What’s your current role with Sevaa Group? What do you do on a day to day basis?
I’m a developer, which means I spend all day complaining about code. Could be mine, could be someone else’s, but it is always complaining.
How did you get into the web-hosting field?
By hosting my own web sites! I used to make simple Geocities and Homestead sites all the time as a kid, plus I’ve loved programming as far back as I can remember. It turned from an interest, to a hobby, to a career before I realized it.
What is your favorite part about working at Sevaa?
There’s a lot to love, but it’s definitely the fact that we’re focused on the client’s success and well-being. We work hard to make sure our clients have the tools they need to be successful, because that’s what makes us successful. Also, there’s a Chipotle, like, right across the street.
Before working at Sevaa, what was the most unusual job you’ve ever had?
I used to be a multiplex projectionist at a movie theater, back when film was still around. I loved sprinting from screen-to-screen, threading the film through those hulking projectors and platters.
What project has been your favorite to work on during your time at Sevaa?
We do a lot of rewarding work for non-profits that I really enjoy, but nothing beats making a custom little app to do one stupid thing like figure out where you’re gonna get lunch that day.
