Meet the Newest Kaseware Team Members

Now let’s get to know more about these two outstanding developers!
Gino Di Gregorio
“Colorado born and raised, I grew up tinkering with any electronic device that I could put together and take apart. When I was three, I once took my dad’s drill and started to drill holes into the wall, then proudly showed my parents my handiwork. After graduating from Ralston Valley High School, I started my journey at the Colorado School of Mines. (For anyone who knows Mines, this is a long, hard journey.)
My first plan was for an electrical engineering major, but after taking some time off and reflecting on what I really loved, I returned to pursue a degree in computer science. The moment I knew this was what I wanted to do was when I reached the point, well past that first “Hello World” application, when I was able to actually code the pictures I had in my head. After finishing all of my course work but before “officially” graduating in August of 2019, I started looking for a job in the technology field (I got my first job before I even technically graduated).
I found Kaseware because the product intrigued me; it looked way more interesting than working as a nameless number in a large company. When I came in for my interview, it just felt right — it was like a family, somewhere I could learn, but have fun while I was doing it. I’ve been here for one month, and I already feel like I am getting my hands dirty, committing code and being a contributing member of the team.”
“Colorado born and raised (and technically more of a native than Gino as I am five years older), I grew up with computers and music. My first computer was an old Windows 3.1 machine that I played hours of “Tank Wars” on, and when I wasn’t playing that, I was singing in the choir. In high school, as part of Chamber Choir, I even had the opportunity to perform at Carnegie Hall.
After high school, I moved to Wyoming to major in vocal performance at the University of Wyoming. After realizing this was a terrible life decision (as I was not competitive enough to really pursue it), I moved back to Colorado and worked for a number of years in retail. After a few years, I wanted a job that could have more impact on the community, and moved to Boulder Community Hospital as a diet clerk (it’s basically an office worker that deals with dietary needs). I liked helping patients, but I realized the medical field was not for me, and I missed working with computers.
So I left the medical industry and moved to a small software firm, starting as an administrative assistant. Over the course of five years, I moved into a development position, while simultaneously going to school full time at Regis (I was tired a lot). After graduation, I started looking for a new opportunity that could meld computer science and a field that I could find fulfilling.
One of my favorite non-computer science classes in college was Criminal Justice, and when I found Kaseware it was an opportunity to combine two subjects that I was passionate about. Just like Gino, I have been here for one month (we both started on the same day in fact), and I already see a huge amount of possibility in the system. I am excited to implement further changes to create an intelligent system for our customers.”
