User Interface Tech Lead and Product Liason

Brock Harrison Austin Barnett

When did you start working for Radancy?

December 19, 2012, as a freelancer and then July 1, 2013, as a full-time employee.

What is your current role and responsibilities?

 As a User Interface Tech Lead, my main responsibility is providing expert guidance on technical strategy and direction for supporting UI standards, often referred to as the front-end , or in layman's terms, the visual part of the websites. As a product liaison, I have the opportunity to work directly with our product team to make sure that the tools meet our clients' needs so we can deliver an implementation that meets and sometimes exceeds expectations. It also makes me uniquely qualified to be a subject matter expert (SME) and provide guidance on the creation of and modification of internal processes between teams.

What does your department do?

 I am a part of the implementation department also known as the delivery department, and we take the work that the creative department designs and turns the mocks into the career websites you see on the web. We also personalize job descriptions by programing AJDs which requires the team to the simple data from clients feed and programmatically add information about that job. While programming the career site to visually have the brand of our clients we also have the goal of trying to keep those parts of the site editable via the CMS.  My department also takes the designs for the emails and codes them to work inside Radancy tools like CRM.

What initially attracted you to apply for your current position at Radancy?

I didn’t originally apply; I had an agency looking for positions for me; they passed along my resume and this position was a perfect match for my current skills. Eventually, I did apply when a full-time opportunity became available as Radancy offered plenty of room for me to expand those skills and three promotions later I am still here.

What do you think is the best part about working at Radancy?

 I have learned more about Web development here than I ever learned in college. What’s great about this job is we are always striving to be the best in our field. So, every day there is a new challenge and every day I learn something new.

What's at least one interesting fact about yourself that your coworkers don't know?

I have two middle names. And, if you didn’t notice by my picture, I am into cosplay also known as costume play. Also in my free time, I make YouTube videos about making video games which I sometimes release for free and I also blog about website design and development.
