Head Shot of Josh Gorton

Josh Gorton

Software-Engineer

Full-Stack Developer

I’ve always enjoyed a good puzzle or a tricky problem that needs to be solved. Working remotely as a full-stack developer, I get to have fun solving those puzzles with tools like JavaScript, React, Redux, Node, Python, Django, etc. Sometimes I will sit down at the piano and play a Beethoven sonata, or maybe an old church hymn, or a show tune to something like La La Land. It helps me imagine new and better solutions to those tricky puzzles and helps my team ship a better product.
