Joey Gross has been with Ignitro for almost two years now and has already made a name for himself. As a backend developer he’s had the chance to work on a variety of client projects and gain valuable experience that makes him an asset to our team and our clients’ teams.
I went through South Stark Career Academy for 2 years. I then moved on to Pittsburgh Technical College and graduated with an Associates degree in Computer Science in 2016. After schooling, I did consulting for a digital marketing agency for about a year and a half. Then I started working here and can truly say that I love what I do.
I love the flexibility and being challenged to learn new things. Everyday I am either learning a new skill or improving what I already know so I can do it better.
My favorite project I’ve ever worked on at Ignitro would have to be for our client, EZ Storage. I did the location finder and map for their website. The project allowed me to learn a lot about Google Maps and how to use them on client websites. I also was able to build out the storage calculator for this client and enjoyed being challenged by something entirely different than what I usually work on.
If I wasn’t working here, I would be working at another company doing Software Development or Backend Web Development. It’s my passion. There is also a good chance I wouldn’t be living in Ohio anymore.
My go-to tool is stackoverflow. When I’m having an issue, it’s very likely someone else has had a similar issue and can help me solve the problem. It’s great to have support from a community of similar-minded individuals.
As of now, I would have to say my favorite podcast would be The Misfits Podcast. It is a group of influential YouTubers that got together to talk about their growth and success on YouTube as well as their experiences together.
