Let's grab a cup of coffee (111 Minna?)
Meet the San Francisco team
Jack is a developer in our San Francisco office. He spends most of his time developing in Rails but is looking forward to getting more front end experience. He moved to the west coast from North Carolina primarily for the great weather and the easy access to the Sierras. When he's not busy developing or learning new things he's probably off climbing in Yosemite, cycling through Marin or enjoying a superfluous cup of coffee.
A roll dog at heart, Tony graduated from Northeastern University with an Electrical and Computer Engineering degree. He's been programming since his childhood and has done a bit of everything from full stack web development to native mobile apps. He still retains his love of hardware and is always looking for ways to combine that knowledge with software wizardry. When he's not working or hacking on fun side projects, you will find him working out with the November Project community early in the mornings.
Chris has been a consulting developer since 2007. He started in the wet heat of Mississippi, dabbled in the dry cold of Alaska, and is now enjoying the temperateness of the Bay Area. He spends a lot of time in front of computers, mostly yelling at them for being broken.
Developer and CMO
A not-so-recent grad from Cornell University, Amanda was born and raised in NYC. She loves street vendor hot dogs, white sneakers, and taking pictures of food. When she's not blogging about her culinary confections, she can be found cursing at Gradle or trying to convert everyone she meets to the wonderful world of functional reactive programming!
Lydia studied Art History at Trinity College before working as a visual designer in the creative department of a digital ad agency. She then realized that coding is fun. This, and a love of robots, led her to thoughtbot.
Greg leads our San Francisco web development team. When it comes to spoken languages, Greg speaks several. When it comes to programming languages, Greg is always looking to pick up a new one. Besides languages, Greg is fond of hiking, camping, backpacking, and just being outdoors in general. When indoors, Greg loves a good book, board game, or a movie.
Jake is a developer with an insatiable thirst for learning. He first dipped his toe into programming with a homegrown PHP app and had so much fun he decided to pursue a career in it. Years later, he's now knowledgeable in a variety of programming languages and frameworks and is having as much fun as he did when he started.
Josh is a developer who loves board games, rock climbing, and riding his bike unreasonably long distances. He's mostly fueled by coffee and podcasts, and has a passion for craftsmanship and the maker community.
Morgane is weirdly alive and loving every minute of it.
Gabe enjoys Ruby, Rails, and Haskell. Try talking to him on Twitter.
Steven is a SF transplant originating in Michigan, by way of Michigan State University. With a background in psychology, Steven is fascinated by how we interact and behave on the web. He enjoys spending his free time with his dog wandering the hills of Silicon Valley or exploring SF's finest coffee shops and eateries. Get in touch with him – @smharley.
