Bruce Cubit brings a wealth of information technology skills and experience to FOCUS, currently serving as Lead Developer for the Leonine Public Affairs firm.
Bruce started working in the IT field in the late 1990’s as a subcontractor of The Unisys Corporation. He immediately fell in love with the profession and has continued to work within the field in many different roles since. Bruce initially joined FOCUS in 2011, serving for the next seven years as Web Developer and the Director of Information Technology. He co-designed the overall architecture of the FOCUS web application and collaborated with a small team to design and launch new features. He was responsible for quality assurance, maintaining code integrity, organization and readability and ensuring the responsiveness and usability of the application. Bruce was also responsible for overseeing a variety of technical projects in alignment with FOCUS and LPA’s organizational goals.
He left the firm to pursue new skill development opportunities, serving as a Full Stack Developer (Magento) for Bag Riders Air Ride from 2018-2020 and as an Ecommerce Developer for Crimson Agility in 2021. Unable to resist the inexorable pull of working with his favorite former colleagues, Bruce returned to FOCUS and LPA full time in late 2021 and currently serves as Full Stack Developer and self-described Code Monkey.
When not encouraging the staff to try unplugging and re-plugging in their devices, Bruce loves being in the woods and exploring, hiking with his best friend and partner in life and hanging out with his dogs. Bruce also loves standing in front of an easel trying to revisit his travels through color. Like many oil painters, he’s happy to say “I love the smell of linseed oil in the morning.”
