Our friend and colleague April Hart has left Bocoup. Though we will dearly miss her spirit and enthusiasm, we’re really excited for her next big adventure and can’t wait to see what she does next.

April has impacted Bocoup’s culture and values in immeasurable ways, and has played a big part in making Bocoup the diverse and inclusive company it is today. Joining Bocoup just over five years ago, she helped Bocoup grow in more ways than one as it moved from a small office in Fort Point to its current offices in Boston, New York, and to many remote desks across the East and West coasts. April’s creativity and strategic thinking have helped shape a number of our business processes, including laying the original groundwork for what would later become our scheduling software, and working with our customers and engineers to find meaningful projects.

When you need to grow some plants, you can hire any ol’ gardener. When you need to grow Bocoup, only one Gardner will do: Lyza Danger Gardner!

Originally hailing from Oregon—where she co-founded the high-flying CloudFour—Lyza is now our second Bocouper living in the forests of Vermont.

Like a low-percentage free-throw shooter, we’re only gonna make one point from this post: Peter Beshai has joined the coop as our newest Open Web Data Visualization Engineer!

Peter is a data visualization developer and a usability enthusiast. After a lifetime of frustration with hard-to-use devices and hard-to-decipher charts, he studied human-computer interaction and information visualization to put an end to these tragic crimes against our senses. This ultimately led to a fun side-project visualizing shooting performance in the NBA called Buckets.

They say if you’re snoozin’, you’re losin’, but if you’re Susan, you’re choosin’ … Bocoup! We’re thrilled to welcome Susan Robertson to our engineering team.

As a front-end developer, Susan has built her career implementing designs, creating better user experiences, and building canonical online style-guides for a broad range of clientele. Previously of Fictive Kin and Editorially, Susan is a lover of accessible and responsive websites, usable templates, well-organized CSS, and good, clean markup. Susan has also contributed her knowledge and experience to the Open Web by writing on a variety of topics for A List Apart and The Pastry Box.

Friends of the Coop have grown accustomed to double-checking our address before stopping by—which makes sense, given that we’ve moved a few times in the past two years:

Well, friends, I’m pleased to report we’ve finally put down roots—very long, sturdy roots—at 201 South Street.

Pam Drouin really drew us in with her impressive design skills and warm personality… so we’re thrilled to announce that she’s joined the team at Bocoup!

Pam started her career as a librarian, having earned degrees in English Literature as well as Library and Information Science, but ultimately, her love of computers and meaningfully organized information inspired her to explore a career in design. Pam joins us most recently from Proquest and the University of Washington, where she spent time in product and design roles, further deepening her skills in user interaction and experience, content strategy, and information architecture.

Our pal and longstanding Bocouper Greg Smith has left Bocoup to work with the fine folks at Brightcove.

Greg joined Bocoup back in 2011, and he's accomplished quite a lot since then! Between completing 91 (his ambitious crowd-funded role playing game), single-beardedly developing boxbox, launching the ever-popular learnlayout.com (and the not-quite-as-popular isitmarchfirst.com), and presenting a bunch of great tech talks, he's certainly kept himself busy. But his contribution to our team has been far more integral than a laundry list of achievements could describe.
