Curt Helmerich, Senior Software Engineer
Hometown: Newark, Delaware
Unofficial role: Best Dressed in Tech
Fun fact: I’ve had a beard since October 2001.
Grooming confession: I get my hair cut at the barber once per week. I probably spend more on haircuts than any of the women in the office!
Currently loving: Brooks Brothers Non-Iron Shirts
Worth the splurge: Shoes—they’re practical because I walk a lot and a good pair can instantly add something to even a basic outfit of t-shirt and jeans.
Best grooming trick: I use Toweldry Paste Styler on my beard.
