⚡ Junior Spotlight: Terry Threatt
My name is Terry Threatt, and I am a software engineer from Houston, Texas. I graduated from the Flatiron School immersive coding boot camp this year where I learned a ton of Ruby and JavaScript.
I currently work at the fitness tech company Peloton as a WMS Specialist where I triage bugs in the warehouse management system, train warehouses on how to implement the system, and recommend improvements to the system for the engineering and supply chain team.
Prior to Peloton, I graduated from the University of Houston and started a career in sports and entertainment. I am most proud of starting a yearlong project of creating an events parking operation for the University of Houston Athletics Department that served over 30,000 fans for live sporting events. This challenge included developing a comprehensive parking operation plan, gathering resources, hiring, and developing standard operating procedures. This experience really helped me become a better project manager and problem-solver.
After this challenge, I started to become really interested in careers that faced more opportunities to problem-solve and was well-suited for my interests, so I decided to transition my career into tech and pursue software engineering. I‘ve always been super interested in technology. I wrote my first piece of code when I was 14, hacking together a website with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Then, earning my first bit of money by coding myspace layouts when I was 17.
