Hi, I'm Anthony 'Tony Techdebt' Thielen.

You can call me Tony.

I am a senior software engineer and freelance photographer. I work on backends employing microservice architecture and streaming tech. I'm currently working with @Branch's Platform Engineering Team building a platform to help companies accelerate payments and empower working Americans with accessible, fee-free, inclusive and transparent financial products.

Depending on how you know me, I'm a Senior Engineer at @Branch (formerly @BestBuy, @Optum), consult out of @RebelSolutions, shoot photos through @Tony_from_MN, and run the ecomm store @MoistHaus.

Occasionally I write a post on @TheCapriciousEngineer and add cooking recipes to @TechsMarthaStewart. On a more personal note, I've seen Dirty Dancing more times than A New Hope and listen to Call Me Maybe unironically.

Want to work on something together? Or talk nerdy? Reach out!
