I started my carrier freelancing for local businesses. It is something I've enjoyed on the side my entire carrer, first with small PHP projects, and later large-scale web applications.
I developed web applications tailored to a variety of clients across international, professional, and college sports leagues. This job really exposed me to learning new frameworks and technologies quickly, and fully embracing this variety lead me to recognition and advancing in the company.
Taking over a vacant senior development position, I became the established expert for ongoing projects within a month of starting. During my time, we had a number of technology projects including successfully launching a series of applications and tutorials for the 2016 Microsoft Build conference, developing a large-scale energy management solution, and kiosk software that needed to work in a number of locations both with and without internet access.
Leading an architecture and design revamp for a digital menu board product, I have reduced maintenance time, build time, file size, and increased code quality all while providing uninterrupted service for our client’s franchises around the world. I continue to work with project managers, designers, and developers to ensure quick and quality code that meets our budget needs. Moreover, by focusing on unambiguous communication, deadlines and needs continue to be met despite the turbulence business-life regularly comes with.
First of all I am passionate about music and civil rights. I enjoy watching the Seahawks and choosing different challenges for myself and seeing them through. When things get hectic I enjoy meditation and creating art to bring me back down to Earth.
David Bradbury is a creative and talented developer that provides great design input, product ideas, and testing feedback. During his tenure at Ballena Technologies, he proved to be forward-thinking, attentive to customer experience, and willing to think outside the box. His development efforts were steady and communication was clear. I recommend David for development and design positions in which skill advancement is a must, feedback is valued, and user experience is of great importance. Chris Brewer, CEO at BoldFeature.
