Senior Strategist & Developer, Grand Rapids

Micah Alles

As Senior Strategist, I work with every project team at Atomic to support, share, and maintain best practices for our agile product development process including project management, client team composition, automated testing, continuous integration and continuous delivery support.

I've been with Atomic Object since 2002 when I joined as a developer intern while finishing my Computer Science degree at Grand Valley State University. For over ten years I developed desktop, front-end, back-end, and mobile apps in a wide array of tech stacks including Ruby, C, Java, C#, JavaScript, Objective-C, and more using Vim and the command line as my preferred IDE relying heavily on automation for testing, release building, and deployment.

Over the past few years I've transitioned from developing and leading projects to supporting project teams and their team leads across all of our offices. My main goal is to ensure every team understands their client's vision and goals through the lens of a well-groomed product backlog and can focus solely on delivering that vision efficiently and confidently.

Luckily, it's easy to do when all of our makers consistently exceed expectations in their ability to delivery, learn, grow, and support each other. The opportunity to work with some of the smartest, friendliest, and highly-skilled people in our industry is why I joined, became a part owner of, and continue to work at Atomic Object.
