A Montana local, Colby spent three years as a teacher before deciding to leave the public sector and pursue a career as a developer—gaining hands-on development experience with a local company. When Colby learned about Workiva, it was barely a year old, and he eagerly got in on the ground floor.
Managing teams of multiple developers, Colby leads the daily stand-up meetings, focused on troubleshooting problems and taking on issues as they arise. Always clearing roadblocks for his team as they work towards production, Colby is also constantly focused on empowering his developers, ensuring they achieve career goals and get to work on exciting projects.
“We always keep the customer in mind when we tackle development problems. It’s rewarding to know that we’re not just coding—we’re helping people.”
“Workiva is a great career choice for developers. It’s a refreshing place, where a developer can expect to be listened to on their first day, whether they have 10 years’ experience or are fresh graduates.”
