Mitchell's career began with a bachelor's in history from the University of Chicago. After a number of internships in the data sector, he began looking for a job in tech, picking up a number of programming languages along the way. Mitchell moved to Austin as a full-stack developer, but decided to focus on the front-end when he came to CreditCards.com.
At CreditCards.com, each Engineering Team tackles a handful of projects simultaneously—often across brands and platforms—and Mitchell's team is no exception. Whether it's building a redesign for an affiliate, developing an in-house framework for generating static sites, or coming up with new ideas to compete in the marketplace, Mitchell loves the speed with which the company is charging ahead.
"You have the opportunity to skip across different sites and apps and find things you want to work on for a quarter or two, and then transfer to a completely different part of the platform and explore different technologies."
"We need people who can study up on a language, a framework, whatever we need to build in, and adapt to that really quickly."
