Katy Welyczko - Software Developer

As a puzzle master and devoted coder, I love working with new languages and problems. I am highly analytical and process-oriented with in-depth knowledge of APIs and testing through extensive QA experience. I thrive in areas that need process improvement and a focus on efficiency from 5+ years of dedicated technical project management. I pick up new technologies quickly and work with my team to produce products customers love.
