Lab Partner: Paul Harding

When you are interacting with Exclamation Labs, there is a good chance that you are unaware of the talent fueling your project. We work with some pretty spectacular people who are truly experts in their field. Take a few minutes to get to know them, personally and professionally, and see why these folks are the "special sauce" in our recipe for success.

Meet Paul, one of our Full Stack Developers!

Q: Give us a quick overview: Tell us about your role at eLabs. How long have you been here, what roles have you played? What is your favorite thing about working at Exclamation Labs?

I have been at eLabs for about 15 months. I am a full stack developer. One of my favorite parts of working here is working on a team that cares so much about their craft. It’s awesome to work with a group of people that truly care about what they do.

Paul is definitely someone who truly cares about the quality of his work as well. Brandon Powers, Lead Developer, shared this about Paul:

"Paul’s character shines through his work habits and performance. He continuously impresses me with his precise and meticulous nature - He always carefully asks the right questions and aims to reach the heart of the challenge in front of him. His thoroughness lends itself to his accomplishments and aids in propelling the Exclamation Labs Development team's success."

Celebrating at the end of an 8K race!

Since we’re here in the “Lab,” time for an exam! No right or wrong answers, but it is rapid-fire. We'll call this "10 questions in 60 seconds." Tell us the first thing that comes to your mind:

1. What would you name the autobiography of your life?

Hopefully, I’m too young write the autobiography of my life, so I’m going with something like Unfinished or Work in Progress.

2. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

I’d like to be able to speak more languages fluently.

3. When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?

Working on a programming project, learning something new, reading

4. If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?

Interesting question - I’m pretty happy with being me, so it’s pretty weird to think about being someone else. I’m probably taking the question too literally, though so, I’ll go with the Master Chief from the Halo video game series.

5. What is something you learned in the last week?

My sister recommended this show to me called “Brain Games,” so my wife and I have been watching some of that. I have learned that I miss out on a shocking amount of information, even when it is put right in front of me.

6. What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?

Indoor - probably programming

Outdoor - I enjoy running and playing tennis

7. What chore do you absolutely hate doing?

I don’t really like putting the dishes away after they’ve been cleaned, not sure why.

8. If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?

Probably the Apostle Paul - His writing is so logical, and his arguments are so well constructed. He was also incredibly committed to his faith. I think I could learn and grow so much from being around him.

9. What’s the coolest (or most important) trend you see today?

I think it’s cool that there is competition in the CPU market, with AMD making quality CPUs again and Apple announcing that they’re moving away from Intel. Hopefully, the competition will mean lots of excellent processors for us to choose from soon.

10. What would you most like to tell potential eLabs employees or customers?

It’s been said that a place is only as good as the people in it, and the people here are pretty awesome. They are passionate about what they do, and they really care about delivering an excellent product.
