(CV - https://mark.biek.org/cv/)

I've been working full time as a software developer since 1998 and I love the intellectual thrill of writing code and solving problems.

I firmly believe that the days of a developer working by themself in a room are over. Software Development is all about collaboration. The ability to work with other developers and clients is just as important as the ability to write code. I love to work with awesome, smart people making beautiful and exciting things. I love making things that people will use and enjoy.

I am not a great programmer.

I am a middle-of-the-road programmer.

I don’t think I’m a 10x programmer. I am not changing the world. I never invented a programming language or wrote a really amazing piece of software that everyone knows about.

So I have to make up for it other ways.

  • I write decent code (mostly).
  • I document things.
  • I accept criticism.
  • I’m always learning.
  • I can stay organized in a large project.
  • I work well with people, especially non-technical people.
  • I can be an advocate for a talented team member who is being overlooked or mentor Junior developers.
  • I can deal with jerks without getting upset.
  • I can get things done. If there is a roadblock or someone is stuck, I can generally get things moving again

I’m going to bring value to the table in whatever way I can.
