Toro Hill is our founder and lead developer, here are some recommendations of his work.
“ ...one of the most reliable and efficient developers I've ever had the pleasure to work with... ”
“Simply put, Toro is one of the most reliable and efficient developers I've ever had the pleasure to work with. Toro was one of the first employees at Going and stayed with us through our acquisition by AOL, working effectively both in-house as well as remotely. His time management, estimates, expectation setting, bug rates, etc. are among the best if not the best of any developer I know. Toro is versatile, handling complex front-end issues as well as general back end and db coding, and has a good sense of user experience and business communication as well. If that's not enough he has a great attitude, is a quiet leader on the team, does not get frazzled easily. I really can't say enough good things about him.”Roy Rodenstein - Director, AOL Inc.
“ ...very knowledgeable in a variety of areas and quickly adapts to new environments and systems... ”
“Toro proved to be a great asset to our development team. He is very knowledgeable in a variety of areas and quickly adapts to new environments and systems. By far, one of the most conscientious developers I've had the pleasure of working with, he is capable of working within a team, but also excels when working independently. He possesses the ability to communicate technical information to non-technical people and asks appropriate questions in order to ascertain project requirements. I highly endorse Toro's work.”Dawn O'Brien - Technical Manager, Interactive, Astral Television Networks
“ ...one of the only developers who thinks beyond the specification... ”
“I've worked with Toro for over 3 years at both Going.com and Global Protection. Toro is one of the only developers who thinks beyond the specification given out to him. He simultaneously acts like both a product manager and developer when setting out on projects and will bring up issues or areas that could cause future problems. Not only is he extremely detail oriented, but he's also fast. His hard working and efficient attitude make him a great asset on any development. team. I look forward to working on future projects with him.”Liz Goncalves - Online Marketing Specialist, Global Protection Corp.
“ ...expect accurate estimates on how long any given feature or function would take to build... ”
“Toro was a very 'popular' engineer at Going to work with. A product manager, upon delivering a spec, could expect Toro to return the spec with a number of well thought-out questions which pushed the limits and assumptions of the spec. A QA engineer could expect rigorous instructions on how to test a particular feature. His boss could expect accurate estimates on how long any given feature or function would take to build, with enough forethought on building for future enhancements. And his peers could expect solid, maintainable code that worked well with the rest of the codebase.Geoff Menegay - CTO, Co-founder, Going, Inc.
Toro is very easygoing, professional, and pleasant. If you don't hire this man, I will (again).”
