Hi there! I'm Michael Need, a devout Christian from Indy, IN, USA! I have been blessed with a beautiful wife and 2 amazing boys, and I hope to honor that in every positive attitude and every interaction. I walk with God and trust in my Lord, Jesus Christ to light my way! Visit ChristWorxMe (new project) for more!
I currently work as at RSI (Revenue Solutions Inc) as a Principal Solutions Engineer and still dabble as a freelance Software Engineer and Innovation Coach. At my 9-5 I work for a great company, and write software used by ferderal and state government (Treasury, IRS, DOR). I also find joy in tutoring job seekers, new talent and those who are trying to transition into technology (CS students, ex-military etc). I believe we must place a renewed priority on our innovators and contributors. I am always humbly encouraged working with people to properly steward the opportunities I gave been given. I am edified by the successes I can help others to share in as they learn to use their minds and hands to build a quality secular life for themselves.
God literally encourages us to enjoy the work of our hands. I believe I have been blessed to have done this for over 25 years and hope to help others enjoy the same benefits. While I do this free of charge, I am not always available. But... I WILL help you get hired!
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. Furthermore, I like to let people be who they are! Perhaps we should all be allowed to become MORE than we currently are!
More than anything else, I love God and my family. I believe God is above us, above our ways and still has revealed Himself to us in a triune nature. God is my best friend and has been there for me through it all, and my life had it's share of ups and downs. I am saved, reborn and make every endeavor to turn aside from a life without God. I speak with Him daily in prayer and these quiet times beat out and frankly prevail over any hobby I could try to dig up.
I am married and have 2 teenage boys (young men) and this gift has been the biggest joy of my earthly life. Brandee, Brodey, Caeden and I enjoy spending time together, just being present. We enjoy traveling around the USA and love animals.
