After spending time with Apple, Google, and American Airlines, Jonathan McKinley joined Technology Partners in March as a Software Technical Lead – and he fit right in.
His past roles with American Airlines focused on data science, data engineering, and flight ops software engineering. Prior to American Airlines, he was part of the Google Tech Exchange and a Location Motion and Wireless Software Engineer Intern at Apple.

How did you get started in software development?
I’ve been coding since I was in middle school, so technology has always been part of my career plans. I really started getting into data science and engineering in college – I graduated with a master’s in data science from The University of Texas at Austin – and have gone further into that sector with every job.
Can you describe the culture of Technology Partners?
Working at Technology Partners is a breath of fresh air. Our leadership team is open and receptive to new ideas, so you feel like your voice is heard. The flexibility to work on fun projects with great people is just icing on the cake. It’s also a very responsive environment. You feel like there is room to grow and you can speak into your personal development plan.
What is different about Technology Partners compared to some of the other companies you’ve worked with, for example, American Airlines, Google, and Apple?
I’ve only worked at large, global technology companies in the past so working for Technology Partners has been extremely rewarding. Our team has a real taste for new things and adding bigtime value to our customers – and there isn’t as much red tape to get it done. Here, you’re encouraged to come up with new ideas. If you have enough factual evidence to support your recommendations, you can be implementing it the next week.
