Ben is an extremely talented and hardworking engineer who cares about the efficiency of the rest of the team and he is generous with his time. I've had the pleasure of working with Ben for 3 years and have seen him grow from a very skilled intern to a valuable full-time software engineer.
Ben keeps up-to-date on changes to the landscape of software and passes on this knowledge to the rest of the team; we've learned to rely on him to be aware of what technologies to try when we're looking at building new products. Likewise, he's diligent at sharing best practices for dealing with existing code due to his meticulous nature and willingness to understand how things work under the hood.
As an engineer, Ben's not limited to one particular part of the stack; he's someone who can change focus quickly when necessary in order to get things done. His dedication and workflow are things that inspire the best out of other engineers.
Ben has done great work with me as an undergraduate research assistant in summer 2011 in Northwestern. He is brilliant. I think, he is the smartest student I've ever worked with. He is creative, reliable, independent, and out-going. Hire him, and you won't have regrets!!!
