Hi there! My name is Zac Braddy, and I am a Lead Software Engineer with about eight years of experience. I'm super jazzed by great tech and awesome architecture. In case you're wondering how much I like doing the things I do with computers, well to put it simply; I'm super obsessed by tech. Put this way; sometimes, I feel like I might be a mutant code monkey sent back from the future.
But it's not just a good tech stack that excites me, when it comes down to it, what really excites me is working with great teams to deliver quality software, on time, to people who can use it to shape our future—and having fun while doing it!
What I do
My varied experience has seen me working with a lot of different types of tech and engineering software in many different shapes and sizes. It's also allowed me to practice pragmatically delivering software, and this has unlocked my ability to produce software at a high quality and in a timely fashion.
I've spent a fair amount of time collecting practices and techniques for building highly scalable, maintainable and extensible software architecture that adheres to SOLID and DDD principles as well as others. I've also learned from experience that architecture is more than just stringing together boxes on a whiteboard in the right order.
I owe a great deal of my success to the people who've invested their time and knowledge in me. I feel strongly that to honour the effort these people have put into helping me succeed, that I must to pay it forward and help the next wave of software engineers to achieve their goals. I love to help developers behind me in this journey to come along with me.
Delivering software projects to the right level of quality and on-time is vital for any business but in startups like ones I've been helping to succeed this is especially true. Through good project management and providing the right level of support and encouragement to the teams I've worked with, I've been able to help lead them towards the best possible results for both the business and individual team members.
