Congratulations Bill Ruby!
Some people get into it for the long-haul.
That’s been the case with Bill Ruby. After 20+ years, Bill is winding down and preparing to do a whole list of things that seem to have never been checked off as he heads into retirement. The man is a specialist and knows the ins and outs of his products and services like nobody else. Thanks for the solid effort and deep knowledge Bill. Have a little fun now, won’t ‘ya!
We asked him to share his work history with us:
I started at Union Pacific Technologies in 1996 as a contractor in the St. Louis IT shop with primary duties as a mainframe developer for the Host 43 EDI gateway application. That work continued until 2001.
Later, I returned and converted to an Union Pacific employee in 2004, moving from St. Louis to Omaha, and continued to serve as a mainframe developer. My career expanded with taking over development and maintenance of the Agilink email and fax messaging system plus responsibilities for the stand-alone FTP service for Agilink through 2007.
When our department was moved to PST, I became a PST employee and continued duties of gateway mainframe development, email and fax messaging and stand-alone FTP developer and have been continuing with that until my very last day.
