Welcome.

My name is Nathan Pantaleo. I am a graduate of the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana with a B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science. I currently work as a software engineer in Chicago. This is my personal website designed to illustrate my interests as well as provide background information about myself.

Portfolio

Programming is a huge part of my life. I enjoy the challenges and learning experiences it provides. Please check out my github repository to view current projects as well as other pojects I have contributed to. I strongly believe that code should be open and free and that the most effective way for the world to grow and evolve technologically is through the innovation open source projects can provide.

About Me

Since I was young, I have always been interested in technology - especially computers. Therefore majoring in computer science was an obvious choice for me. To this day, I regard studying Computer Science at the University of Illinois as one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Through my career I've worked with development teams both large and small, a wide range of managements with different Agile philosophies, and projects that have varied drastically. I've always enjoyed and learned as much as I could from each company and left as a leader ready to take on the next challenge. After working with mobile for 4 years I received the opportunity to work full stack on an AI project - I don't mean AI like the buzz word thrown around in our industry - I mean collaborating each day with real Data Scientists to engineer their applications. Being able to innovate at a game changing level like this has shown me I can never go back. I understand now the impact I am capable of.

My job should challenge me to open my mind to new ideas and allow me to gain experience and insight into software development. As a software engineer in Chicago I am gaining a variety of real world experiences and learning what it takes to succeed in a quickly paced and demanding work environment. I have worked and get along with all types of people. I enjoy working on teams and have strong written and oral communication skills.
