Chris Cortez

Software Consultant

As a child, Chris was fascinated by technology. From taking apart computers and figuring out how to put them together to exploring command line prompts on Windows 95, he was driven by a curiosity to figure out how computers work. He took that curiosity to the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, where he earned a BS in Computer Science with a concentration in Human-Computer Interaction. From there he went on to work at several software companies, picking up knowledge of HTML, CSS, Javascript, and Ruby on Rails. Taking a human-first approach to developing applications, Chris then worked as a freelancer for a couple of years while also writing and performing music with his band. After several musical tours within the US, he turned more of his attention to software. Excited to bring his passion for people-first applications to Tandem, he joined the team shortly after they acquired Polymathic and has since continued his growth as a consultant. When he is not developing, he is still writing and performing music.
