While the phrase Triple Threat is something you usually encounter in the arts world, it absolutely applies to UpStage Technology’s Principal Software Engineer, Nicholas Tran.
A dedicated learner, Nicholas isn’t a 9 to 5 type of software engineer. He senses learning opportunities and capitalizes on the moment, regardless of when they emerge.
This approach provides the unique ability to extrapolate skills into architecture that suits clients’ needs. He’s an AWS Certified Solutions Architect with advanced degrees in computer science from Arizona State University and a skill stack that simultaneously inspires admiration and envy.
Equally comfortable in research and teaching environments, Nicholas is an effective mentor. His passion for turning onboarding work into formal mentorship opportunities helps build effective team building processes while his opportunistic approach to learning makes informal mentorship a fun and engaging experience for team members.
If that weren’t enough, he brings a diverse set of artistic skills to the table. He currently serves as the executive director of Scawwy Howwow Theatre Company, is a produced playwright, and an accomplished swing dancer.
