My name is Brad and I love learning new things. I develop software for a living and I love my job.
I worked for a small start-up as a Full Stack Developer. I oversaw development on many web applications in various domains such as:
- Human Resources
- Public Utilities
I am currently working 100% remote with a geographically sparse team on a SaaS AWS based web app that is widely adopted within the insurance industry.
Being a Full Stack Developer I have often had to step outside of my typical comfort zone and completed or contributed to projects in many languages such as Ruby, Python, Lua, Perl, Java, PHP, VB.NET, and more.
I have often had to perform DevOps tasks such as setting up automated build servers, automating deployments to AWS / Azure, and the automation of basically anything that can be automated to save thousands of man-hours of work. 🙂
I graduated from Marshall University with a B.S. in Computer Science and a minor in Mathematics as well as a 4.0 in-major GPA.
While at college, I was accepted into the WV Governor’s Internship Program to work with the developers at the WV State Tax Department.
Upon the conclusion of my internship, I was contracted to single-handedly develop an online filing web application that tobacco wholesalers have used to collect $107 million in tax dollars in the year 2013 alone.
In my free time, I hang out on Stack Overflow and play classical guitar. I <3 my Cordoba C10 SP / IN classical guitar, my 2016 Gibson SG electric guitar, my Martin DX Dreadnought acoustic, and my Fender Jazz bass. If you wish to contact me about work, you may email me @ brad at bradleycarey dot com.
