Ellen manages daily business and sales operations and strategic directions of AppFusions, while also handling much initial solution design, pre-sales and customer support efforts.
Prior to AppFusions, Ellen consulted for over 15 years in the Silicon Valley in over 30+ high-tech companies. I guess we can say "she's been around". This experience of seeing and working in so many business and development environments (good and bad), an MBA, and strong E2.0 and agile development product management experience, only fuel her energy and passion even more.
Ellen loves hiking, skiing, reading, lakes, music, her kids and husband, and positively the AppFusions team and customers!
Sr. Developer, Solution Architect, NetOps+
Colin is a senior system and network operations, integrations, and plugin developer. He's been working with the Atlassian stack for 4 years+ now, and is a solid backbone to many of our projects. Colin has one of the most positive senior developer attitudes one will ever encounter. Always eager to jump in on the tough problems, and explain them patiently to a customer.
Colin's specialties are in Crowd dev (any system SSO/UM to Crowd), Atlassian dev tools and end-to-end environment, agile dev processes and tools (Atlassian's and Nexus, Mercurial DVCS, Git, etc.), and custom application development. Colin has two adorable daughters, which next to AppFusions, is his pride and joy.
Sr. Developer, Solution Architect, Analytics+
David is pretty well known in Atlassian circles for his crowd-favorite Google Analytics plugin for Confluence. As a senior engineer on our team, his focus centers around Confluence custom application and plugin development.
Prior to AppFusions, David was a senior integrations developer at a university, which followed his scholastic achievement of receiving his PhD in Chemistry/Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Nottingham. That said, we're keen on finding a University or Pharmaceutical interested in sponsoring a Sub-Structure Search application for Confluence. If interested, we'll share the design ready to go; for chemistry folks - it's sweet!
Outside of AppFusions, David sneaks away for quality time with his adorable two children, Lily and Thomas.
