Volano Hires New Senior Developer
Volano is thrilled to welcome Senior Developer Erin Hawkins to our team today. Erin brings a great combination of relevant coding skills and the ability to lead projects and work directly with clients on comprehensive, custom software development.
We are excited to bring Erin as we continue to grow. Erin has an impressive resume and will no doubt help Volano continue to delight our clients and expand our client base. Her dart-throwing skills have yet to be determined, however, during her interview she was accompanied by her Dart Caddy who carried with him a large velvet-encased dart carrier. All communication during the interview took place between the Volano partners and Erin’s Dart Caddy which contrary to conventional wisdom, turned out to be an impressive tactical interviewing move on Erin’s part.
