Principal Software Engineer Joshua Meriyah is a senior developer and engineering manager with a passion for creating software to improve people’s lives. Joshua joined Agile Velocity with experience in both creating his own cloud-based educational software and leading high-performing corporate teams of developers. Joshua works from a foundational principle that writing software constitutes a unique and valuable form of service–the best code creates helpful and high-quality experiences for end users, and comprises an architecture, syntax and design easily understood and maintained.

Prior to his current career, Joshua worked as a public school teacher in Baltimore city, where he strove to inspire his students to develop the discipline, determination, and belief in themselves to live their dreams. Joshua is a certified teacher of meditation yoga, and habits. Outside of work, he loves to spend time with his family–wife Kelsey, daughter Sage, and dog Sitali.
