Mark Miller

Software Engineer
Hi there, I'm Mark. I'm a programmer, developer, engineer - whatever you want to call it. I write code, build systems, solve problems. My current work is in .NET, and I love it. C# is a beautiful language and a down right joy to code in. I do full stack development, but am primarily interested in working with back-end systems; specifically, the design and implementation of domain models and APIs for enterprise applications. I'm a senior developer at ERI, Inc., the largest electronic recycler in the world. We recycle upwards of 250 million pounds of e-waste per year, and my team builds and maintains the operational management software that makes it all work.

What I do

Programmer

Programming is the best part of what I get to do every day. It's a true passion and I can't get enough. Don't tell anybody, but I'd do it for free.

Developer

Fun as it may be, the core of effective software development is not coding. The real work is investigation, research, planning, and design.

Problem solver

Cheesy, yeah. But I don't care. Solving problems is the constant, fundamental part of everything I do. I love it, and I'm really good at it.

Core Values

Integrity

Not just honesty, but authenticity. Directness. Confidence. Trustworthiness beyond question.

Tenacity

Accomplishing the impossible, and pushing past perceived limits is a high. Tenacity is the addiction.

Ownership

If I put my name on something, it's mine. Everything I do, small or large, is a reflection on me - and I want it to shine.

Optimism

No matter the context, there is always a positive outlook. There is always a way forward. All problems are solvable.
