What kind of person do you want to work with?
In a nutshell
I love my work! I spend 10-12 hours a day in "work mode". I get an obnoxious amount of joy from making something appear on a computer screen. The power to create useful and beautiful things is beyond rewarding. I've been making such things on the internet since 2008.
Because I love coding and I care about creating the best possible programs I can. Because I love learning and sharing new skills. I govern a genuine desire to understand people and their needs. I'm passionate, punctual, patient and professional. And because being of service to others makes me the happiest.
I also harbour a robust sense of humour and a calm and courteous state of being (for the most part).

How will the person you hire now be contributing to the success of your company in 5 years from now?
In 5 years from now
I work with an inspiring team that has a strong and supportive work ethic. They expect the best of me. And I inspire the finest in them. We work on exciting projects that push our skills to the next level. We learn together and teach each other.
I'm in a senior position. Helping and training others. Working close with my managers to achieve successful outcomes. I'm constantly learning new skills and implementing new tools. Attending conferences and workshops to keep sharp and stay relevant. Sharing my knowledge with everyone on the team.
I've built lasting relationships with my work mates based in trust, integrity and clear communication. I am contributing to the success of a great company. I am content and inspired every single day.
Other things I love almost as much as coding
