Senior dev specialising in clean, maintainable code and keeping tech debt low

I'm a full-stack Rails developer (although recent projects have concentrated on API-only backends with ReactJS front ends managed by different teams). I've been working with Rails for over 10 years (since version 3.x) and have specialised in making code bases that are easy for teams to read, understand and maintain. Key to those goals are: using standardised code styles (ensuring RuboCop and the team's practices are perfectly aligned) writing well-structured, easy-to-understand and fast tests constructive and collaborative code reviews ensuring documentation, from git histories to READMEs and other materials (online and offline) records useful, meaningful information that can be easily kept up to date and in sync with any code changes I've recently been adding GraphQL to my skill set, which also includes PostgreSQL, ElasticSearch, Redis and other languages (Swift, PHP, JavaScript, and more). On the front end, I have experience both with Rails' native toolset and with ReactJS, Next.js and React Native. I also have experience of platform-native toolsets such as SwiftUI to deliver applications that feel intrinsically like part of the user’s mobile experience. I've worked on projects of various sizes, from scheduling and booking software for a major tech training company to systems allowing TV distributors to sell thousands of hours of programming all over the world. Ideally, I'm looking to work on products with which I can feel personally invested – an exciting product or tech-for-good project would definitely suit me better than a fintech role.

Building your next great thing with 10+ years of Ruby on Rails experience

High response rate

With more than 10 years of experience in Ruby and Ruby on Rails, I have a track record of delivering high-quality solutions that meet both functional and design requirements. Throughout my career, I have collaborated closely with product managers and UI/UX designers to scope, design, and implement complex projects. I have also worked with both back end and front end technologies, including React with TypeScript. In addition, I have some experience with a variety of other programming languages, including Go, Elixir, C++, Haskell, Python, and Java, as well as developing my own toy programming languages and DSLs. As a passionate learner, I am always looking for opportunities to work with like-minded people and build the best software possible. During my PhD, I worked on the open-source project Bohrium, which allows for automatic parallelization of NumPy and Ruby code written in C++. Additionally, my implementation of a CSP framework for Ruby benchmarked better than the Python implementation at the time. I am comfortable working remotely and believe that effective communication is key to successful collaboration. When I am not at my computer, I enjoy geocaching, playing board games, and cooking. Jokingly, I have made stickers for my own jam brand. I am committed to becoming the best version of myself and would welcome the opportunity to bring my skills and enthusiasm to your team.
