Shannon Coward just completed the iOS Mobile Engineering course at The Iron Yard and is the ultimate team player. He’s ready to dive into the startup world and find a close-knit work family while furthering his coding skills. Check him out and keep him in mind when looking for the next member of your team.
What past tech projects have you worked on?
I’m actually working on a social networking app for sneaker heads. I also own a small business named Rarefied Productions that creates videos, music, photographs, flyers, advertising and promotions. I got to work on numerous projects including videos for up and coming artists “Lamborghini Lou” and “Domeneke Malone” which were both published on YouTube.
What are your best technical or creative skills?
Thanks to the Iron Yard my best and most valuable technical skill would be coding with Swift in Xcode. Swift is such a so fresh and so clean language, and now that it’s open source the sky’s the limit. My most attractive creative skills are to visualize an idea, formulate a plan, set goals, achieve my goals and produces a beautiful product. I’m the ultimate team player.
What’s next on your list to learn?
What’s your ideal internship/job?
My ideal job would be one where I can continue learn and grow with a company that has a built a family type culture. In a perfect world I would have a great team in a mentorship like setting where I could help the team, and also get help from someone with lots of experience.
Interested in startups?
I would be interested in a startup especially if the company offered some type of mentorship, or offered a family like structure that can propel my professional growth and skills.
Post graduation plans?
After graduation I’m seeking opportunities where I can be an asset to the company as well as improve my skills. All job offers are welcomed as well as contract work.
When are you available to start?
I’m available to start right now. I’m ready!
