Charlie has worked for more than ten years in the software development and platform space. He started by consulting at Sogeti where he completed projects for Procter & Gamble, General Electric, and other various companies. As a consultant, he built applications using a range of technologies, including PHP, .Net, Flex, and others. He then began working for Hyperquake, a digital agency, where he built applications for more than a dozen clients with Node.js, PHP, or .Net as the primary back-end with a touch of Ruby.
In addition to starting Losant and Modulus, Brandon Cannaday, Michael Kuehl, and Charlie founded a company in 2007 named Switch on the Code (SOTC). SOTC was primarily a content site for tutorials on how to create software with a variety of programming languages. The content was written in-house by the small group. In 2012 SOTC was acquired by Tech.pro for the content library and site traffic.
