From interpreting to equipment distribution to managing personnel, Adam Ellsworth, our Senior Database Administrator, has been a rock star in developing custom software to meet our unique needs for over 7 years. Adam originally developed the Interpreter Scheduling software that allows CSD’s nationwide Interpreter Referral Services to be centrally managed and accessible from anywhere. Along the way, he also engineered a program that keeps track of all of our contact center agents:
Today, he’s mainly focused on making equipment distribution more efficient so agents can spend more time helping consumers instead of entering data.
A native of Southeast South Dakota, Adam went to school at Dakota State University and earned a degree in Computer Science. While working for a software development firm, he became interested in CSD’s projects and passionate work environment. He appreciates the opportunity to work at a non-profit company where the focus is serving a community.
When not swimming in SQL programming, Adam spends his spare time mixing live music for bands and being a stage manager for regional concerts. In January, he spent 8 days on a mission trip in Haiti which culminated in a 3-day music festival where he was lead engineer. “What I love about both live music production and software development is that, at the core, you’re just problem solving.”
