James has been programming since he was 10 years old. He studied computer science in college and then spent a great deal of time working as a consultant. Searching for somewhere he could have more ownership over his work, he found Appian—where he was excited to join a company on the cutting edge of technology.
An early riser, James is in the office before 8 AM. He starts every morning with a daily scrum with his team to get in sync about what needs to be accomplished. With a great love for the art of coding, James always finds some time to squeeze in writing code himself too.
“There is a lot of collaboration here to make sure we have our finger on the pulse of each department—to ensure people are in the right place and being really effective.”
“We strive to create an environment where innovation happens naturally and really challenge people to think of interesting ideas—and then take the time to think them through and get input from their departments.”
