Eigenvectorian Scott Koch celebrates 10+ years with EVRI
Oct 20, 2016
Scott Koch joined Eigenvector in January, 2004, and quickly made himself indispensable. Although his title is Senior Software Engineer, Scott commented the other day, “we wear so many hats in a small company that I don’t know if a title is really useful.” He tackles a variety of jobs at EVRI including interface and database design, software version control and general troubleshooting. Scott is fluent in MATLAB, SQL, Java, Subversion and Python and contributes to our products, e.g. PLS_Toolbox and Solo, as well as working with our clients on custom applications. You can also catch him as a guest blogger for Undocumented Matlab, where he discusses his work involving Matlab-Java programming.
In addition to working at Eigenvector, Scott is also an outdoor enthusiast and distance runner, and can often be seen flying through the trails of the west coast. Here he is running the Broken Arrow Trial near Sedona, AZ. He’s also an avid backcountry skier and rally car driver.
Says Barry, President of EVRI: “When we hired Scott there was one thing on his resume that really caught my eye: ‘PSIA level II Ski Instructor: Possess an uncanny ability to coax terrified beginners down steep slopes and back onto the chair lift.’ Scott has been all that and more with regard to helping users with our software, and he’s filled a lot of gaps in our development process I didn’t even realize we had. We’re so glad Scott is part of our team!”
Thanks Scott for all your hard work! We have a lot of fun hanging out with you, and you inspire us with your athletic passions and drive to make this company better.
