My name is Jess Albrecht and I am a Technology Support Specialist, Unity Developer and Programmer, and a passionate Gamer. I like to help others solve problems in ways that they understand and find solutions to problems I don’t understand. I like to bring people together to participate in the things they love and share the things that I love. I strive to bring health and balance to different areas of life that are wrought with over consumption and imbalance. I like to play games with other people that are easy to learn and enjoy as well as develop further skills that bring a sense of growth, challenge, and accomplishment.
I’m currently passionate about learning and utilizing Unity and C# in more ways to strengthen my skills for better production of my personal projects. I recognize not working in a Software Engineering field puts me at a huge disadvantage as I am not able to learn as much each day as other programmers so it’s my intent to move in that direction. I’ve built a morning habit of working on my own personal Unity Project before work and have been at it for about a year now.
In 2017 I was managing, maintaining and troubleshooting 13 HTC Vive virtual reality sets hardware and software for Virtual Sports in Tukwila, Washington. In doing so I helped pioneer the process for executing large scale throughput and education of customers for the latest in virtual reality experiences. I also gained valuable management experience through supervising 7+ employees, engaging customers, delegating tasks, checking on work quality, and handling tills. Virtual Sports serves 50+ customers daily and 100+ customers on weekends. I established and maintained relations with those customers while identifying and addressing their needs. I also collaborated with Software Developers; Reviewing feature design, networking availability, ease of use and access and consumer audience for the virtual reality market at Virtual Sports.
Throughout that year I also helped produce multiple off-site marketing events with HTC Vives including the largest HTC Vive production ever with 37 Vive setups for the thousands of attendees at Century Link Field Event’s Center for GE2 Live 2017. These events required me to manage operations and schedules, troubleshooting, setup and tear down, communications, transportation, necessary materials and inventory, employees and volunteers, demonstrations, production, and marketing presence.
