David Coker
Director, Technology Division

David had an early affinity for computers, technology, and electronic gadgets and had later interests in software development, business, and finance. Combining these interests, he pursued a degree in Management Information Systems. After graduating, he served as a software engineer developing software products within the medical, financial, environmental, and engineering industries.

As the director of Ideation’s technology division, he applies his skills in process management and attention to detail in managing technology teams. He is known for his methodical qualities and for being the fixer of problems. With regard to technology, whenever he comes up against something he has never done before, he always figures it out. David enjoys solving problems and finding solutions using both software and hardware. His current areas of focus are Ideation’s product frameworks, including open data analysis and integration, DevSecOps (development, security, and operations) infrastructure, IoT products, and identifying and deploying network and desktop tools to keep Ideation’s staff productive. He is passionate about developing organized codes, finding solutions to problems using the latest technologies, and bringing ideas into reality by developing working prototypes.

Away from his Kanban board, David enjoys spending time on the water by boating or fishing and spending time with his family, including his dogs.
