J2’s Director of Innovation, Steve Heard has over ten years of development experience in InterSystems Caché, Ensemble and HealthShare. In addition to occasionally being allowed to still code, break and design things, he spends most of his time helping our staff of over 100 employees realize their full potential. We have a lot of talented people at J2 who are solving problems in brilliant ways every day. Steve’s job is to do whatever it takes to ensure that all of our staff and clients benefit from the best of these ideas. Steve prioritizes professional soccer the way that most of us prioritize oxygen. When he’s not in front of his computer he is dreaming of the day the USA wins the World Cup using mostly talent sourced from the Portland Timbers.
