Meet Team Captricity: Josh Paulsen

February 25, 2015 by Josh Paulsen

Hello world! My name is Josh, and I began my life here at Captricity as an intern. I was lucky enough to meet my colleague, Yori, in an operating systems class at UC Berkeley and somehow convinced him I knew what I was doing. Now I'm a full-stack engineer, and I am currently moonlighting as a field engineer, interfacing with clients to help design and implement the tools needed to integrate Captricity into their workflow.

Prior to my current work, I was building internal tools to integrate our front-end tests with Django's test framework, which provided me with ample opportunities to complain about testing Javascript. Thankfully, I work with an awesome group of people who are passionate about what they do here at Captricity. This is enough to make my Javascript testing woes melt away.

When I'm not working, I can be found discussing sandwiches, wishing it would rain more and occasionally thinking about learning to play the piano. I also recently brushed up on my woodworking skills by building Captricity’s flagship cornhole set with my engineering colleague, Nick Jalbert. While the set may not be beautiful, we both walked away with all of our fingers. That, in my book, is success.
