Introduce yourself.

I’m Kiere El-Shafie, CTO of Kamana.

What does a typical day look like for you?
Writing code. Period. 😉I usually have a coding session in the morning and if I didn’t get an early morning bike ride in, then I’ll go riding around lunch if it’s not 100 degrees with 100% humidity. After cooling off, I’ll have another session of coding in the afternoon. It’s not always coding… sometimes it’s software architecture or setting up infrastructure or designing security.

What inspired you to start your company?
Our friend Trey (co-founder John Modica) is a travel nurse, as was my mom. They are bombarded by calls, emails, and texts about jobs that don’t fit their preferences or qualifications. We seek to end all that wasted time and inefficiency in the market.

What’s your favorite thing about Virginia?
Backpacking on the Appalachian Trail (AT) or cycling somewhere near the James River.
