Daniel Carton has been part of the CIMcloud team for over a year, serving as an intern before coming on full time in January of 2017. Before joining the team, Daniel worked in a software lab at the University of South Carolina while he was working on his undergraduate and graduate degrees.
As a member of the CIMcloud Small Development Team, Daniel works with sites that are not yet live to the public doing site enhancements. He spends a large part of his days working on custom development and code base alterations, doing everything from rearranging site elements to a completely new implementation. Daniel brings a high level of expertise and has already accomplished a lot in his various roles here, and is a survivor of the the infamous Intern Nerf Assault.
Andrew Zhang is a Software Developer on our Investment team, having been in this role for 3 months and previously serving as a summer intern at Website Pipeline. During the short time in his current role, Andrew has been exploring potential routes forward and implementing prototypes to proactively identify potential stumbling blocks before they occur.
Having recently graduated from Clemson University, Andrew considers this his "first real job" but has professional experience in Software Development from freelance work (in addition to his internship with us). As a survivor of the Intern Nerf Assault of 2016, Andrew showed he has the toughness and resolve to overcome anything so we know he'll thrive on our team!
Website Pipeline celebrated 2016 with our annual Holiday Party this past Friday at Zen in downtown Greenville.
The night was filled with cold beverages, good conversation, and exceptionally lackluster dancing as Pipeliners new and old came together to bring in the new year.
This year, Eric Alexander, Neiman Schwartz, Matt Gleason and "The Original" Jack Evans were all recipients of the coveted Blue Vase Award. Based off the mentality demonstrated in the book The Go-Getter by Peter Kyne, the award is given to the top performers in the company over the last year who have demonstrated the willingness to go above and beyond, doing whatever it takes to excel in their role with the company.
Check out the pictures below for a glimpse of our awesome celebration!
Website Pipeline took the party to downtown Greenville this year
Hieu Ngo joined the Website Pipeline team 2 months ago as a Web Designer, having previously served as the Webmaster for Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System. During his first FedEx Day he brought home the infamous Cornhole Championship, striking envy in the hearts of many seasoned Pipeliners who haven't yet taken home the heralded title.
He juggles his time between designing the visual aspects of a website's user expierence to meet a client's brand standards, and doing front end development where he implements these designs through coding languages.
Hieu truly enjoys his day-to-day role at Website Pipeline and finds solace in the quote, “do what you love, and you’ll never work another day in your life.” Needless to say, we're excited he "never works" on our team and expect big things from Hieu in the future.
Michelle Pakla is a Developer at Website Pipeline and while it's only been a few weeks since joining the team, she is already showing off her skills. With an abundance of design experience in different industries, she spends most of her time here on front-end coding and designing user interfaces for websites.
As a huge fan of the original Star Trek and Twilight Zone series, Michelle has the imagination to appreciate the impossible and the intelligence to maintain her grasp on reality. Her life motto is "whatever happens, happens", and we're sure glad that she happens to work at Website Pipeline!
This past Friday, Website Pipeline got into the holiday spirit by venturing out of the office to partake in our annual shopping trip for charity.
The company showed up in full force at the local Wal-Mart, divided up into teams, and set out to find the very best gifts for families in the area.
Coolie Sheppard joined the Website Pipeline team a month ago as a Senior Systems Administrator and brings with him over 10 years of IT experience, though he's been deep in the interwebs since he was a teenager. Prior to joining the team, he was a Systems Engineer working on virtualization and security for stadiums and sports venues around the country.
Most of his time so far has been spent familiarizing himself with Website Pipeline's existing systems and networks to identify current practices and potential improvements, but he's taking on more responsibilities by the day. Passionate about security, he enjoys playing the role of Big Brother protecting employees from accidentally downloading torrents and other potentially harmful files.
An avid fan of Kung Fu flicks and 90's hip hop, Coolie brings another upbeat personality to a group that certainly doesn't lack in energy. Couple that with his belief that "everyone should give 110% in everything they do", and we know Coolie will be a Website Pipeline superstar for years to come.
Cannon Palms has only been at Website Pipeline for two short months, but he brings with him years of software development experience.
He's currently a Software Developer on the Account Management team and handles the small-medium sized custom development work needed to serve existing customers. He also looks at problems that Account Managers run into on live customer sites and evaluates potential solutions to eradicate these issues.
