Damon worked as an intern with AppFolio while attending graduate school for computer science at UCSB. Impressed by the company and his fantastic internship experience, Damon joined the team after earning his master’s degree. When AppFolio acquired MyCase, Damon moved south to AppFolio’s San Diego office to help with the engineering effort there.
Damon starts each workday by checking in with one of his engineers and, over coffee, they discuss current projects and how their work relates to more lofty career goals. Because Damon oversees the hiring of people on his team, he also spends part of his day participating in interviews and recruiting new candidates.
