clypd Profiles: 9 Questions with James Garfield

In this blog series, we interview a member of the clypd team every month. Find out what drives us, what makes us tick, and what we do outside of the clypd office. In this month’s clypd Profile, we talk to James Garfield, Principal Software Engineer. Can you describe your job and an average day working at clypd? I like to get in about an hour before our stand-up meeting to have time to make myself an Aeropress coffee, read my email, and catch up with engineers on other teams. I’m lucky enough to get to work on projects all over our tech stack, from standing up new platform APIs, integrating with data-science, and helping our UI team use state of the art technology. I try and fit all my meetings to synchronize on my projects in the mornings, so that I can concentrate on writing code in the afternoon. I also like to round out the day with a rousing game of foosball.
