Jake's super power is communication, both written and verbal. He always comes prepared, with comprehensive docs which he articulates effectively to peers and leaders. He earns trust through the quality of the work (high standards), and backs it up with consistent engagements (ownership) and technical understanding of his space and dependencies (are right alot).
I’m always amazed at your preparation — when you walk into a room with a design, it’s fully baked and delivered in a highly concise manner. Similarly, you bring high levels of clarity to the projects you contribute to.
Jake gets really tough stuff done. His work ... show(s) that he is willing and able to dive in on very complex and challenging problems and deliver results that clearly solve those problems. At the same time, he often jumps on small-scale opportunities for improvements and delivers results there too.
Jake is an automation wizard. He is able to dig around and find undocumented information about our services that other engineers easily miss. I’m impressed with how, when faced with a problem, he is able to rapidly develop and deploy a fix. He’s always interested in finding the gaps in our services, automating a solution and easing the operational burden on our team.
Jake's engaging communication style, willingness to share his knowledge with peers, as well as his ability to explain complex matters in simple terms makes him an exceptional mentor and coach.
Jake is a super power to any project he's working on. He brings his expertise with a lot of zeal and puts in tons effort and hard work. He's super knowledgeable and enables his teammates. Always ready to help and push his colleagues forward.
Jake is so obviously a master. I've rarely had the fortune to work with someone who is so knowledgeable about their field, but never had someone so kind and generous with sharing their expertise and time. Jake regularly messages me unprompted to go into additional context and detail about subjects being discussed in meetings, and can always be relied upon to offer incredible insight into what is being discussed.
Jake's sense of ownership, bias for action, and ability to effectively juggle multiple simultaneous projects are impressive. During his work on Unfabric DHCP and DNS he was able to stay laser focused and almost single-handedly drive those projects to success. He's also a great communicator and presenter. His presentations are always engaging, informative, and entertaining.
Jake is solution minded, delivering contributions that produce significantly new/better/different business outcomes for the organization. He plays an active role in mentoring, coaching and developing others and acts as a game changer elevating the performance of those around him.
I worked with Jake in developing the Hyper-V offering at Rackspace. Jake is an incredibly dedicated engineer who thrives on learning, creating, and implementing new and unfamiliar technologies. With his help, we were able to implement a fully automated deployment and quality control application for the Hyper-V hypervisors at Rackspace. Working with Jake was a great experience, as he embodies the positive characteristics of collaboration, experimentation, and development. I would recommend Jake for any team that would be developing a new offering or implementing large projects at scale. I expect any company or team he joins will be well on its way to success.
