Test Double has had the pleasure of working with Myk across a number of projects, and we wouldn't hesitate to pull him into another opportunity again. Our company prides itself on building software with high levels of quality and Myk aligns with our philosophies there very well. His technical skills are obviously first rate, but more importantly he is completely at ease communicating with business owners, stakeholders and management about the approach, priorities, timelines and other constraints that we face on our projects. We are confident that when working with Myk, even on some of our most challenging projects, that he will delight our customers in the end.
Myk is a one-of-a-kind developer, technologist and human being. Skai was my first software development job, and I literally couldn't have asked for a better mentor than Myk. No only did he patiently walk me through the fundamentals of programming and web application architecture, but I learned every day from the example he set: carefully crafted code, clean and comprehensive unit tests, elegantly architected systems, and a deep-rooted kindness that permeates all his interactions. I feel incredibly lucky to have had a mentor like Myk.
Introducing Myk into our team gave us a much broader perspective on our codebases. He regularly pushed us to think one abstraction step further, and to consider all potential ramifications of our work. Keeping this up in a fast paced environment is no easy feat. This made him a great colleague, a solid engineer and a good person to spend time with.
Myk helped our team untangle a big thorny mess of a platform, and brought it to a stable, well-tested, and maintainable place. He's thorough, committed, and kind, and loves to talk about big ideas. Best of all, he cares deeply about the impact his work has on people, and his thoughtfulness carries through in everything he does.
Myk is a very strong engineer who is capable of going deep on big problems. In addition to helping me understand technical problems, he has taught me many things about being human.
