that I need but the freedom to deliver. There is also a great work-life balance, family priorities are well respected and supported.
What's your favorite ruby gem?
My favorite ruby gem is “pundit”. It really helps a lot when building a simple but scalable authorization system. It is easily customizable for different authorization requirements that can sometimes be very complex. I find myself using it on almost every project.
What project have you been most excited to work on?
I've enjoyed all of the projects that I have been involved with at Entrision so far. All of the codebases I have been exposed to are well architected to handle the most complex requirements efficiently. The customer involvement is great, and the requirements are always clear. In my current project, I especially enjoy the close relationship we have with the customer and the quality customer feedback we get at every step of the development process.
Why do you love being a software developer?
I have been programming since I was 15 years old, and I love it. I can’t imagine myself doing anything else for a living. Being able to architect a system from the ground up and knowing your work is helping make people’s lives easier is a great feeling.
We know you are out of Nashville, so when you visit Milwaukee, what is your favorite place to visit?
My first goal when I visit Milwaukee will be to watch a Milwaukee Bucks game live in their new stadium. I love basketball and the Milwaukee Bucks are one of my favorite teams.
