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
Tyler Beck -- Associate Interface Developer
MY TYPICAL WORKDAY
Usually some coffee in the morning, followed by Kentico work. More recently, I have been helping out the creative team with graphics and wire framing.
HOW I CHOSE MY CAREER PATH
I was drawn to web work because it involves visual design, but also technical know-how and usability.
MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORKING AT ASCEDIA
The group who interviewed me was very down to earth and understanding that there would be some learning curve for me making the switch from a design job to development. They offered me a spot as a developer, so I jumped at the chance! My co-workers are some of the most fun and talented people I’ve ever had the chance to work with, so that’s my favorite part about working at Ascedia. The rooftop patio isn’t bad either.
B.A. in Art from UW-Whitewater
HIGH SCHOOL MASCOT
I rolled pizzas at a restaurant in Big Bend, WI.
BEST PIECE OF CAREER/PROFESSIONAL ADVICE I'VE RECEIVED
“Have you tried looking it up on Google?”
FAVORITE MILWAUKEE HANGOUT
Bradford Beach, or anywhere with a pool table.
LAST BOOK READ
Grid Systems in Graphic Design by Josef Muller-Brockmann. It’s mostly pictures.
PERSON I'D MOST LIKE TO MEET (LIVING OR DEAD)
Mom, Dad, older brother (28) and younger brother (21). My mom has two Chihuahuas that I always look forward to seeing when I visit.
WHAT I DO IN MY SPARE TIME
MOST MEANINGFUL ACCOMPLISHMENT
I don’t have one in particular. I’ve learned to trust my decisions, and if I work hard enough at something I can accomplish just about anything.
