A little nonsense now and then, is relished by the wisest men.

Autumn’s previous experience ranges from managing servers, to creating a project management website for computer science students, to supplementing development staff at several small and large companies. The common denominator in her job experience is designing creative solutions to problems. She likes to view each challenge as a puzzle, which, coincidentally, she also spent time designing while working at an escape room.
Ludum Dare, a 48-hour game-making challenge, has been a staple in Autumn’s free time since her time as a student. After moving to Oklahoma from the East Coast, she turned to Meetup to find a Ludum Dare team in need of an extra pair of hands and met two of amshot’s developers. After hearing her Ludum Dare teammates speak highly of their workplace over a long, sleepless 48 hours, she ended up filling our open developer position and now enjoys amshot’s corporate-family feel and culture of encouragement every day.
Besides competing in Ludum Dare, Autumn spends her free time building robots and smart gadgets, especially if they are eco-friendly or look like magic tricks (like her “floating” lightbulb creation, made with a magnet and a wireless charger). She also regularly serenades her wife and two cats on one of the many instruments she plays.
