Daniel has been writing code as long as most kids have been doing multiplication. He is one of Amoeba’s cofounders, and has a passion for bringing new ideas to life as well as building awesome teams and improving development process. Daniel also has significant web, scaling, and big-data experience, and has consulted for startups and Fortune 500s in the New York and San Francisco areas for over a decade.
When he isn't building software, Daniel works on several non-profit projects including Hack the Future, a quarterly Hackathon that teaches and inspires kids to code, solder, and build things.
When Steve started writing software, it was literally put in a box and shipped out of the office. He’s a (reluctantly) famous indie Mac OS Developer, and has written titles such as Final Draft, the industry standard in screenwriting software, Path Finder, the most popular OS X alternative file manager, as well as the iLike sidebar (which was bought up by MySpace in 2009). Recently he’s transitioned to writing cross-platform web apps as well as mobile apps. When he isn’t writing code, Steve can be found riding around San Francisco on his fixie, wearing ironic t-shirts, or watching some obscure youtube video you've never heard of. Or at home with his wife and kids.
Richard specializes in Visual Design and User Experience Design. He possesses a particularly broad skill set and specializes in design direction, creative concepting, and the design of desktop and mobile web sites.
Richard puts people at the heart of the design process – from brief to execution. By recognizing user goals, and measuring against those goals, he delivers top notch design which not only looks great, but delivers task completion with ease.
In his spare time, Richard goes to shows (he’s a huge music fan), chaperones his dog (she's a party animal), and explores an ever-growing collection of interests.
Chris Barton is one of those rare engineers that knows every line of code of the frameworks he works with by heart. He’s our web framework expert and is an active contributor to Rails, Errbit, and several popular Ruby gems.
When he isn’t hacking on code, Chris enjoys listening to whompy electronic music, and playing Words With Friends. You might want to watch out though, rumor has it he hacked his client to allow him to play any word (so much for server-side validation). Chris studied both Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at the University of Iowa.
