Ben joined Metova in 2010 as a developer after receiving his degree in Software Engineering at Auburn University. He quickly became an expert at developing for Android, iOS, Flash, and Java-based web development. Ben was promoted to Lead Developer in 2013 and took a more active role in managing the development process and mentoring fellow developers. During this time, he became intrigued with the sales process and its effects on developers and projects. By sitting in on sales calls frequently, reviewing estimates, and implementing tools for the team, Ben developed a general understanding of how to use his technical skills to enhance the sales process.

My name is Ben Coulston, and I'm the Lead Architect here at Metova. I've always wanted to be a developer and part of software because of my love for video games. Ever since I started playing a classic Nintendo console in 1992, I was very interested in the inner-workings of a gaming system. This led to building terribly slow computers from spare parts when I was 10 years old and spending countless hours playing Mario is Missing and The Oregon Trail. I wasn't satisfied with that, and new games with awesome graphics were coming out, so I saved up all of my birthday and Christmas money for a year, and with some help from my parents, built a computer on which I could actually play games with "good" graphics. At the time, my favorite game was Red Alert, a real-time strategy game that allowed you to build up an army base with troops and eventually take over your opponent's base. It's the first game where I started thinking about the metrics that exist within software (money, resource management, cost efficiency, etc.). I started realizing that games (and programs) are all built on pretty basic principles, and software became less magical and more tangible. I realized that I could actually make things like the games I loved someday, so I went for it.
