Paul is our resident Bermudan ex-pat, but over the years, he’s gotten used to the cold temperatures of Wisconsin. In between ice fishing and playing with his kids, he somehow finds time to rock and roll with Pressable’s development team.
Where are you located?
Born in Bermuda, but now live in Exeland, Wisconsin. My wife is from Wisconsin and we decided to live in here to be closer to her family.
How long have you worked for Pressable?
Since February of 2019.
What is your favorite part about working for Pressable?
Love the 100% remote work. Also love the people I work with! First time I have been at a company where the whole company feels like a single team. We work together well.
Is there a piece of code or feature you built/pushed that made a big impact for Pressable customers? What was it and how did it go?
I feel like everything I have done so far has had a positive impact on our customers inside and outside the company. I have helped make support and sales’s jobs just a little bit easier. I have helped our outside customers by fixing bugs and implementing features related to subscriptions and billing.
When you aren’t pressing at Pressable, what are you doing?
I am either fishing, writing code, or enjoying (most times) my kids activities.
If you had the power to change one thing to make the world a better place – what would it be?
Have everyone treat each other with respect and love.
If you could work remotely from anywhere, where would it be?
Home, or beach, or fishing boat.
Pandora or Spotify and what is your favorite station/playlist?
I listen to either Pandora and music I own through (what I consider) high quality head phones. Sony or Bose are my favorites.
Mac or PC?
Have Linux, Mac and Windows, but Mac is my favorite when writing code.
Don’t have a favorite tool really, just those that I use more than others. I like Vim, but I’m not a master at it, just preference due to not using an IDE in a long time. But if I had to choose my favorite IDE it would be Visual Studio.
Do you have a life hack or piece of advice/tip/trick for being a remote worker?
Don’t over work. It seems very easy to over work when working remote because you never actually leave the office. Have to be disciplined enough to work, but also disciplined enough to know when to stop.
