Jake McElroy

Armen Badeer

Vice President of Development

Armen works with our clients to devise elegant solutions to their most challenging problems, as he has in various ways for about 20 years. He really loves it when a plan comes together, whether that is for a piece of software or a crazy project in his garage.

Kelly Vogler

Vice President of Operations

Kelly works closely with clients on a day to day basis and enjoys keeping multiple balls going in the air at once. While she calls Lincoln home, you’re more likely to find her elsewhere traveling and hiking the globe. If she’s not on a trip right now, she’s probably already planning her next adventure.

Jacob Krings

Team Lead/Project Programmer/Mobile

Jacob enjoys playing soccer, video games, and bike riding in his spare time. The thing he really loves most is using electricity to trick rocks into thinking. He is always working on some coding project while at home, it’s what he loves to do.

Brad Hicken

Team Lead/Project Programmer/Web

Brad has been doing software development for over 10 years. When he is not working on code he can be found camping, spending time with his family, or relaxing with his favorite computer game.

Sean Medcalf

Team lead/Project Programmer/Web

Sean is a web developer who loves football, fishing, and hanging out with friends. Basically anything that starts with the letter ‘f’. When he is not coding or having fun that usually means he is asleep.

Lisa Goertzen-Whitaker

Project Programmer/Mobile

By day, Lisa enjoys drinking vast amounts of coffee, thinking about code, and absorbing new knowledge. By night, enjoys curating her spotify playlists, letting her dogs know just how cute they are, and still thinking about code.

Bethany Hage

Junior Programmer/Web

Bethany is a native Nebraskan from the Lincoln area, and she studied computer science at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She was drawn to coding as a profession because of the satisfaction of logical problem-solving and the constant opportunities to learn, but mostly just because you can make computers do neat things. When she’s not coding, Bethany enjoys painting, binging sci-fi shows on Netflix, and (as a certified band geek) watching football games just for the marching band.

Keith Jett

Project Programmer/Web

Keith grew up in Illinois and studied computer science at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Outside of work, he enjoys watching sports and playing video games. His life goal is to live through a Husker football season that doesn’t involve agonizing disappointment. Like, seriously. Just one year. Please.

Zach Lovell

Account Manager

With experience in customer support and a passion for technology, Zach is focused on making sure every build meets client expectations and remains bug free. Zach enjoys camping, fishing and spending time with friends and family.

Will Gidley

Junior Programmer/Mobile

If Will could live for 1000 years, he would probably spend most of it in a classroom learning as much as he could. He can often be found researching topics of interest or discussing them with his friends. In his spare time, he enjoys listening to music, playing video games, and eating new foods. He looks forward to a long career in software development, as technology keeps getting smarter.

Kirby Pelan

Administrative Coordinator

Kirby thrives off of bottomless cups of coffee, prioritized lists, detailed schedules, and color-coded calendars. If someone says it, she makes sure to write it down so it doesn’t fall through the cracks. Outside of work you’re most likely to find her sipping a glass of wine while binge watching Netflix, spending time with family and friends, or cheering on the Huskers.

Kristen Vogler

UI/UX Designer

Kristen is originally from Boston, came to Lincoln for school and decided to stick around. When she isn’t East visiting the Hahvahd Yahd or working you can find her hanging out with her dog Pixel, dreaming up a crazy idea for a new project, or on the softball field.

Bethany Jauken

Junior Programmer/Web

Bethany had been involved in the software world for awhile before getting into the development part of the process. Her previous work in web design and QA has given her a unique perspective and a talent for both building software and finding the things that are broken. Outside of work, you’ll find her enjoying the outdoors, going to shows, trying new restaurants, or playing with her cameras.

Elena Cornwell

Project Manager

Elena came to Nebraska from Hawaii for college and hasn’t looked back. She loves connecting people to opportunities they might not have access to on their own–opportunities that show them they can thrive. When not in the office, she enjoys photographing artists, making lip balm, listening to good local music with friends, engaging with art, or spending time outside in a hammock (but only in the summer–hammocking is not a winter thing).

Lindsay White

Project Programmer/Web

Lindsay has a love of all things nerdy, from video games to anime to tabletop gaming. She enjoys spending time with her family, dog, and five ferrets. She likes the constant challenges software development provides and the ever-changing technologies it uses.
