Developers | The Coding Wizards

The foundation of our business—our software developers, engineers and programmers—come from every walk of life and every possible level of experience.

Well-versed in every aspect of the software development life cycle, our devs are programming polyglots fluent in dozens of technologies including web application frameworks, mobile platforms, database systems, cloud computing services and deployment best practices.

Whether they’re cutting new software from the latest technologies or resuscitating an aging business-critical monolith, our team can decipher, develop and deliver with a few clicks and a caffeinated soda.

Jeanae DuBois | Executive Director of Growth Marketing

Jeanae DuBois is an accomplished marketing and branding leader with over 20+ years in the industry. Joining Shift3 Technologies in September 2019, Jeanae manages an integrated marketing team, focusing on inbound and outbound marketing strategy, campaign execution, branding, client development, public relations, corporate events and internal sales enablement.

A proud graduate of California Polytechnic University, Jeanae received her Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) focused in Marketing from California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo.

When Jeanae isn’t commanding a growing marketing team, you can find her going 50mph on a mountain bike in the middle of California’s Sierra Nevada mountains, backpacking with her son near a shimmering lake or playing fetch with one of her three dogs.

Project Managers | Lickity Sprint

Armed with extraordinary communication skills, the motivational wherewithal of Tony Robbins, and the gift of budget and scope management, our collective of task masters are the dream team of project overseers. Our project management team is responsible for guiding each initiative through from ideation to implementation in an agile-friendly environment—and they love it. Our PMs supervise delivery teams, they know development in and out, and they handle it all with style and grace.

Quality Assurance | The Testers and Double Checkers

Our whizz-bang Quality Assurance Avengers assemble to test all projects during every phase of the software development lifecycle. They are tasked with identifying and documenting all inconsistencies and weaknesses, analyzing the results, and providing the team with a complete report on product quality—all with the goal of creating software that is user-friendly both in terms of functionality and design.

QA diligently monitors the development process, ensures ADA compliance, prevents bugs in the system before they hit a user’s hands and ensures the quality of the developed product.

Business Development | The Networking Quickdraws

Our business development team are our cowboys (okay, cowpersons), if you will. They wander the wild west of marketplaces and territories to build strategic partnerships, helping to develop and implement growth opportunities within and between organizations and Shift3. Our team networks and connects the dots for companies trying to approach a digital transformation.

They dare to dream with business owners and guide them through the Shift3 customer journey. They have holsters full of solutions, canteens full of ideas and they’ll lead you to the technology promised land.

Chris Hawkins | Executive Director of Development

Chris Hawkins has been building web applications for more than two decades. He’s successfully completed projects for companies as large as Fortune 500s and as small as mom-and-pop shops. Chris has spent his career as an independent consultant helping businesses create and use software tools to improve processes, cut costs and strengthen internal collaboration. He also has a strong reputation handling crisis projects and client management. 

Chris is experienced in the Microsoft stack of technologies – Windows, ASP.NET (both C# and VB.NET) WebForms and MVC, SQL Server (and SSRS), SharePoint and even older tech like ASP 3.0 and VB6.

Marketing | The Visibility Makers

Think of Shift3 Marketing as a Voltron of sorts. Every limb has a seperate function and they all form one magical force that promotes Shift3 to help drive sales. This team puts a laser focus on inbound and outbound marketing strategies, integrated campaign execution, branding, client development, public relations, corporate events and internal sales enablement.

They bring visibility to Shift3 in the marketplace, they create loads of original content, and they love a cold beer after work.

Solutions Engineers | The Tacticians

Our solutions engineers work hand-in-hand with our business development team to carefully scope, mindfully build and thoroughly orchestrate the development gameplan for each incoming project. Balancing both technical expertise and business acuity, each project is carefully analyzed to solve both what should be built and how to build it—and most importantly, how that fits into a client’s budget and timeline. Our solutions engineers are basically all Russell Crowe’s character in A Beautiful Mind.
