I am really excited to be writing this blog right now, and you should be just as excited to be reading it because that means I didn’t break the website just yet.
My name is Jacob Pawlak, I am a former college student, race car driver (once but it counts), computer science teacher, and Blackjack champion (among friends). Today, I am opening another chapter in my life with Untitled as the newest web developer and I could not be more exuberant! With my background in web development and data analytics, the Untitled team thought I’d be a great addendum to the team.
While in college at the University of Kentucky, I studied Computer Science and Linguistics, and worked as a web admin/dev for several of the departments around campus. Aside from building fun and functional websites, I learned how to be a good linguist and started mixing my two fields – the results were cool sentiment analysis machines, chatbots, and corpora-stuffed webapps. At my previous job, I built curriculum for web development bootcamps and the online assessment material to go with them. While in the realm of academia myself, I discovered my passion for education and development.
I feel like all of this will help me on this awesome Untitled journey with Aaron, Connor, and Kramer. Personally, I love startups and the tech industry, so when I made it a point to stay in that career path, I was ever grateful to have found these guys and actually feel at home working here.
I’m looking forward to the cool stuff our team will build, all the innovations and solutions we are going to create, but most importantly, I’m looking forward to the coming bourbon & mezcal bar.
