DataServ, the global Software as a Service (SaaS) provider of document and process automation solutions, has expanded their development staff with the help of LaunchCode -- a St. Louis-based non-profit organization that creates pathways to economic opportunity and upward mobility through apprenticeships and job placement. DataServ has added two LaunchCode apprentices to its Software Product Development (SPD) team and will pair them with experienced DataServ programmers as part of the “pair programming” methodology that LaunchCode utilizes.

Timothy J. Cheuk and Rohail Kidwai have both joined DataServ’s SPD team, and they will help build leading edge, web-based applications within a small team using agile-based processes. After successful completion of their 12-week “apprenticeship,” Cheuk and Kidwai will move into full-time positions at DataServ.

Cheuk graduated from the University of Missouri with a bachelor’s degree in biology and later earned a Juris Doctor from Michigan State University College of Law. This is his first programming position, as he made the decision in early 2013 to move away from his career as an attorney and into programming.

Kidwai graduated from the University of Illinois in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and a minor in computer science. Interested in a career as a programmer, he joined LaunchCode shortly after graduation.

“Tim and Rohail came to us from different professional backgrounds, but with a shared passion for coding and the aspiration to make it their career,” says LaunchCode Business Director Rosa Mayer. “As tremendously driven and skilled people, we knew they'd be a great fit with the team at DataServ. We're delighted for Tim and Rohail and look forward to continuing to work with our partners at DataServ in the years to come.”

DataServ Founder/CEO Jeff Haller adds: “2014 saw DataServ complete one of our most successful sales years ever, and this success has opened up additional opportunities in our development staff. We are one of the original 100 LaunchCode supporters, and we are pleased to contribute to the growth of the technology sector in the St. Louis area. Having already enjoyed tremendous success with our first LaunchCode hire last year, we are thrilled to welcome Timothy and Rohail to DataServ’s SPD team.”
