Servant Leader, Mentor, Seasoned Software Engineer

Hi there! I'm Michael Need from Indy, IN, USA! I currently work as a Senior Software Engineering Manager at Zotec Partners. I have many years of experience creating software, mobile apps and websites for myself, my employers and for clients. My accomplishments include learning to program in many different languages/frameworks such as C#, Angular, Javascript, Node, Visual Basic, SQL, HTML and CSS (LESS or SASS) with some of my recent favorite projects involving AI and Machine Learning. My preferred languages are C# and Javascript with a focus on OOP and SOLID principles.

While I certainly love technology, I am just as enthusiastic regarding the enjoyment of mentoring, sharing and educating. I am a "people-person" and this combination of skillsets allows me to uniquely contribute to my company's big picture successes! And the personal satisfaction of coaching and encouraging individual development continues to keep me well grounded. Likewise I am continually humbled and inspired when I see potential groomed to prosperity.

In a leadership role I always take care of my teams like family while exceeding the business' needs in the most visionary way possible. While I prefer Agile over Waterfall or worse, a lack of process, I always prefer to use the methodology loosely enough so that it fits the team and helps facilitate a momentum the company can truly measure. Predictability and continuous improvement provide stability in an Agile environment.

I have been blessed with a beautiful wife and 2 amazing boys, and I hope to honor that in every positive attitude, every interaction and all my decisions.
