Mike Hanson

Senior Software Engineer


Software Engineer with 16+ years of experience shipping software. I help companies ship new features that delight customers while lowering operational costs.

Some examples include:

  • Reduced customer support requests by 90% after migrating login to Google’s Identity Platform.
  • Enabled strategic partnerships with resellers by designing and implementing backend white labeling API.
  • Saved the company $100k+ per year in licensing costs by removing a third-party rules engine from the product.

I love to lead and contribute to products where I am considered a technical owner. I prefer backend roles where I can architect, design, and develop RESTful APIs. I have DevOps experience, prefer working in C# on the .NET platform, and have recent experience in Kotlin and Java.
