Nicolas studied math and computer science at Brandeis University in hopes of becoming a software developer. After graduation, he spent years conducting a contract and freelance career, but one day, he decided it was time to find a more permanent position. Nicolas chose Hearst Digital Media for the diversity of day-to-day projects.
The first thing Nicolas does each morning when he arrives in the office is check his email for any emergency issues that may have arisen overnight. He then sets about reviewing code written the previous day and creating new code as needed. Nicolas also trades code with his teammates, acting as a second set of eyes before finalization.
