Josh Fester

Los Angeles

I build and lead technology teams. I create scalable, distributed high-traffic web apps and infrastructures using agile development and continuous integration. Utilizing the latest tools like Chef, AWS, JIRA, and Bamboo, development cycles are efficient and enjoyable.

I got an early start in business and full-stack engineering when I started a freelance development company during my senior year of high school. I developed a strong knowledge of entrepreneurship and core web technologies. I now have experience with Ruby (Rails and Sinatra), Javascript (Node, Ember, Angular), PHP (Symfony, Wordpress), ASP.NET, devOps, and agile development practices.

My true passion is building things that have a positive impact on how the world works. In late 2013, I jumped at the opportunity to join a startup called Miigle. Within two weeks of meeting the founder, I decided to pack up my life and move to LA. We are now a team of three with experience building three separate startups together.
