Rails Production engineer | 🇨🇦 Toronto Canada
Hi there, I am a Rails Production Engineer-- I make Rails app faster🏃, easier to work on, and more reliable 💪. 🥇I focus on the fundamentals: improving database performance using Postgresql, moving work to a background job processor like Sidekiq for managing ⚡ asynchronous tasks within the Rails application, and finally, caching to optimize overall performance ✨. 🔭 As a production engineer, monitoring and observability are critical to my work. I utilize tools like CloudWatch, Datadog, Sentry, and Grafana/Prometheus to maintain a real-time view of system health. 🌱 I often run load tests and benchmarks to understand how services behave in production. 🕐 My approach is incremental, prioritizing thoughtful and measured steps, empathetic 🫂 to the needs and concerns of both the team and customers, and mindful 🧠 of budget constraints and overall project goals.

Experienced & Empathetic Tech Lead • RuboCop Core Team Member
Programming professionally for 20 years. I've spent the last 4.5 years as Backend Lead at Pexels, and previously held lead roles at HYP3R and TalentNest. Primarily interested in backend Team Lead or Engineering Lead positions. Looking for a fully remote role. I am very passionate about software engineering, writing maintainable, testable and clean code that follows good architectural practices. I began as a self-taught programmer as a preteen, and worked as a freelance developer through high school and university. That led to a career in multiple industries (including construction, applicant tracking software, social media and currently stock photography), and a fast rise from individual contributor to tech lead and beyond. In order to give back to the Ruby community, I began heavily contributing to RuboCop (a Ruby linter with 300 million downloads that is a key piece of the toolset for most Ruby developers), culminating being invited to become a core team member at the beginning of 2021. I have held lead seniority roles for more than 12 years. As a manager, I see myself as a developer advocate, and spend a lot of time focusing on the happiness and productivity of my staff. Currently I am the Backend Lead at Pexels. In this capacity at a small company, I have a wide variety of responsibilities, including: Architect, plan, implement, test and ship large complex features and build out process Help non-engineers plan, scope and estimate their projects and participate in organization-wide product planning Triage and respond to security issues in code and infrastructure, including running a bug bounty program Manage and mentor a team of backend engineers of all levels. Procure and negotiate with vendors, including saving the company tens of thousands of dollars in hosting costs Looking forward to hearing from you!
Fullstack Rails developer with experience in Typescript and React, great communicator.
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, but not in a professional capacity. For project management, I am familiar with tooling like Figma, Trello, Linear and Github. I also have a strong foundation in git workflow. On my current project, I'm particularly proud of implementing an architectural change that reduced our application error rates by ~63%, and being responsible for building our test suite from scratch to ~92% coverage. One of my strengths is translating mocks into a usable application, 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.

AI Consultant + Rails Developer
I am a self taught, self guided developer with years of team and lead experience using rails and js frameworks.
I am a self taught web developer with 17 years of professional experience. I started by building custom hand coded websites for many small businesses around Calgary, eventually went to Wordpress and other CMS, and then realized I needed something deeper, and started my full stack adventure. I have learned many languages and frameworks, and while I love Ruby for it’s conventions and amazing ecosystem, I love to dabble in new technologies and learn something new. My most recent new project is a windows app that will serve as a content creation toolkit for my website. (github) I’m looking for either a greenfield project, a legacy project that needs new features, or for short term, I am open to helping to revive a dead codebase.
