I'm Nick Bender

I build and lead teams that develop great software.

I strongly value a growth-based mindset, systems-level thinking, pragmatic understanding of trade-offs, and emotionally-honest communication.

Lately, my team is building better ways for people to create and share video at Wistia. I've also worked at Huckleberry, MyLife,IBM, A10 Networks, and Uceem.

Ruby and js are where I spend the majority of my time.

I'm most likely to respond to email but also can be found on twitter, github, and linkedin.

In my free time, I enjoy far too many hobbies, including cooking, coffee, backpacking, headphones, custom mechanical keyboards, and just about all forms of gaming, even if I am still hard stuck on league.
