Hi there. My name is Rob Pearson and I recently joined Octopus as a Senior Software Engineer. I'm excited to be a part of the team working to make Octopus great! I think of myself as a big nerd who loves the outdoors. I've been programming for well over 10 years and I enjoy it more and more everyday. I'm from Canada originally but I've been living in Australia for almost ten years now. I'm lucky to have a beautiful wife and two awesome sons!
Professionally, I've worked in a variety of industries including transportation, energy and finance. Over the years, I've learned that I'm motivated by product development and working with customers. I love to build great products that help people! I've followed Octopus Deploy since the beginning and introduced it at a couple of past companies. I'm very keen to help build and support Octopus. One of great things about working here is that the programmers work directly with customers to help them solve product issues but also help them along their dev-ops journey. There's nothing better than receiving an email from a customer thanking you for helping them improve their team's deployment process.
On the side, I love to play with Apple products and technologies. I've shipped a transit app for the Brisbane area and I love the different technical and design challenges mobile products bring.
