“I founded Idea Works in 1981 to develop and market social science computing programs and services to researchers and educators. For over a quarter of a century Idea Works has established an international reputation for innovative products, quality services, a social conscience, and integrity.”
“My passion is building things. On a day-to-day basis that includes database design, web design, system architecture, and coding our backend qualitative analysis technology. Along with that I manage technical interactions with clients and work on internal processes to help us work better. We’re good at learning, so if we don’t know it today, we will tomorrow.”
“I’m an advocate for outstanding user experiences. I help make sure each clever Idea Works innovation is something you’ll love to use. This means chatting with clients, sketching prototypes, fostering collaboration, and arranging pixels in an effort to make strategically sound design decisions.”
“I became a software developer because I love solving challenging puzzles. The great thing about Idea Works is the variety of problems I get to solve. Each day is different and can range from database design and qualitative analysis to web design and user interfaces. At Idea Works we are truly small and agile, which means every day can bring new and interesting problems to tackle.”
“My primary focus is operations management and business development, but I’m also involved in everything from tech support and administration, to product development and marketing. I enjoy working at the cutting edge of text analytics. Uncovering the myriad of ways people communicate the human experience is both exciting and challenging, but also a supremely unifying and enriching experience.”
Idea Works is a small team of software developers, designers and product leaders who build text analytics solutions in markets from education to politics and public policy.
