We've been bulking up our development team recently and have another new employee to welcome: Travis Anderson! A Ruby on Rails aficionado, this talented dev has us counting our lucky stars.
Travis' obsession with computers began at 10 years old and hasn't dwindled a bit since. Completely self-taught, he snagged a job at the University of Arkansas and eventually became the Director of Technology at their National Office for Research on Measurement and Evaluation Systems. After deciding to focus his efforts on programming, specifically Agile and Extreme methodologies, he made the move to Hashrocket. Travis also spent some time at Acumen Brands before settling in with the crew here at Big Cartel.
Travis and his wife and cat recently relocated to Seattle where he's enjoying running, visiting the local record stores, and hunting for a new bike. He's deeply passionate about the DIY ethos and music -- he was in the punk and hardcore scenes of the not so distant past. He also rallies around projects for social change, like Food Not Bombs. Help us welcome Travis, he's ready to use his developer powers to support artists, musicians, and makers.
