A couple of months ago the Big Cartel family got together for to create fun memories and to hunker down on some big projects in the works. When most of our time is spent together via the internet, it’s nice to have actual human interaction with everyone and be reminded of how awesome all of our co-workers really are.
For this showcase, we’d like you to meet one of these awesome Big Cartelers, Scott Burton, one of our oh-so-important software engineers. He’s been kind enough to answer a few of our questions and talk about some of his favorite Big Cartel stores.
BC: For the record, please state your name and occupation at Big Cartel.
SB: Scott Phillip Burton, software engineerTopshelf Records: I like this label, because in addition to a great looking site, they are doing cool stuff with record packages for their bands. More labels should follow their lead.
BC: How long have you been with Big Cartel?
SB: I started in February of 2010, so close to two-and-a-half years. Wow! Goes by so quick!Telegramme: This shop has a great design and some really awesome posters from bands I like. Some of these need to be on my walls soon!
BC: What has been your favorite project to work on?
SB: I have to say my favorite project (really my second fave, but the other one I can’t mention because it’s still a secret) would have to be the new billing system. Offering our users an alternative way to pay is awesome.Bandito Design Co: I came across Bandito after we launched our newest theme, Sidecar, and these guys are doing a great job using it. Their poster, The Duel, is destined for one of my walls.
BC: When you’re not making magic with code, how do you spend your time?
SB: I spend most of my time with my wife, three daughters and our four year old son. Taking them to swim practice, swim meets, junior theater rehearsals and plays, going on family bike rides (when it is under 100 degrees here in Bakersfield, CA), playing Minecraft or Skyrim with my oldest daughter, and playing with Hot Wheels and Legos with my son - whew! I also sing and play bass in a band called Tanked, we are currently working on our first full-length vinyl LP.
