Accolades
person Nicholas Navarra
Joe is a brilliant full-stack engineer with a proven track record of success. He is highly skilled in a plethora of programming languages. Joe’s grit is unmatched and he can bring small to enterprise level products to life. One strength is Joe’s ability to deal with conflicting priorities in high-pressure situations. He never loses his cool which is one of the reasons he stands out. I had the pleasure of working with him at a startup. He trained me in product design (UX/UI) and pushed my knowledge of IT and business to new heights. As a leader, he is always available to help. Joe also allows you to have autonomy on projects, which keeps employees happy and helps them to grow. He has helped mentor and train junior to mid-level developers who are now successful. I saw some of the new technologies he created for a company. He was able to create a new interactive tool that was a first of its kind. I won’t be surprised if he has a unicorn in the near future. Any company that hires him is fortunate because he will be an asset.

Right from the start, I could tell that Joe was experienced, patient, and a unicorn. During the time I worked with him, I learned of and appreciated his resilient nature that was extremely necessary in a startup. He was always understanding and consistently helped me with my career progression throughout Grabit. His skills communication and management was great, given our remote environment. Joe asked all the critical questions, poked holes into everything and was a architecture wizard. He was a critical part of my personal growth and I value him as a friend. Cheers to crossing paths again professionally!

person Jeremy Brenner
Joe is hands down one of the most versatile and talented people I have ever had the pleasure to know or work with. He has an experienced, honed, and effective set of engineering skills that allow him to tackle problems all the way from complex architecture design, through to complete software. His technical ability and personality make him the type of leader you WANT to follow. Joe is always looking out for everybody on his team, and beyond his ability to create great products, he is just an excellent leader overall. He truly invests himself in everything he makes, and the people he works with. Anybody, including myself, would be lucky to have him as part of a team.
