The web changes constantly. Developers need to be flexible and agile. Learning and implementing new technologies and techniques is pretty much a daily occurrence. You also have to enjoy solving problems. Developers think a little differently. Visualizing something from the ground up, or thinking through all the possibilities, takes a different kind of mind. And when you get it wrong and have to start over, it takes perseverance and determination—but that can be part of the fun too.
I love building and fixing things. I enjoy showing a new feature to someone for the first time or being able to tell someone their problem is fixed. I came to work at Coffey because I like people. I'm fortunate that I get to work with a group of people that I not only enjoy, but that I can learn from as well.
