Steve Persch

Agency & Community Engineer

Steve is a developer with 10 years of experience building WordPress and Drupal sites. While interning at a theatre company in college, Steve overheard the artistic director say they needed a blog and an online magazine. Steve volunteered to build the sites and WordPress 2.0.4 got the job done. His path was changed and he's been building sites since.

Steve spent much of his career at Palantir.net, a Drupal-focused web agency. Working at Palantir, Steve built sites for a range of clients including Foreign Affairs, Marketplace, Public Radio International, and many higher education institutions. Steve was a co-maintainer of the Workbench suite of modules. You can find patches from Steve all over Drupal core and contributed modules.

In his role at Pantheon, Steve works primarily with agencies as they learn Pantheon's tools. Often that means guiding developers as they use Terminus, Quicksilver, and other Pantheon power tools. You can see some of Steve's work on GitHub in the Continuous Integration scripts that test Pantheon maintained WordPress plugins and Drupal modules.
