Meet Bryant – Software Development Wunderkind

bryantHow do you make an awesome team even more awesome? You find the right people and you “get them on the bus”. They’ll find their seat. Which is why we’re excited to announce the addition of our newest team member, Bryant Jackson!

Bryant came to us and we instantly fell in love with his enthusiasm, drive, and eagerness to learn.

What made you want to be an app developer?
Ever since I was a little kid I’ve been fascinated with computers. I grew up telling my parents, “I don’t know what I want to do, but I know I want it to involve computers.” I took my first programming class when I was 14 (really more on a whim than anything), and I was hooked.

What’s the best thing about app development?
I love creating and tinkering. Software development feeds that hunger. At the end of the day I can look at something and be like ‘Yeah, I made that.’ Best feeling in the world.

What’s your favorite thing about working at Stickboy®?
Really there are two major perks to working at Stickboy®. First and foremost, the people are fantastic. You guys are just the friendliest lot, and that’s really important to me. The second is I get to do what I love, and getting exposure to new people and projects is helping me improve my trade. I get to work on projects on a scale I’ve never dreamed of. It’s exciting!

What are your hobbies/favorite things to do outside of work?
At the end of the workday, I turn off my computer, head home, and then promptly turn my computer back on. In my free time, I enjoy tinkering with game development. It’s a natural extension of my programming. I really enjoy Game Jams. You’re given a time limit (usually 2 to 3 days) to create a game based on a specific keyword.

We’re looking forward to watching him grow into his role here at Stickboy® and can’t wait to see the kinds of things he’s able to do for our clients. If you want to see what he can do for your project, or you’d like to send us your resume and join our team let us know.
