Before coming to CivilGEO, Ace was working as a freelance software developer doing work in .NET. Ace’s role at CivilGEO is to create and maintain test tools to ensure all of our products are in tip top shape. In his spare time, Ace plays bass and chills out at the Memorial Union Terrace.
Did we mention that Anil likes to crash programs? Trying to put 10 lbs of flour in a 5 lb bag? Just in a day’s work. Anil’s best line is “Why can’t this do that?” Needless to say, our software is a lot stronger with Anil pounding on it.
This Wisconsin native worked at AMD as a hardware design engineer before joining CivilGEO. When he’s not traveling around the globe to places that include Alaska, Galapagos, the Arctic Circle, Norway, Thailand, and China, Ben is hanging out with his two cats, Andes and Bolivar.
A self-described geek who eats, breathes and sleeps software development, Dave has been programming in some form or another since he first learned C++ in the eighth grade. Here at CivilGEO, Dave magically works the functionality of our software with a sleight of hand so smooth that you will never know how he does it. When he’s not in front of a computer, Dave is rooting for the Green Bay Packers and UW Badgers football teams.
Before coming to CivilGEO, Ishan worked at Keane in software development and support. Ishan’s role at CivilGEO is to make certain that all of the moving pieces in software development keep moving in the right direction. In his spare time (when he has any), Ishan can be found relaxing watching football and cricket with his buddies.
Mani‘s a seasoned product manager who’s worked at 3 companies in Silicon Valley.

Mitch comes to CivilGEO via his former role as Managing Director at Omni Capital, where he led the initial venture investment into CivilGEO. His role with CivilGEO is to help us move to the next level of growth and keep us aligned to our strategic vision. When not involved in embarrassingly geekish conversations, Mitch can be found on the golf course.
Nancy joins CivilGEO to help Chris navigate the labyrinth of to-dos that encircles him. By day, she‘s a tech savvy busy body and by night, a passionate mom and proud puppy owner of a Schnoodle named Brooklyn. Since joining CivilGEO, Nancy discovered the key to Chris’ heart: Mallomars and Oreos (single stuffed!).
Pete is multilingual, in that he can speak the widely different languages of design, UX, front-end, and back-end with equal ease. He has worked on high-profile sites for clients including AT&T, Kraft, and Goodyear Tire, and was one of the Senior Product Managers for MS Excel. He’s restless unless he’s learning new things, and keeps the user foremost in his mind when making decisions. Offline, Pete was a jazz musician in a previous life, and currently holds a black belt in Aikido (so not only is our code good, but our office is safe from intruders.)
Sonila is always trying to integrate civil engineering analysis with her latest Facebook posting. Done with your HEC-RAS analysis? Why not click a button and have the flood map results posted on Facebook for all your other engineer friends to check out! On a more serious note, Sonila is a gifted software engineer able to figure out how to make our software run the right direction.
Vishnu stress tests our application, loading models with several thousand cross sections. We think that this guy has a bit of a dark side—he likes breaking things and trying figuring out where the weak spots in our software are. Needless, our programmers dive under their desk when they see Vishnu coming towards them.
