Software Development Manager
What do you do at STCU?
I manage the software development department, which creates the apps and programs that the whole credit union uses to do their jobs. We make the tools that help others do their jobs well.
What do you like best about your job?
I am the “go between” for people who need software changes and updates, and the people who make those changes happen. I like that I get to help coordinate the building of solutions.
How long have you worked for the credit union?
I started in July of this year, so five months.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
In five years, I see myself doing a much better job at this job.
Any advice for someone looking to do your job?
Having a deep interest in computer software will help a lot, because software is its “own world”. You don’t have to have written software yourself to do this job well, but it sure can help to have that experience!
Dogs or cats?
Both! I have both. I have a boxer mutt named Atlas who is currently destroying the house, and two cats named Pipsqueak and Tillamook. None of them get along.
What is your favorite denomination of money?
I like 20 dollar bills. They feel a little big, but not so big that it hurts when you spend them.
What’s your dream vacation destination?
Some place cold with lots of snow. Let’s go with Alaska.
