Meet our New Full Stack Engineer, Kāhea Hendrickson
This summer we are ramping up our Development capacity with the addition of two new Full Stack Engineers to our team. This week we’re introducing Kāhea Hendrickson, one of our new staffers. He will be supporting our development of the PARTNER CPRM and PARTNERme, a Person-Centered Network Tool. We asked him a few questions this week to get to know him a bit better as he gets started. We hope you enjoy it.
Tell Us About Yourself!
I was born on Oʻahu and raised in Utah. My father was an American volleyball player/skeet shooter that loved the beach and his children. My mother is a Hawaiian/Filipino hula dancer/nurse and the first woman in Hawaiʻi to ever take high school shop class. I currently reside on Ka Pae ʻAina o Hawaiʻi.
What is your new position and what do you hope to accomplish in it?
I chose Visible Network Labs because it truly is a people-centered tech company with a great team and product. My title is Full Stack Developer (aka Computer Spellcaster), and I’m here to implement tech strategies that enable growth for the future.
Who is a significant mentor in your life?
My Uncle is my mentor. He taught me about hard work, family history, and human nature. He also tells some of the best stories.
Where is your favorite place to visit on vacation?
I like to vacation in the state of Utah in the winter with my sister eating, drinking, laughing, and snowboarding.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be, and why?
What do you enjoy doing away from work?
Welcome to the Team!
With the help of Kāhea and the rest of our Development Team, we will be able to innovate more quickly and effectively when it comes to our network analysis tools, training, and services. We are excited to see what this amazing team accomplishes in the coming years. Welcome to the team Kāhea!
Map, Measure, and Strengthen Social Support with PARTNERme!
