Hi, I'm Jake

Engineer, Manager, Nerd

What do I do?


I've been engineering software for nearly a decade. Many of the blog posts here will be based around software development.


I've spent years mentoring new software engineers on how to advance their careers, and leading teams of engineers to complete projects.


I'm definitely a nerd. Console gaming and Magic the Gathering are other hobbies I have besides writing code.
