Peter Cowan · Software Developer

Summary

I am the lead developer at a small nonprofit dedicated to using the Internet to generate new charitable giving. I have 10 years of experience developing web based applications in Java and Javascript. As team lead I am responsible for establishing our development processes, interacting with clients to define project requirements and collaborating with the business team on long term goals.

Objective

I am looking for a position working within the web development stack in or around downtown Portland. I would prefer an agile oriented development environment, but the aspects I care about most are continuous integration, smaller teams, and short release cycles.
