Scott Blevins

Software Engineer


I'm an enthusiastic, friendly, and outgoing software engineer who is extremely passionate about building better things. I love technology and I have dedicated my life to staying current in my industry.

Some of my proudest achievements have happened during my time at BriteCore where I led the way in creating a tested, scalable, and robust insurance processing system for the cloud.


BriteCore - Director of Engineering

April 2011 - Present

Originally hired as a front-end developer and was subsequently promoted to Chief Engineer, and then to Director of Engineering. During my time at BriteCore I oversaw the creation of continuous integration / automated testing, nightly releases, version control with Git, a remote work environment, passion projects, and a custom, push-button deployment system into AWS named "Marshmallow Cloud".

I have spent the past five years building better tools and processes which have directly saved hundreds of thousands of dollars and prevented countless catastrophic releases.

  • Responsible for all aspects of managing the engineering department.
  • Responsible for hiring and developing new engineering talent.
  • Oversaw the creation of automated testing and CI.
  • Re-wrote and improved key modules of the BriteCore application such as accounting, API, and payments.
  • Created a new and robust testing framework for our disparate front-end systems.
  • Transitioned department from SCRUM (in-office) to a fully remote, post-SCRUM environment.
  • Developed a stand-alone system for complex sorting and printing of insurance documents.
  • Developed application for launching all new production and test instances of BriteCore.
  • Oversaw the transition from SVN to Git / GitHub.
  • Managed the department during significant financial hardship. Responsible for retaining top talent.
  • Created many internal tools and systems which have had significant impact on productivity and are still in use.
  • Oversaw three SOC-I Type II audits with 0 or 1 exception(s) noted each year.
  • Maintained PCI compliance.
  • Became CRISC certified to create better audit controls and activities.
  • Assisted with the sales and marketing process. Included in sales-trips to be the friendly face of software engineering.
  • Gave technology presentations for insurance organizations.

Branson Tourism Center - Senior Developer / DevOps Engineer

February 2009 - April 2011

Working with Branson Tourism Center was a wonderful experience where I got to work with a diverse group of programmers and creative talent. My responsibilities included maintaining a network of servers and client workstations as well as developing a capable and user-friendly ticketing application for Branson shows and attractions.

  • Developed and maintained ticketing software.
  • Developed and maintained scheduling systems.
  • Maintained servers using early DevOps systems.
  • Wrote software to enable communication with legacy systems.

Owner - MacroGeek

November 2007 - April 2011

While I have always done freelance technology work, even back to my childhood, this was my first ever official technology company. I am proud of the applications I wrote for a variety of industries. I wrote web-based software for companies ranging from textbook stores to medical practices. As an early adopter of the web-based application paradigm, I specialized in writing software that ran anywhere and was able to be used concurrently across the globe.

Open Source Projects

I love open source. While my current position didn't afford an enormous amount of time to contribute, I took as many opportunities as I could to give back. While I have contributed to many projects in the past, here are more of my recent efforts.


Creator: Python library for connecting to Bamboo HR's API

This is probably one of my most widely-used pieces of open source software. I wrote this one afternoon to allow one of our internal systems to automatically retrieve information about our employees.


Creator: Python library for connecting to Toggl

This is another library I wrote in an afternoon because of a need I had for connecting Toggl to our internal systems. I needed a way to do some more advanced data analysis on our production capabilities.


Contributor: Official Google Drive Python library

Added some much needed functionality as well as made the source-code PEP8 compliant.


Creator: Simple but robust blogging software

I wrote this because none of the software that was available did quite what I wanted it to. I never really published it out into the world or made any efforts at marketing it but it definitely still serves my purposes and is being used for the BriteCore Blog. (


Creator: Notifcation bar plugin for Bootstrap + jQuery / Zepto

I wanted a clean way to display Bootstrap compatible information bars with options for their persistence as well as how they disappear.
