Scott has been programming since 1986 at the age of 5 when he discovered the BASIC programming language on his dad’s IBM PC Jr. Quickly branching out to C / C++ / Turbo Pascal, and more- Scott has written hundreds of computer programs both for his profession and as a hobby.
While his first computer program was a terrible version of Hangman with only five (misspelled) words, he has since moved on to state of the art inventory tracking, POS, and enterprise grade systems for companies all over the globe. Scott is also a contributor to open source and is the author of a widely-used Bamboo HR Python library among other things.
Inspired by his love of fantasy, in 1999, Scott was the sole developer on a passion project called BattleMagica which allowed players all over the globe to play in an RPG setting together using a web browser.
In a past life, Scott held positions as the Director of Engineering at BriteCore and the Vice President of development for BlueInk. Taking what he’s learned from his 20+ years of professional development, Scott is building a truly innovative and progressive software company with Factobot.
While Scott’s passion for programming cannot be denied, his greatest love is his two young children with whom he spends every possible moment. Scott’s related hobbies include pretending to be a horsie, a jungle-gym, and making airplane noises with his mouth.
Writing, singing (poorly), lifting weights, reading, and the occasional video game are ways that Scott spends what little free time he has. He also enjoys gritty crime dramas and thinks that Breaking Bad, The Shield, and The Sopranos are some of the greatest shows ever made.
Like most indispensable people at any organization, Erin wears multiple hats at Factobot. She is our employee number one and has been with Factobot since the very first day. Originally hired to help Scott with organization and efficiency, Erin has become absolutely indispensable as our Creative Director.
With the wave of her hand, and the flick of her mouse, Erin manages projects from inception to launch... and beyond. If all roads lead to Rome than all roads at Factobot go through Erin. She's the beating heart of our organization and keeps things moving smoothly.
Erin is a talented and creative Web/UX/UI Designer and she wrangles SCSS / HTML with ease. You will often find her curled up with a hot cup of coffee and her cat (Tetra) while she makes gorgeous, state-of-the-art web interfaces.
If the name of her cat didn't give it away, Erin is a huge fan of the Zelda franchise and she can often be found rescuing princess Zelda when she's not answering client emails or reminding Scott to follow up on one thing or another.
Erin is a home-grown product of Southwest Missouri, proving once and for all that good things do, in fact, come from Missouri.
Erin, when she isn't flexing her creative side on her Macbook Pro, is flexing her powerful singing voice on stage. She can be found in a leading role at her local theater from time to time. She truly enjoys all things musical and her favorite band is Coheed and Cambria.
