Ryan studied computer information systems but didn’t know what he wanted to do as a career. After writing his first program in COBOL, he was hooked—but the economy’s decline pushed Ryan to take a job in finance. After years at that company, he craved growth opportunities and energy—and one step into Jive’s office revitalized Ryan and sold him on the team.
Ryan takes many meetings throughout the day, so he’s in the office by 8 AM to organize the schedule and make time to interface with the Engineering Team. Ryan’s main goal is process improvement and meeting sprint deadlines, but he’s also committed to keeping his team happy—which means lots of video game breaks and happy hours are on the docket too.
