We are excited to introduce our newest Senior Developer, Tyler! Tyler started his professional career as a Software Engineer in Nebraska before making the move to Denver, CO where he currently resides. After working for Indaba Group for close to five years as a front-end developer, Tyler made the move to Senior Developer at Digital Operative and we could not be happier to have him join our crew!

Tyler holds a BA in Computer Science from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and has been a developer since 2013! Outside of work, Tyler has DJ’d for nine years, snowboards in the winter months, and attends as many live concerts as possible each year. He also enjoys cooking shows, Top Chef and Master Top Chef to be exact, and playing Magic: The Gathering! If you don’t know what Magic: The Gathering is… Google it #worthit.
