Kris Kirkland
Kristopher Kirkland, UNIX Engineer, Epic Systems
WHS Class of 2006


What do you do?
I work for Epic Systems, a medical software company based in Verona, WI as a UNIX Engineer. Epic creates Electronic Medical Records software that is used in hospitals across the country (and some overseas!) to store patient data and help doctors improve patient care (woo!) and meet regulatory requirements (okay, less fun). I’d say that I don't do anything directly useful but instead help keep the things running so the developers can be useful. I tend to focus on improvements to tools and processes that help my team members do our job easier and on a larger scale. Also, many members of my team don't have a formal Computer Science background and so I often push to improve the quality of our code and our coding processes, proselytizing code reviews and unit tests, and help team members talk through the best way to abstract out a problem.
