Needless to say, this wouldn’t be possible without a stellar engineering team. The engineering team here at GoSite works day in and day out to perfect the digital tools needed to grow and efficiently manage a small business. It takes passion, hard work, and both analytical and creative thinking to develop a user-friendly, highly customizable platform.
So whether you’re considering applying to join this incredible team, or about to pursue a career in software engineering, we collected some insights from three of our engineers to show you around.
Meet the Team
As with all of GoSite’s departments, the engineering team is made up of a friendly group of people with unique backgrounds. GoSite values unique ideas and varying levels of experience since they help create well-rounded solutions for our customers—so if you interview for GoSite, don’t be afraid to share your story!
Here are a few of our team members:
Abhiram is a mobile engineer who focuses on native Android application development. He joined the team with five years of experience in Android development and a Master’s in Microelectronic Engineering from the Rochester Institute of Technology.
In his spare time, Abhiram enjoys traveling, watching science fiction series, playing video games, and keeping up with any new tech.
Pace is a software engineer for GoSite’s Platform. While he’s originally from Michigan, Pace moved to San Diego to study data science at the University of California, San Diego. He started his career at Gosite over two years ago as a Sales Development Representative and gradually transitioned to data science intern, growth engineer, and now, software engineer.
Fun fact about Pace, he’s lived in seven different states and outside of the country—he uses the experiences he’s gained to approach his work with a fresh perspective.
Yi is a full-stack engineer on the GoSite’s Payments team. She grew up in northeast China and later moved to the south to work. Six years ago, Yi came to the U.S. as a Chinese teacher but decided her passions were elsewhere, and pivoted her career to software development three years ago.
When she’s not creating innovative solutions for small business owners, Yi enjoys swimming, hiking, yoga, as well as traveling and exploring local foods.
