Continuing along on my mission to get to know the Magento development team, I had the opportunity to talk with George and learn more about him and his role at Briteskies.
As the Senior Magento Developer George helps lead the development team. Starting his day with a stand-up meeting, he reviews the team's tasks and identifies his priorities for the day. After the team check-in, George jumps right into development work for our clients. As the proverbial man on the ground, George is responsible for building and configuring Magento eCommerce sites, developing modules in PHP (always adhering to best practices, of course), designing themes and interfaces, troubleshooting integration issues, and attending to any client requests. George also attends client meetings to help give progress reports and discuss any major issues.
At Briteskies, for our Magento Managed Services clients, our developers work off ticket requests. A client sends in a request for one of their sites, and the developer will solve that problem, make that change, and move on to the next ticket in their queue. This is why our developers will often be working for multiple clients at once.
George has been with Briteskies for just over a year but has been working in the industry for his entire professional career. Having an affinity for computers starting at a young age, George always knew that he would end up working in the tech industry.
When asked why he enjoys working at Briteskies, George answered that he appreciates the ability to work on multiple projects at once, "I get to do a lot of different things in my workday, working with different clients on different projects keeps my day interesting."
As a Magento developer, George is exposed to a wide variety of projects and says that PWA projects have been the most interesting for him as he enjoys getting to work with multiple programming languages. George also said, "Overall, PWA's provide a modern and flexible approach to web development, allowing Magento 2 developers to create engaging, fast, and reliable applications that work seamlessly across different devices and platforms."
Culture is something we take seriously at Briteskies and George has integrated into it seamlessly. With his upbeat, cheerful personality and his rocking breakdance moves, George is often the life of our parties and we love cheering him on!
When George isn't working on client development needs, he loves to travel, and of course, get out into Cleveland's best parks and playgrounds to chase after his kids, making sure they don't break any bones!
