Evan Yeatts (Friend of the College - Spouse), Software Engineer, Bloomberg LP.

I work to support the editorial platform that drives www.bloomberg.com and build software systems that drive user engagement and advertising products. As a Tech Lead my day-to-day is split between writing code myself and my intimate involvement in the planning and coordination of my team’s work. The balancing act between personal development time and team coordination is what makes my job challenging and rewarding, and both aspects involve a deep technical understanding of the applications and systems that make up Digital Media. On the technical side I get to work with technologies like Node.js, Elasticsearch, Ruby on Rails, Hadoop, and Java to tackle problems with machine learning, search, and distributed programming. Much more than any particular technology, the most exciting part of my work is understanding and designing the ways that these technologies work together to construct something complex, powerful, and even beautiful. REQUIREMENTS: Student will have to sign an intellectual property non-disclosure agreement.
