In this week’s behind-the-scenes post, we’ll introduce you to a team member who’s been here since nearly the beginning. He’s put in a lot of hours, many late nights, and supplied us with some great quotes that made us take a break from what we were doing to let out a good laugh. He’s a Senior Developer, secret professional bowler, and has the coolest, most intimidating middle name ever – Vondo. Meet Greg!
Forte @ ecomdash: Working on ecomlister, our in-app automated product listing tool.
Experience: Greg has been developing software in varying technologies since around 2000. His favorite applications (besides ecomdash of course) were some applications he wrote for Toyota Racing. They were used by the engineers and crew chiefs of NASCAR teams and for Duke Energy’s Nuclear department. Vroom vroom.
Song he requests to play in the office: The Pandora stations based on the Kongos and The Airborne Toxic Event.
What he’s dressing up as for Halloween: “Asking this in August? I don’t think about what to dress up for Halloween until…like Oct 30th.” -A direct quote from the man himself.
If he could have any super power, it would be: Greg would love to be able to fly.
What he brings to parties: A bottle of Basil Hayden bourbon or lasagna.
If he could sit next to anyone at dinner, it would be: “Uh……” We’ll leave that one open-ended.
He is famous in the ecomdash office for: Reigning ping pong champion and having his quotes written on the whiteboard by Laura. Here’s an example:
Funny because its true.
Celebrity doppelgänger: Andre Agassi.
We’re so lucky to have Greg on board, and appreciate his motivation to work tirelessly for the company. The life of a developer is filled with long hours and lots of hard work. Greg’s dedication doesn’t go unnoticed. Thank you Greg for everything you’ve done for our team! Ecomdash wouldn’t be the same without you.
