James Higginbotham has over 15 years of experience and has architected, built, and deployed software products for both Fortune 500 companies and early-stage startups.

James has delivered a wide variety of solutions for the healthcare, commercial insurance, non-profit, and airline industries. His solutions include software-as-a-service, supply chain management, and building multi-sided marketplace solutions. 

James has deployed to the public cloud and internal data centers. His goal is to design and build software that balances the complexity of scalability and distributed computing with the ease of a modular, testable codebase. He believes that APIs should be designed to solve problems based on the workflows of the industry while providing a great developer experience.

He is the founder of an Austin-based services company that focuses on API design, development, and cloud infrastructure.
