Christopher Gorman was employed by Take Three Technologies from November 2018 to October 2019 as a Software Developer. He reported directly to me, the Software Development Manager, during this period.
His duties included working on both bug fixes and new features for our commercial products, using technologies such as ASP.NET MVC (C#), JavaScript, CSS, and Microsoft SQL Server. We also was involved in weekly team meetings, providing many valuable ideas and lead our documentation improvement efforts. Christopher performed these functions with both commitment and enthusiasm.
Christopher was a great asset to this company and I highly recommend him for his technical skills, his excellent organizational ability and his attention to detail.
If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Chris Gorman reported to me as a contractor over the past 7 months (Feb-Sep 2016). During that time, I observed him not only excelling at his primary job responsibility, application support, but also take on several other tasks not expected of him. Of note, he was asked to take a look at an application that was running slowly. There was virtually no documentation on the application and Chris took it upon himself to review the code and solve the performance problem. Along the way, he also recommended several UI improvements to help users better navigate the application. I was very impressed at how quickly Chris found and solved the issue when other members of the team had failed. Chris has a great attention to detail, it not hesitant to accept any task assigned, and can pick up new technologies very quickly. I would highly recommend him for any technical role for which he applies.

Chris was one of several team members who reported directly to me while taking support calls at Sutherland Global Services. He was quick to offer support to his fellow coworkers as well as willing to ask for assistance when he himself was in need of that support. Given that remote support is often difficult, Chris was able to quickly gauge the knowledge level of the customer and explain what he was doing while not being condescending to those less tech savvy. His quality assurance reviews were always positive from both a customer and our product perspective. Chris took it upon himself to develop and maintain a webpage that had multiple troubleshooting tools that the entire team could use to further assist our customers. I would recommend him for this type of role, and would gladly work with him again should the opportunity present itself.
