This week’s Meet the Team Monday is Adam Inglehart, Software Engineer and Tech Lead here at ParentSquare! He builds new features and improvements to the ParentSquare platform, keeping our servers turned up to 11.
Where did you grow up?
ParentSquare and I were both born and raised in Santa Barbara, CA.
In what ways are you the same as your childhood self?
Little Adam *loved* playing with Legos. I still love to build things, but now it’s more software than spaceships.
What teacher impacted you the most?
I was homeschooled up until high school, so I’d have to go with my mom.
One thing you cannot live without?
Music (I had 50,000+ minutes of Spotify listening time last year).
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Al Pastor burritos (with avocado of course).
I’ve always loved Christmas; the lights make everything feel so cheerful.
Three things still left on your bucket list?
Spend a year living in a different country, be fluent in another language, and co-found a company.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
I’m dying to go to Patagonia - It looks incredibly beautiful.
What do you like most about working for ParentSquare?
I'm helping to build a product that's making a genuine difference in education, and I get to learn a ton while I'm doing it! The espresso machine is a close second though.
Adam has been at ParentSquare since September 5th, 2016.
