As a Senior User Experience Designer in nearForm I help our clients craft effortless and enjoyable customer experiences. Design is front-and-centre for all of our engagements. Project kickoff workshops and Design Sprints keep our efforts focused on the customer experience and we continually learn and refine our approach.
Many of us work remotely so we use best-in-class collaboration tools, social activities are organised throughout the year so that we can catchup in person. I feel proud to be part of a confident, friendly and progressive workplace.
Working with nearForm has been an extremely positive change in my career. Getting the opportunity to work on some of the greatest and cutting-edge technologies has always been the most exciting part. I’m very proud of the work we do by producing better and faster software everyday.
All that at no expense of one’s personal and family life. The “talent first” attitude is just awesome. Being able to work remotely in your own comfort zone is the best of all.
As an Executive Architect I don't just manage complex customer projects but I also work with the other XAs on our strategic technology decisions to ensure that silos don't form.
I'm very proud of the work we have done in moving to Design-led engagements with customers. Most recently, the evolution of our Pathfinders team has resulted in a major amount of knowledge sharing, both internally and externally.
Even as a DevOps engineer, I'll always be a programmer at heart. At nearForm I get to be both because I'm still part of the dev team. I love writing small tools that save lots of time.
At nearForm we work with the latest and greatest technologies like Ansible, Terraform, Docker, and Kubernetes. Recently, I've been heavily involved in building our OpenShift expertise.
As the nearForm Events Manager, I'm responsible for making sure that conferences like NodeConf and Microservices Day continue to deliver real value for the attendees.
The thing I enjoy most about my job is the excitement that I see building in our communities as each event approaches.
At nearForm remote work is part of the firm's ethos. My family and I leveraged that characteristic of the firm to take a bit of an adventure the past few years. We've spent time at the beach on the Gulf Coast, spent a year in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and now are living in Nashville, Tennessee. The whole time we were on the journey I was able to maintain a full workload with client projects and have fun in the down time with my family.
nearForm is a unique company that enables me to exercise my skills to the full.
I work with some of the world's largest companies on designing new high performance architectures. For others I consult on solving difficult production issues.
All of this feeds directly into my conference talks and training materials.
