We welcome Neveo Harrison to the GiveSignup | RunSignup development team! Neveo was raised in Colorado Springs and made his way to the New Jersey Institute of Technology where he earned a B.S. in computer science and played basketball. From there, he built his career at companies like Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, and a few early startups. He became heavily involved in the PHP open source community where he contributed to version 5.2, which had 200+ million downloads worldwide. He also led many talks and organized PHP meetups in New York City.
Neveo was introduced to the world of endurance sports by his wife. Since then, he has competed in four marathons, five Ironman races, and many other events, including the Norseman Xtreme Triathlon held in Norway. The entire Harrison family, including two children, are outdoor and sports oriented. When they are not training for a race, you can find them coaching the kids on the lacrosse field, basketball court, or on a mountain skiing and snowboarding.
While discussing this position with Neveo, he said this is a “dream job” that mixes his personal passion around endurance with his professional software expertise. We know! Many of us feel the same way!
