Daniel Jay Haskin

I have a gorgeous wife and three kids: two daughters and one son. I enjoy reading man pages, novels, web pages, and the occasional academic paper. My hobby is my profession; it is difficult to tell sometimes why I am doing something, whether because I am paid or because I enjoy it.

I’m really good at solving problems involving unfamiliar technologies. Often when building or deploying software, the devil is often in the details. I am good at clearing away the obstacles surrounding the release of a product and creating a maintainable, scalable pipeline so that the product can move through to production or release.

I am deeply passionate about getting things done the right way. I work hard on keeping up to date on the greater community and try to find better ways of fixing problems at work. I am active in the open source community and I value working with open source developers and tools. I am also quite happy to use proprietary software when the need arises.

I am self-motivated and I work hard. I am also a solid team player, willing to help newer team members ramp up and also to serve as a solid resource for my teammates who are more experienced. I really appreciate direction and mentoring from good leaders. I am passionate for contributing to group efforts and doing my part for the win.

I like taking pride in my work and hope that by working hard I can benefit the world at large. I hope to do that through excellent service.
