Please join me in welcoming Jason to the Murfie Dev Team. Now, stand up and applaud his killer speech! (It’s actually a Q&A, but hey!)
Name: Jason J. Gullickson.
Nickname: Mr. Black.
Why I joined Murfie: I saw it as a way to combine my love of music, software development, and innovation with the added benefit of working with some of the smartest and most interesting people I know.
What I do at Murfie: I’m responsible for the software we write to make Murfie work. Right now, I’m focusing on making that software work faster and better as well as looking forward to what technology we will be offering to our members next.
What I do best: Make Things Work.
My favorite coding jujitsu move is: I’ve gotten myself out of some tight corners using “reflection,” but of course the best move is to avoid the corner in the first place.
The music I play the most: By sheer play count it’s got to be either Bach’s The Musical Offering or Metallica’s …And Justice for All, but lately Baba Brinkman and Professor Elemental have both been getting pretty heavy rotation…
The music format I dig the best: Live of course! But of the recorded mediums, I love the lossless digital formats we have now (although I’ll always have a soft spot for listening to Martin Denny or Juan Esquivel on a classic Marantz hi-fi).
What makes Murfie so rad: Murfie delivers on the radical idea that you can own a recording, and that music can be bought and sold online with the simplicity of physical media but with all the convenience of electronic delivery.
