After working in IT systems and networking from 2008 to 2016, Tucker made the jump to software engineering. This only occurred because of an encounter with a new technology at the time called Ethereum smart contracts. Inspired by smart contracts and their disruptive capabilities to change the way we do business, Tucker knew he wanted to contribute to the emerging blockchain sector - and the gatekeeper was learning to code. Since then, he's worked in both the federal and private sector for and with organizations such as SAIC, Sandia Labs (DoE), Strategic Command (DoD), Gitlab, and now Splunk, with roles in software engineering and solutions architecture. While working with the DoD, he even had the priviledge of pushing his code to Air Force 1. When seeking to join the SplunkDLT team he was asked "Why Splunk?", and his answer was "The way we 'data' is about to change, and Splunk is at the forefront of that evolution. I want to be a part of it.
