Greg Jopa


I'm an expert pancake maker who happens to work in software development. I live in the Chicago suburbs and work at PayPal as an Engineering Manager.

Over the past 15 years I've focused on building web applications. I've worked for companies ranging from startups to large dotcoms ( and Throughout my career I've bounced back and forth from being an engineering manager to being an individual contributor. I'm passionate about helping others succeed and creating teams that have fun and trust each other. With every project I work on, I'm a voice for the user and enjoy discovering new ways to optimize the user experience.

I'm a Christian, saved by the amazing grace of Jesus Christ through faith. Outside of work I spend a lot of time at church teaching Sunday School and playing guitar in the worship band. I love music and try to incorporate it into most of my blog posts.
