Patrick Wiseman

A successful strategic business consultant and entrepreneur from Atlanta, Georgia. Patrick has a proven track record with over ten years of product experience working with everyone from single-founder startups to Fortune 500 companies to deliver technology solutions that are beautifully designed and delightful to use. He understands the end-to-end product development process and thrives in a growing, fast-paced environment with a makers mentality.

Brenda Storer

Brenda is a Silicon Valley native who moved to NYC to escape the tech scene and pursue a creative career. But after trading coasts, she discovered that tech is actually really creative and pretty awesome. She’s been making websites since the early days of Geocities and professionally for the past decade in development and design roles. As an award winning conference speaker, she has been around the world presenting talks on her greatest love, CSS. She loves being an active member of the NYC tech community and helping to organize local front-end meetups.

Jacob Robertson

Jacob is a computer scientist from Atlanta, Georgia. He has jumped around between startups, large enterprises, consulting, and academia. With a seemingly infinite appetite for learning, there is hardly an aspect of computing and software development that isn’t of interest to him. Jacob applies what he knows to create software that is beautifully written, maintainable, and fast.

Mia North

The newest member of the Deft team, Mia is an engineer with a background of consulting and in-house product development for Fortune 500 companies, delivering sophisticated and maintainable product solutions for a challenging array of business requirements and goals. She loves to enhance and streamline productivity through improved tooling and code maintainability. She believes that there’s nothing quite so satisfying as taking ugly, complex code and refactoring it to be beautiful, maintainable, and simple.

When she isn’t building awesome software with Deft, she plays roller derby and takes too many pictures of other people’s pets.
