Mentor Spotlight - Jake Brandt - TEKsystems


Jake Brandt is a senior software engineer with TEKsystems at Wegmans Food Markets. His B.S. degree is in computer science from the Rochester Institute of Technology; and he has been happy to return as an adjunct lecturer for 2D/3D graphics within the Department of Computer Science. Jake has enjoyed software projects with both startups (CTO at a sports betting venture) and enterprises (both devops and engineering) and has focused primarily in web (Angular/AngularJS, ASP.NET) and cross-platform (Xamarin and .NET Core) applications. He owns a MacBook, runs Ubuntu with LXQt on his Android phone and was a Windows Phone fanboy for a multi-year run. Supporting both light and dark mode IDEs, he’s a friend of all. He’s looking forward to contributing to any project on a tech stack ranging from Raspberry Pi to cloud-native!
