New profile

Seasoned code wrangler with over a decade in Ruby on Rails and a past life as a social worker and policy researcher. I've got a knack for translating geek speak for humans and wrangling stakeholder needs into delighted users and maintainable code. Somehow, most days, I still like my IDE. Looking to land in a place where code meets impact. Full stack developer that has spent over a decade in the Ruby/Rails ecosystem. I lean ops -> backend, but I can get in there and wrangle JS components and CSS if need be. I often wear at least a little bit of a product manager hat, have been a team lead on large projects, and I even try to remember to write documentation and technical briefs. I'm longwinded in slack, shy in person, didactic and friendly in code reviews, and occasionally down a rabbithole. Loves: Wrangling weird bugs and annoying APIs, refactoring, clear code (for the humans) and good tests (for the robots), figuring out the best places to deliver maximum impact and shipping quickly, teaching myself new things, compassionate communication and collaboration with multiple stockholders, making weird things happen in the CI pipeline Not so loves: JS in general, jerks, arrogance, watching junior developers not get the support they need and thinking it is their fault, refreshing staging for an hour wondering why my debugger isn't getting hit. -- Have worked in startups at all stages of their life cycle as both an introverted grumpy solo developer and team leader, helped make product decisions, mentored other developers, deleted prod a few times, etc. I chafe a bit at schedules, but occasionally I'll figure out a big that would have been a big problem in the future at 3am and just fix it. Love fixing those things. I can meeting during normal human hours though. -- Open to short and long term contracts and FTE for the right fit. Prefer chill flat organizations where everyone likes and respects each other and just gets stuff done. I've shipped features faster at those organizations than any that were focused on relentless hustle. -- Tell me why you believe in your tech and I'll tell you about one of my weird side projects like a Led Zeppelin button or a confessional that floats in the air. -- Have PhD level statistics classes buried in my brain somewhere, know my way around python and some data analysis, have built ETL pipelines - if it has to be done, I'll try to figure out a way to get it done. And the longer you hang around this world, you realize the most important programming language is being able to talk to people in kind and useful ways. -- Senior enough to know that sometimes it's the code you don't write that solves the problem ;) Junior enough to still get excited every time I make LEDs blink with magic words.

My journey in the world of software development has been marked by continuous growth and a passion for solving complex challenges. I've evolved from a Lecturer in web development to a Tech Lead Software Engineer, gaining expertise in various areas along the way. A significant milestone in my career was my role as a Senior Backend Developer / DevOps at Webedia GmbH. There, I not only mastered Ruby on Rails but also improved and configured recommendation systems, elevating user experiences to new heights. In another role as a DevOps / Platform Engineer at anynines, I excelled in automated PaaS management and introduced microservices architecture using Ruby and Golang. My knack for system automation and PaaS application support contributed significantly to the organization's efficiency. Throughout my journey, I've embraced cloud infrastructure, DevOps practices, and leadership roles. My unique skills lie in bridging the gap between development, infrastructure, and system automation, enabling me to tackle challenges that others may find daunting. I'm not just a developer; I'm an innovator who thrives on continuous learning and finding creative solutions in the ever-evolving landscape of technology. With 15+ years of industry experience, I have a proven track record in leading large teams, designing innovative systems, and making significant contributions to the industry. I am well-equipped to set and direct departments and contribute substantially to any challenging projects.

Ruby on Rails Developer

Languages / Frameworks: Ruby, JavaScript, Ruby on Rails, ActiveRecord, SQL, RSpec, Capybara, JSON, GraphQL, HTML, CSS, PostgreSQL, TailwindCSS, Sidekiq, Redis, GraphQL Systems / Practices: OOP, SOA Architecture, Heroku, Render, TDD, CI/CD with GitHub Actions, GitHub, Object-Oriented Programming, Building and Consuming REST APIs, MVC Architecture, CRUD Functionality, Postman As a software developer, I plan on pursuing an opportunity to help others in an alternative way while still allowing me to approach it with the compassion and passion I had while working with kids and helping them grow to be the best version of themselves. I spent the last eight years in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) where I was given the opportunity to help teach children with behavioral health needs or with developmental delays. It was a great experience being able to problem solve in the moment and help teach the kids alternative ways to communicate their wants and needs and see their growth in communication with the work we did together. Opportunities within the field that led to growth meant moving into different positions and spending less time with the kids and those opportunities weren't for me in the end. I decided if I was going to take a step away from working with kids I wanted to do something I could be equally as passionate about while still being able to help others continue to learn and grow. I'm a backend engineer who values compassion, creativity, and helping to create inclusive environments where everyone is seen and heard. I thrive on seeing others succeed and grow to become the best version of themselves. Feel free to message me here or email!
