Northwoods Adds Three New Developers

As the market for experienced software developers tightens, Northwoods continues to attract talent in software development and digital marketing.

OCT. 2, 2017 -- Northwoods Web Solutions is thrilled to welcome three new software developers, Gerry Heidenreich, Amanda Aalpoel and Aaron Stearns. 

“By hiring these talented developers, we are bringing in decades of experience and a group that is eager to continue widening their skillsets. Northwoods will be more than capable to address a fuller variety of our clientele’s needs now and in the future,” said Patrick Bieser, President of Northwoods.

With over 20 years of experience, Heidenreich is an innovator of software development, skilled at streamlining and automating processes and integrating the data of enterprise systems.  Heidenreich has previously attended Northwoods workshops, and was impressed by the opportunity to build partnerships with both clients and colleagues. “They take their culture seriously, focusing on sharing knowledge and ideas. They work hard and play hard, building world-class solutions for high-profile Midwest organizations,” he said.

Aalpoel has a talent for improving interface designs as well as navigating the complexities of financial business intelligence reporting processes and simplifying web interfaces for both usability and mobile functionality. She is thrilled by the opportunity to explore a different aspect of software development in her new position. “Back-end development has always presented interesting challenges to me, which is why I have gotten more interested in it over the years. I am so excited to be able to collaborate and learn from the strong development team here,” she said. 

Finally, Stearns is a full-stack developer and analyst, experienced in mobile-friendly design and the execution and delivery of complicated technology and business process scenarios. “I’m excited to contribute to an already impressive pool of talent. The collaboration and conversations at Northwoods are something that our team has always practiced and it’s exciting to be part of a larger group with the same mindset,” he said.

Northwoods Web Solutions has seen an increase demand for custom web development as well as requests for more complex capabilities in addition to digital marketing strategies and execution.

“We are extremely committed to adapting and maturing with the industry in order to provide our clients with the best websites, thought leadership, digital strategies and content management as possible.  In recent years, our clientele has demanded more sophisticated services and websites that integrate the latest technology and design trends, and we are dedicated to providing it,” Bieser said.

Northwoods Web Solutions has increased its staff by 15% in 2017, and was recently named one of Milwaukee’s Best Places to Work in 2017 by the Milwaukee Business Journal
