I am delighted to announce that in the past week, madKast has grown from 4 full time employees (Johann, Doug, Tony and myself) to a total of 6 full time employees with the addition of two awesome new software engineers: Alex Grach and Jon Legendre.
Jon and Alex will be instrumental in helping us build madKast into a robust and multi-faceted company over the coming months. We have lots of stellar ideas for new and exciting directions we'd like to take madKast in and now adding two people on the technical side of things will immensely help this effort. In fact, stay tuned because we are going to have big news in the next couple of weeks. I'll give you a hint, think: world's best blog analytics.
Alex describes himself as a 10-year Boulder local who moved out here for the "music and mountains." Upon locating to Boulder, Alex went back to school and received a B.S. in Computer Science from CU Boulder.
Jon, like Alex, moved to Colorado 7 years ago and attended the Metropolitan State College in Denver, where received a B.S. in Computer Science. He spent the last three years working at a video and audio analytics company doing both software development and business analysis. He is married, and he and his wife, Summer, are expecting their first child in March. He adds that they have a "very naughty cat named Milo."
Please join us in giving a warm welcome to our two newest madKast members. We're so glad to have them working with us!
