Platform Engineer

But what do you actually DO at Alight?

I’m part of the team that’s constantly evolving ChannelMix, pushing it further and making it even more valuable to our clients.

You love your job because …

I not only like what I’m doing, I get to do it with a great group of people in an environment that is productive and fun!

What did you do before you came to Alight?

I was a full-stack web developer working on maintaining and helping create a rewrite of an enterprise-level dental office and clinical management software suite.

Marketers are your favorite people because …

Without effective marketing, there would be a whole world of products and services that I might not even know exist.

What do you do when you aren’t at work?

I enjoy working on my own software and hardware projects and tinkering with my 3-D printers.

People are always surprised to learn that you …

Wrote my first code when I was 8 years old.

What was your favorite band 10 years ago? Do you still listen to them?

Cake, and yes, I do!

What’s your go-to karaoke song?

It’s “Hard to be Humble” by Mac Davis.
