Josh Niemeyer

Lead Developer

Josh loves technology. Since he was a kid, he’s been fascinated with computers and what can be done with them. He loves keeping up with the next best thing in the technology world, and that giddy feeling that comes with assembling the individual components of a computer worth its salt.

Josh is a man of many talents: he enjoys playing the guitar and writing music, is a devoted coffee fanatic (which David happily condones), and enjoys Star Trek Netflix binges. He’s also been known to stay up late reverse engineering code to understand how it works. When he’s not doing computer stuff, he’s spending time with his wife and kids.

How would you explain your job to a four year old?

I spend 8 hours a day typing colorful bits of text that help run the known universe.

Who or what is the biggest inspiration to your job?

I enjoy building things that do something that others find useful. That's my main drive.

Five words that describe working at Control Yours.

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee, Coffee, Code

What’s the first thing gone from the Control Yours fridge or snack cupboard? Is it your fault?

Peanut Butter Crackers. You think this questionnaire is going to make me fess up?? Not a chance!

Who ends up making coffee the most in the office?

Depends on the time of year. I try to beat David to the coffee pot because I like my coffee black as night!

What would your life be like without graphic designers?

Everything would function perfectly. But it would also look like your toddler's coloring book.

Biggest pet peeve?

Chewing with your mouth open. The smacking. It hurts 🙉😩...
