David Coulter is a Front-End Developer.

(He designs when inspired.)

He has worked with some big names.

  • Ameriprise
  • Best Buy
  • Energizer
  • FEMA
  • Ford
  • National Geographic
  • Nature Valley
  • Saab
  • Southwest
  • Target
  • and more...

Occasionally, he refers to himself in the third person.

Sometimes, he designs stuff before he codes it.

Other times, he makes ill-advised things that get tons of traffic.

Like most people, he tries to be a decent guy.

Despite his personal flaws, people like working with him.

Dave E. Smith Vice President, Publishing Systems Technology, National Geographic

David is a talented, fast, and highly productive developer who is able to manage a heavy workload in a very fast-paced environment. He has a great attitude, is willing to learn new things, and will stay on a project through final delivery giving it “whatever it takes” to complete the task. It has been a pleasure to work with David and I hope I have the opportunity to work with him again.

Brian Talbot User Experience Design Lead, ThinkGeek

David’s enthusiasm is at the heart of all the characteristics that we, at National Geographic, value him for. David is able to juggle not only a large amount of tasks at once, but does it with an amicable and professional manner that builds not only trust but a personal rapport with many of his colleagues. Being a colleague of David’s, I’ve seen what his positive attitude can do to a team. He’s contributed greatly in all aspects of our team, from being an active, wise, and approachable participant in group critiques to fostering and contributing to our group’s strategic discussions, large and small. Often taking the reigns as the lead on the Front End Development of projects, David has always been proactive about the projects he’s worked on. This, coupled with a good professional peripheral vision of concepts such as visual and interaction design, make David a solid team player in any sized web project or team. I’m excited to see where David’s aptitude, attitude and approach take him throughout his career and can’t recommend him highly enough.

Asif Khan Software Engineer, IBM

David is dedicated to constantly improving his skills and techniques, never content to rely on his previous knowledge as a crutch. This thirst is a direct result of his always genuine enthusiasm. He cares about doing a quality job and not just getting the assignment done. His energy is infectious and an asset few I’ve worked with possess. Whenever I’m asked to recommend a front-end designer/developer for projects, he’s the first one that always comes to mind.

More often than not, he forgets how long he’s been doing this.
