Lead Engineer with 14+ years of Ruby and Rails ExperiencePrivate information
Hey there, I'm Michael! I've had titles such as CTO, VP of Engineering, and Lead Senior Engineer before. Currently, I'm exploring all opportunities and have a ton of Rails experience to offer. I have contributed about a dozen PRs to Rails and many more PRs to other gems in the Ruby and Rails ecosystem.
I love to do both deep IC work and am also open to exploring new engineering management and leadership positions. I truly enjoy mentoring engineers and coaching them on Ruby and Rails best practices and approaches.
I have experience with everything from software architecture, security engineering, database design, query optimization, and Rails performance improvements, as well as plenty of front-end development with everything from jQuery to React to now Turbo and Stimulus. In fact, despite my experience throughout the backend, I find front-end and ultimately "full-stack" product development to be the most fulfilling!
Don't hesitate to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to explore how we might work together.
