It's not every day in the tech industry that you come across a leader who combines deep technical expertise with genuine empathy and care for those that he leads. Eddie is that leader. His exceptional knowledge and deep understanding of programming concepts are only matched by his uncanny ability to create a work environment where trust, camaraderie, and open communication abound.
Eddie is a wonderful manager who has a true passion for user experience and design thinking! Not only is he an empathetic leader, but he truly cares about the people he works with. He strives to push innovative thinking and makes sure that the needs of the user are the priority in every project.
How someone is to work with is just as important as what they can do. Here is what some of my co-workers have said about working with me.
Eddie is an excellent leader, not just in terms of his work with his direct reports, but also serving as a strong promoter of collaboration between tech, design, and product management. His command of underlying technical realities meant he is consistently ahead of the game in terms of proposing innovative development solutions and setting the stage for our platform to grow more efficiently in the future. Not satisfied with the status quo, Eddie was instrumental in helping to restructure our teams and processes in a way that allowed us to quadruple our release cadence and spur a new era of crossfunctional teamwork.
Eddie is a great problem solver and is constantly exploring innovative/fringe techniques to better service his company and their clients. However, Eddie's greatest asset is his character. He would often work tirelessly to meet a deadline or delight a client and could do so joyfully and effectively. His humble nature will be the first thing you notice after meeting him and will strike you more after you get to see his work. Lastly, Eddie's positive attitude can uplift both internal team members and the clients he serves, even in the direst of circumstances.
A user first thinker! Eddie has taken a user centered approach to the projects we have worked on together. Animations were thoughtfully planned out to ensure the user knew where they are, where they came from and where they are going. His efforts greatly increased the navigational experience in an efficient and cost effective way. He knows the value a good experience can bring works hard to create that for the user
Working with Eddie the past 2 years has been a great experience! Always eager to assist and never without a positive attitude, he made work fun and is the embodiment of a team player. Eddie is a breath of fresh air in a world where developers and other teams often struggle to communicate. As a QA analyst, I rarely saw Eddie without a solution.
