Join us in welcoming Ryan Bloom to Kipsu as our a Software Engineer. Prior to Kipsu, Ryan was building ecommerce system integrations at SPS Commerce. Outside of work, you'll find Ryan homebrewing, running, and playing Pokemon Go.
What drew you to Kipsu in contrast to other companies?
What were some things you noticed about the Kipsu team during your first week?
What challenges are you looking forward to tackling in your work at Kipsu?
What is your favorite Kipsu core value?
"Play the long game," it's always tempting to chase the short term goals or "quick fixes" for problems in the code, only to find yourself having to go back and do twice as much work. There's a nice mix here between moving fast, but also being thoughtful.
If you could meet any person for a chat over a shared dinner, who would you pick and why?
I'd love to have a chat with Margaret Hamilton—she pushed to get software development recognized as an engineering discipline, and her Apollo landing work set the bar for reliable software design.
