Tim Whitacre

Senior Software Engineer

Tim serves as a Senior Software Engineer at New Story—helping build software that is used both internally and externally to help our team and partners end global homelessness.
Prior to joining New Story, Tim spent 15 years as a software engineer. During that time, he worked for startups, small agencies and even launched two of his own companies, one of which was acquired. He also spent a few years teaching at The Iron Yard, a coding school that helped individuals launch their careers in software development.
In his free time, he and his wife, Steph, spend most of their time with their son, Landon. In the summer, you’ll usually find them at the lake, fishing, and swimming. When it begins to cool off, they can be found playing board games with friends. They also partner with a school in Kenya that teaches design thinking and problem-solving skills to prepare children to create a better future for their communities. Tim enjoys playing music, watching a good Netflix documentary and exploring Atlanta, one whiskey bar at a time.
