What makes Ascedia special? Our people! Every week, we'll introduce you to a member of our team so you can get to know us a little better.
NAME AND TITLE
Mike Janowski -- Senior Application Developer
MY TYPICAL WORKDAY
Get to work early, grab a cup of coffee, prepare and/or review a list of tasks I want to complete by the end of the day, and then try to complete them.
HOW I CHOSE MY CAREER PATH
I enjoy creative problem solving and as a developer I get to do that every day.
MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORKING AT ASCEDIA
I was attracted by the fast-paced agency life and being able to work on a number of different projects.
B.S. in Computer Science from UW-Eau Claire
HIGH SCHOOL MASCOT
Ran my own lawn mowing ‘business’ in 7th grade. I took out a loan from my dad to buy a lawnmower and paid it off in a matter of months. Still use it (although not as often as I should) to this day.
BEST PIECE OF CAREER/PROFESSIONAL ADVICE I'VE RECEIVED
Learn from other people’s mistakes. Plan ahead.
My wife, Emily. What she has and continues to accomplish impresses more and more each day.
FAVORITE MILWAUKEE HANGOUT
Brown Deer Disc Golf course or the least busy WAC location
LAST BOOK READ
The Phoenix Project
PERSON I'D MOST LIKE TO MEET (LIVING OR DEAD)
Wife (Emily) and a really loud but adorable dog (Yogi)
WHAT I DO IN MY SPARE TIME
Being outdoors, disc golfing, working out and spending time with my family.
I don’t know… I own a bolo tie and can eat really fast, does that count?
MOST MEANINGFUL ACCOMPLISHMENT
Making a skins match at the Justin Trails Open in 2010 as an amateur by shooting one of the four lowest rounds of the tournament on a very difficult course. Got the opportunity to play against three of the top pros in the area for $100 a hole. I didn’t win anything but it was an awesome experience.
