I’m Dan Loman, an iOS developer from a small mountain town in Vermont, transplanted to—and loving—the San Francisco Bay area. After attempting to qualify for the 2014 Olympics as an alpine ski racer, I spent the first several years of my professional career developing the internal and external-facing interpersonal skills necessary for excelling in a business development/account management career. Though I performed very well in this arena and helped attain millions of extra dollars in revenue for my employers, my true passion is in building great products. During my tenure in my previous positions, I spent time outside my normal responsibilities to lead in the development of robust reporting tools (internal and external) as well as in-depth performance analytics products. Since leaving my previous employer, I have been focusing full-time—with the help of Bloc.io—on moving my Swift and Objective-C skills from those of a hobby-level coder to the level of a true professional iOS developer. It has been a fun and challenging experience and I’m so excited to now search for the right iOS developer opportunity!
When I’m not in front of my computer, I can be found outdoors in any number of places. Playing tennis, ski racing, trail running, cycling, soccer, backpacking, etc., etc., etc. Growing up in a small Vermont town, surrounded almost exclusively by the outdoors, has left it’s imprint—and I’ve been enjoying the adventure ever since.
