Bryan Dodd

Senior Software Engineer

I’ve been interested in computers and technology for as long as I can remmeber.  My first PC was a Windows 3.1 machine that I inherited from my grandfather when I was 9 years old.  My interest in programming started with designing and hosting websites in high school.  I focused on computer programming and networking courses throughout high school, and studied Computer Science at Kent State University.  I’ve been a professional software engineer since 2011, working for multiple successful startups across the Northeastern U.S.  I’ve been fortunate to help grow these companies into larger businesses with strong futures ahead of them.

My responsibility at Level 12 is to create high quality software that brings value to our customers.

My life is filled with the love of my wife, friends, two cats, and a dog.
