Justin brought more to the table than what was asked of him. He constantly looked for ways to improve delivery on our expectations, working as an integral member of the team. Our product and design people requested Justin when being assigned a technical resource. Justin worked remotely, and stayed in rhythm and in touch with our business better than many of our local workers. He is a trusted, creative, and execution oriented individual who proves his worth time and again.

Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity
