Senior Technical Manager, Application Development

  • What’s something you’d like to learn?

    When I was little, my mom forced me to take piano lessons for several years until I finally revolted enough that I could quit. Thirty years later, it’s something I wish that I knew. I can still play some chords and slowly (SLOWLY) read sheet music, but I would love to be able to really play a piano.

  • What are three things you can’t live without?

    Coffee, pasta, and oxygen

  • Where’s the most interesting place you’ve been?

    After college, I moved to New Orleans for work for several years. You won’t find anything like it in the U.S., or really in the world. I only left because work transferred me out of there kicking and screaming (although it was probably best for my health and diet).


Andy Terbovich, a Senior Technical Manager, Application Development in our Energy Services Group, enjoys playing the guitar, cooking, and being active! Andy is a husband and a father of two working remotely from St. Louis, Missouri.


Andy’s role at McCormick Taylor entails building custom applications primarily for clients in the energy sector, but also can include the transportation sector. The applications typically focus on environmental inspections, maintenance issue tracking, and project permit screening or tracking. Andy develops these applications hand in hand with internal subject matter experts and our clients which helps to identify the core business process required, build a management application around that process, and then have boots-on-the-ground users working in the application. His technical work can include developing databases, programming the application logic, building out the user interface and visual design, and establishing and maintaining all the application infrastructure and cloud computing resources.


When asked what he likes most about his job, Andy noted, “I like that I have a variety of tasks throughout my day. I get to both work with a lot of different people, internal and external, and I also do a lot of technical, hands-on work. I really like the mental challenge of programming, but I like that I also have a lot of breaks from that work to do more interpersonal work. Doing nothing but programming would wear me out.”


Reflecting on his favorite moment at McCormick Taylor, Andy cited the first major project he worked on as developer. He had to rebuild an existing application into a new format and framework, which took months to accomplish. The final release required a busy weekend of work to migrate and transform the old database records into a new database schema for the new application. He remembered being exhausted but having a satisfying feeling of accomplishment at the end of the process.
