Hello. I’m Corey Ogburn.
Before I was even out of high school, I had a professional programming job. After school I began contracting. Usually it was a “6 month contract to hire” kind of situation but for one reason or another I moved on to another place at the end of the contract. Maybe it was office politics, maybe the project came to a close, whatever the reason my career was filled with constant change and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I’ve worked in the financial industry a few times, GIS companies way more than I thought I would, and even pharmaceuticals for a stretch. Professionally, I’ve managed databases (SQL & NoSQL), written more backends than I can remember, and even maintained a private Ethereum network for a start up that (of course) went under. I worked full time for a contracting company with the sole purpose of going to a company and helping them finish their projects.
That’s what I’d put in my Tinder profile if I wasn’t married.
