Colin earned a degree in computer science from the University of San Francisco. After working as a system administrator, Colin pursued his master’s degree as he worked for his alma mater. With an understanding of programming, Colin came to Fluxx as a part-time employee before transitioning to his full-time role, where he enjoys ownership over new projects.
Colin sits on the Development Team, keeping all of Fluxx’s systems healthy by managing its infrastructure and collaborating with his team to deliver the best products to their clients. Colin’s most recent project consists of rebuilding Fluxx’s toolchain to run products on Amazon. For the project, he builds tools to maintain and deploy new software.
“What gets me excited to come into work are the tools I’m building. They make life easier for the entire team. Each day consists of a lot of problem-solving, and it’s exciting because every day is different.”
“One of the most important things we look for in a new team member is their ability to learn. I had to learn a lot about grant management coming in. That is so important, versus being well-versed in one specific coding language.”
