Michael Tighe


Michael was born in New Jersey but moved to California with his family after he finished Kindergarten. He currently lives in Foothill Ranch with his wife and has lots of family in the area.

Michael didn’t waste any time getting down to business and getting an early start in the game. He’s been using computers since he was a kid and began writing software when he was 12. Fast forward a few years and he was beginning his development career in 2011 with Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. After a few years there he left with (now) fellow Zumasys employee Andy Takacs to join Millennia Mortgage and then continued to maintain document storage/retrieval software at Acris Solutions. He made one last pit stop at The Nerdery in the Minneapolis area working as a Software Engineer before finally finding his place at Zumasys.

As a Senior Developer at Zumasys, his primary goal is to streamline internal processes and perform the non-jBASE / MultiValue development tasks so that our other guys can focus on that and keep being awesome at what they do.

How does what you do benefit customers? If I do my job right, other people do their jobs better and faster, which indirectly benefits customers.
