Sean McMains Joins Handsome as Director of Technology
Handsome is a holistic experience design agency based in Austin.
We create deeply connected brands, services and products that enable powerful relationships between businesses and people.
Web, mobile, and XR software development veteran, Sean McMains, joins Handsome to lead a growing technology implementation team.
In his role, Sean will ultimately be responsible for the quality, craft, and execution of our technology service offering — from well-established web, mobile, and software infrastructure offerings, to emerging spaces like virtual and augmented realities, machine learning, IoT, blockchain, and more.
“It is not very often that a technology leader at the director level doesn’t mind getting their own hands dirty. I am beyond excited to have Sean’s expertise on hand to direct and manage our technology implementation teams going forward. Having him also wear the hat of an individual contributor will allow us to design an industry-leading engineering practice. Even though it’s only been a couple of weeks, Sean has already established an excellent relationship with our engineers and peers from other practice areas. Right out of the gates, he’s brought an immense amount of added value to a current VR project we’re running with a Fortune 50 company.” Alex Zub, Partner, Technology
Sean kicked off his software engineering career in the mid-nineties, and has been leading development teams since 2006. Having spent the last 7 years at software development agencies, he brings comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge, expertise, and experience on a wide variety of software technologies.
“I've joined Handsome because of the combined strengths of the company's practice, their portfolio, and their people. I'm excited to get to build great work for clients and a top-notch developer culture while expanding the implementation team and its capabilities." Sean McMains, Director of Technology Implementation
Sean’s interest in playing music, literature, hiking, philosophy, building medieval siege weaponry, and board game design rounds out the value he’s adding to the team. Keep up with Sean on LinkedIn and Twitter for additional insights into his world and the growing tech team here at Handsome.
