Solution Architect 

Heath Murphy, HMB Thought Leader

 

Heath is a tech junky “agilist" with a PMP. A dangerous combination that’s resulted in more meetings and less code.

 

He speaks at several local conferences including StirTrek, CodePalousa and CodeMash  on whatever topic makes his cat happiest when rehearsing at home.

 

His goal in life is to nail perfect burndown charts every time. The struggle is real.

 

What is your favorite thing about working at HMB?

The people, by a far margin; we hire the best talent in town. I’d work in the trenches with any of our consultants and know we’d nail the project every time.

What is the most challenging project you've ever worked on?

My current project has an insane deadline with very few requirements defined. It’s like being in an airplane approaching the runway with no landing gear. Our teams are working frantically to design and build the gear before we hit the end of the runway. It’s certainly a challenge but also a lot of excitement around the office.

What advice would you give someone starting a career in technology?

Don’t feel like you need to know it all on day 1, you’ll have plenty of time on the job. Our field is extremely large, constantly changing so be ready for an entire career of training and retraining as new technologies emerge.
