Hi there! I am Colin Bowern, a passionate technologist interested in product, delivery, and engineering of modern apps and services. At present, I am working at Gentrack, working to unlock the value in their billing, customer, and utility market interface products through an open platform. My previous work spans music, financial services, public sector, and technology industries including start-up and multi-national organizations like Microsoft, Johnson Controls, Brink’s, officialCOMMUNITY, and Pushpay. My roles typically involve working across technology and business teams to drive innovation through product thinking and software engineering excellence. For the several years, I have been a part of the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional as part of my contributions to the developer community. Currently I reside in New Zealand with my wife and kids where we enjoy winters without snow.
