John Caraan

RJJohn, or RJ as everyone calls him, graduated from Mapua Institute of Technology (MIT of the Philippines) in 2009 and started working at Cambria that same year. Together with Romeo and Rodel he is the other one of our success stories of hiring someone right out of school. This does not always work out and we no longer hire anyone with less than 8 years experience but you have to wonder if we are missing something. RJ is theoretically a member of our .Net team and is skilled in ASP.Net, VB.Net and the MS Sql and MySQL databases. He also has some experience in PHP. But on the departure of Ragini Yalamanchali from our company when we decided to close down in Philadelphia, RJ jumped sight unseen into a major Perl project and after a rough couple of weeks made a success of it and has been full time on this project now since 2013. The client originally estimated that he would be needed only for a few weeks but was so impressed he stayed with us and gave RJ a ton of extra software work.
