Eben “The Mad Scientist” Palazzolo is the Chief Technical Officer and Lead Angular Developer of Awato and an exceptional creator through experimentation. Eben has earned his epithet as both an independent and in-house web developer by creating custom solutions with his signature this-might-do-the-trick coding style. The name seems to illustrate Eben’s unconventional approach to his craft and his undying inner passion to create stunning websites.
Eben went to the University of New Hampshire to study Business administration and Computer Science, without a definitive career path. He would spend the next two years, working at two major Networking companies in technical support, mostly trouble shooting application difficulties. After earning two certificates in Networking, Eben found his passion in web development, his newest class at UNH.
He soon turned his passion into an obsession, enrolling in two summer Academies for Web Development and then quickly garnering clients as a freelance web developer. Soon after, a Manchester startup, Yabidu, recruited Eben to become their lead in developing applications for major healthcare firms like Tufts and Dana Farber. After finishing his program at Yabidu, Eben was recruited to Flint & Foster by the firm’s creative director. Over 18 months Flint & Foster would pivot away from Digital Marketing and become the Career-Counseling startup Awato.
