Software Developer

Why I Choose to Work at Academic Innovation:

“Growing up in Ann Arbor the University of Michigan’s presence was always around me. After college I wanted to get involved and contribute to the education community I had just been a part of. A.I. presented me the opportunity to join a fast pace startup environment surrounded by highly skilled peers at the institution of my dreams, how could I say no?”

Current Roles/Previous Experience:

Erik’s job on the Software Tools team is to reimagine the potential of educational technology. His day to day work centers around conceiving and implementing solutions to complex real-world problems. To ensure the best possible usability, functionality and presentation of our applications he gets to work closely with user experience designers, behavioral scientists and data scientists. Before working at the Center for Academic Innovation, he attended college within Buckeye nation, returning on sheer will alone to tell his story.
