Tyler Steimle


I am a full-stack developer for HS2 Solutions. My wife and two daughters tolerate my love of the Chicago Bulls. I want to own all the Apple products and all the guitars. Books are cool too.


Q: What brought you into The Factory?
A: I signed up for a PHP CoLearning class taught by Factory member Ben Routson. I learned so much about PHP development in the course and felt immediately immersed in The Factory culture. At the end of the class Ben was even able to help me transition into an amazing new job with HS2 Solutions as an Interactive Drupal / Symfony2 developer. The Factory community welcomed me with open arms and I've had a membership ever since.

Q: What do you like most about what you do?
A: I get to solve problems and learn something amazing every day. Discovery is an intoxicating feeling.

Q: If you could trade places with a person you admire for the day, who would that be and what would you be doing?
A: If I could trade places with a person I admire, it would be Jonathan Ive at Apple. And I would be crushing it, that's what I would be doing.

Q: What is your favorite local eatery around The Factory and what do you order?
A: My favorite local spot by The Factory is HopCat. I order the spinach salad with tilapia and an awesome porter or stout.

Q: When you have free time, what hobby are you passionately pursuing?
A: Basketball and trail running.
