Like any great team, ours is full of passionate people. Everyone brings their unique set of multi-disciplinary skills to help craft every project from the ground up. It's not hard to be the best at what you do, when you don't want to do ANYTHING ELSE!
Founder & CEO,
Robert "The One" started writing software at 12 years old, and founded PhD in the 1990's at the age of 18. His philosophy is that working hard/playing hard, honesty and pursuing your true passion will lead to success and happiness.
John "Big Putt" Driscoll is the chief rainmaker, a dynamic speaker and scary predictor of technology futures yet to come. You haven't completed your trip to PhD without a visit to John's invisible office. Simply put, John is the best at what he does.
User Experience Director,
Jason "Jay" is a magician on ui/ux with a rare blend of tech talents that make him an x factor at PhD. When he's not plotting world domination with a mobile app idea, you can probably find him in a pub drinking some new beer that nobody can pronounce.
Certified Scrum Mistress,
Christie "Team Mom" not only babysits all of us on a daily basis, but happens to be ridiculously good at managing company finances. She is the right hand (and left hand) in key operations of PhD Labs. There isn't a more reliable or hard working person named Christie in the company.
Certified Scrum Master,
Todd "The Enforcer" keeps everything on track, on time, and all good. His law enforcement background, tattooed arms and muscle bound physique (3% body fat…no joke) is a constant reminder for everyone to stay on task…except on video game competition days.
Lead Systems Engineer,
Michael "MJ" is the office wizard. If you need something solved, resolved, hacked, cracked, fixed, or otherwise patched – he's your guy. MJ's aptitude for tech is off the charts and his advice is always valued, just don't ever ask him "what's better – Linux or Windows?"
Brittney "Harlem Shake" Harden not only tears up the dance floor with her hip hop training, she also has an incredible devotion to customer service. By day, Brittney uses her OCD to keep PhD moving forward. She loves hiking, golfing, and hanging with her dog Kona (but not all at the same time). Brittney's World is always a fun place to visit.
Johnnie "Minnie Mouse" has the distinguished honor of being the best non-verbal communicator in the office. We've discovered that if we give her enough coffee, she is like a mini locomotive capable of blasting through work at a non-human pace. As a passionate tech news junkie (and new found coffee lover), Johnnie has no problem "Talking Nerdy".
Simon ("The Vampire") is a dedicated family man by day, and uber coder by night. When he is not building Lego worlds with his son, he can be found playing chess or standing in line 2 days early for the next version of Halo (we're pretty sure he secretly pretends his car is a Warthog). Around here, CSS means "Come See Simon" - enough said.
Senior Network Engineer,
Kent ("Grizzly") Behrends should be on your short list of people to have with you when stranded on a remote island. HAM radio operator, flight aficionado, and avid outdoor survivalist – oh, and did we mention he's a computer whisperer for anything that speaks binary?
Future Android Developer,
PhD is on the hunt for experienced Android developers. If you have a Google Android logo tattooed somewhere on your body, please mention it. Bonus points awarded. If not, that's ok too - we welcome talented people who have a true passion for what they do. Send us your resume and cover letter to setup an interview.
Future iOS Developer,
We need iOS developers who don't settle for functional software, instead pushing themselves to make the incredible. If you’re looking for a great place to bring your skills, then follow the instructions below.
