Milan Stojanovic

Software Engineer



Second-generation American, college grad, and computer nerd - born and raised to a (very) Balkan family in the charming city of West Allis, WI.

Mechanical Engineer turned Software Developer with several years experience in Quality Assurance - pivoting my way into a career that capitalizes on my skills, and merges them into something cohesive and rewarding.

With a passion for STEM, creation, and a drive for continuously challenging and improving myself - I am confident that my cross-functional engineering background and proven team-work skills will make me a versatile utility to any team.
