Hey there, I'm Michael! I've had titles such as CTO, VP of Engineering, and Lead Senior Engineer before. I have contributed about a dozen PRs too Rails and many more PRs to other gems in the Ruby and Rails ecosystem.
Currently, I'm working a contract role as a Lead Software Engineer for a "big-tech" company as well as advising a few startups. I am open to new full-time and part-time opportunities so feel free to message me!
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 see how we might work together.
