TJ Downes' Summary

These are the things that are important to me in my career: Working with efficient and proficient people to build usable and beautiful solutions that people enjoy using. Providing value to users and stakeholders through innovation and technical excellence. Maintaining a reputation for being technically adept, collaborative, and having a good work ethic. Constant improvement, both technically and personally. Making time for myself and my family.

It's important to me to stay ahead of industry trends by educating myself on new platforms and tools, and learning what leaders in the industry are creating, how they are creating it, and why they are successful.

I want to work with a team who understands why best practices exist, accepts that standards exist for a reason, and strive to create the best solutions they can, because it gives us a sense of accomplishment. I want to work with organizations who realize that some of their best knowledge is contained within people who work with the clients, organizations, and users who make use of their apps. I want to work with people who know that having a ★working★ process is critical, and strive to improve that process regularly.

It all boils down to one simple statement: No bullshit, let's just build awesome stuff.
