A little about me.
Hi, I’m Chris Graber, the founder of Captive Coder, a full service software development and business efficiency consulting firm. See my services here.
I truly enjoy interacting with multidisciplinary teams towards a common goal. I like to use my technical, creative, and business skills to create unique, custom solutions and have experience supporting projects in areas such as finance, healthcare, environment, government, and more.
I have over two decades of experience in the technology sector and have worked with startups, midsized businesses, and nonprofit organizations on a wide variety of projects and in various capacities.
My back story:
I hold a BS in Mechanical Engineering from UC Santa Barbara, where I graduated with honors and was a Regents Scholar. I’ve always been excited about sustainable technologies, and during college I had an internship working on the GM EV1 electric car, utilizing 3D CAD software to create innovative tooling.
Along the way, I began working on various side projects while working full time, and hence the birth of Captive Coder. I found this an invaluable way to keep up to speed with the latest technologies and innovations.
I then was the IT Director and Co-Executive Director of ISEAI. I leveraged a wide variety of software to help the organization fulfill its mission, and to connect board members, staff, and members worldwide. I implemented and managed Google Workspace (formerly GSuite), developed and customized the WordPress website and managed two developers, and configured the membership platform, conference registration, live streaming conference platforms, our donation platform, customized and ran our Zoom account for meetings and member webinars, and more.
