If I were tasked with assembling the software engineering avengers to save the world, Jeremy Brayton would undoubtedly be at the top of my list.

Simply put, Jeremy is a prodigy, a wiz kid, a top of the food chain software engineer. He is an extremely talented and skilled individual in all areas of the software development lifecycle from requirements gathering, architecting solutions, developing those solutions, automated regression testing, to deployment, and implementing tools to keep status of security and production bugs. He asks the right questions, thinks about flexible and extendible solutions that maximizes his productivity. His level of software engineering has elevated into the abstract that allows him to rapidly pick up a language or design paradigm and become an expert after the first documentation review. On top of all that, Jeremy is a great team member. He's very pleasant and fun to work alongside.

If you are looking for a founding software engineer or a principal developer to join your team, look no further. His contributions will make your vision manifest into reality and take your team to the next level. Snatch him up immediately because there is only one Jeremy Brayton.

- Tyler Dotson, Principal Full Stack JavaScript Developer

Jeremy is one of the best engineers I've ever had the privilege of working alongside. I've seen him take charge on all sorts of projects and carry them through to the end. Many times I saw him take less than ideal requirements and fight for project clarity and unity among the development team. He's cooperative and extremely helpful, but also knows how to push back and challenge assumptions when it's necessary.

During our time working together, Jeremy built projects from scratch, systematically tackle legacy code, save the company from potential security catastrophes, and demonstrate great character throughout it all.

I would consider myself privileged to work with him again, and highly recommend him to others as well.

- Jamie Howard, COO at Slingshot

Jeremy is an extremely bright and capable person. He consistently steps up to take on tough development challenges and his focus on work is outstanding. Jeremy's development skills are very senior and I can easily recommend him for his ability to push through important projects.
