Would you like to know more?


Hi! I'm Colin Bridges

I'm a career backend engineer who's done a little bit of everything. I like programming on the JVM, but more generally I like writing maintainable code that solves business problems.

I live in beautiful Southeast Portland with my wife and our four crazy pets.

Outside of work, I like listening to metal, playing Magic: The GatheringTM, watching sports, and attempting various home improvement projects.

Inside of work, I like...

  • solving business problems with code. That's why we do it!
  • working with teammates to build a fun, inclusive engineering culture.
  • mentoring junior engineers, especially those new to backend engineering.
  • establishing standards and building automation.
  • folding useful functional programming concepts into everyday code.
