Meet Our Team


Matt Pessa, Software Engineer

Describe your role at Monsoon.

I’m a software engineer focusing on the Monsoon desktop application. The majority of what I’m doing right now is learning about the code base and making improvements. I also do work on the Service Tier team dealing with the micro services that keep our pricing competitive.


What is the most interesting part of your job?

The most interesting part of my job is that there is always something new. Whether it’s something that I need to learn or just figuring out a new solution, the problems are rarely the same twice.


What types of challenges do you face?

I face quite a few with technical challenges due to learning a new programming language and figuring out how all of the existing code and services work together.


What are you currently working on?

I’m currently working on bug fixes and improvements for our desktop application. I am also launching a new Gitlab server locally and improving the backend services that we have.


What do you like to do outside of work?

I enjoy many activities outside of work including playing soccer, spending time with my family, and playing board, tabletop, and video games.  I’m also a member of the Oregon Air National Guard where I work as a maintainer for the F-15 aircraft stationed in Portland.
