My experience at a startup has allowed me to gain a deep understanding of Rails 7, Hotwire, Stimulus, and ViewComponents while working across the stack to build new features. I'm also keenly aware of the business considerations that go into the process of writing software. This hands-on experience has given me a solid foundation and an ability to tackle complex challenges with confidence. Some other technologies I'm familiar with include Github Actions and Meilisearch. I've also used Go, Typescript React, ReactQuery, Redux and RTK for hobby and toy projects.
For project management, I am familiar with tooling like Figma, Trello, Linear and Github. I also have a strong foundation in git workflow.
On a previous project, I implemented an architectural change that reduced our application error rates by ~63%, and was responsible for building our test suite from scratch to ~92% coverage.
One of my strengths is being product minded and asking questions about features. I'm also very capable of translating mocks into a usable application and delivering features to spec with Hotwire. I'm an excellent communicator and have a very collaborative approach to projects and solving technical problems. I love writing tests. I have also taken the initiative to learn and grow independently at every opportunity.
My origin story as a developer is through The Odin Project, and demonstrates my resourcefulness, adaptability, and drive to continuously improve. By actively contributing back to The Odin Project's curriculum and community, I have been able to learn new skills and also grow my mentorship and communication skills. I've also actively contributed to Ruby for Good projects.
When I'm not coding, I immerse myself in analog photography and music. I love the creative freedom in both art forms. I am eager to bring my unique blend of skills and experiences to a dynamic team, contributing to the success of your organization while constantly pushing the boundaries of my own growth.
I've been a professional for just a short while, but I feel that I have a very good understanding of my areas of strengths and my areas of weakness. I am seeking something with more long term stability and hope to find a spot at an established company.
