Adam Keller is a Mobile/Scrum Product Owner, and works closely with our clients as our development team engineers their custom mobile applications.
Why do you do what you do? What led you to this career?
I have worked in and around software development for over a decade, and am an ardent Agilist. The Agile Mindset is fueled by compassion and teamwork, and that is why I embraced the Scrum Process. I have been extremely involved with the Florida Agile community; even hosting my own Lean Coffee for several years, which provided Agilists in the Tampa Bay market a platform to discuss experiences and ask questions. My experience as a Scrum Product Owner, married with Venuetize’s commitment to Agile, has created a complimentary partnership. I love watching software come to life, evolving with the change of business needs, and that is why I do what I do.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
The collaboration. I love working closely with clients, understanding their business initiatives, and delivering applications and features to support their mission. Outside of the partnerships with my clients; Venuetize has an amazing team who have been a joy to work with, and have helped me grow substantially.
What are you passionate about outside of work?
First and foremost: my family. My wife and children motivate me in everything I do (I also have a Doberman Pinscher named “Dutch” after Phillies’ great Darren Daulton, a cat, and a duck in the family…yup, we have a duck). I am also an avid drone pilot and photographer, die-hard Philadelphia Eagles fan, fanatical mountain biker, and Harley-Davidson enthusiast.
If you could do anything else for work, what would it be?
I would be a photographer for National Geographic, touring every corner of the globe, documenting the human condition. Despite working in the IT Industry, I still often tote my Nikon around with me, and maybe one of these days I will have the opportunity to publish my life’s work.
What’s something very few people know about you?
I was an Altar Boy in the Philly ‘burbs.
