10yr+ Empathic Generalist | Chaotic Good | Full Stack (lean ops/backend) | Bug Whisperer

New profile

Seasoned in slinging code and solving problems 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. Agile in both mind and method, I lead projects that punch well above their weight, mentor with a mission, and always have a fun side project or two in the works. 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. 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 -- Have worked in startups at all stages of their life cycle as both an introverted grumpy solo developer and led teams, helped make product decisions, mentored other developers, etc. I chafe a bit at schedules, but occasionally I'll figure out a big that would have been a problem very soon at 3am and just fix it. 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. -- Have PhD level statistics work, 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. --

Hi! I'm Liz 👋🏼 I'm about as full-stack 🥞 as they come. I started as a QA and automation engineer and now I'm a senior full-stack engineer focusing on Rails and React. Early on as a QA I worked on projects from writing SQL scripts to check data, to automation engineering, to React Native applications, and even helping implement Kafka instances and a team transition to Kubernetes. Then I moved on to development, mostly focusing on Rails / React stacks. I also am very comfortable working in Python. Now I've been a full stack developer for a few years, always carrying my QA mindset with me. I love exploring the ins and outs of a problem, and figuring out where I can pick it apart and expose weaknesses. I'm really great at building relationships with stakeholders, establishing trust and cooperation so that we can all move forward with a project in a very pragmatic way. Pairing with coworkers is always very enjoyable for me. I like the collaboration, but I really value the mentorship the most. Teaching juniors git has become a mainstay for me, as well as coaching them to maintain a calm mindset while debugging, encouraging them to move through issues in a systematic way. And of course I always fit in robust testing, showing folks how to create test suites and pipeline automation that will improve their workflow. Let's talk about how I can contribute to your team and stack 🙌🏻

Full Stack Rails & React Developer with 15+ years experience

New profile

Who am I? I am Tom Dallimore, a developer originally from the UK but now living in SEA. I currently work as a freelance Rails & React Developer, my 2 favourite frameworks that I thoroughly enjoy using (so far!). Additionally, in my spare time, I am managing a form builder I launched late last year called JotJab and building a subscription/membership application for the Shopify App’s ecosystem. But before we go any further, let’s get to my story and why I think we are a great fit for each other. My story Let’s get started. I am a 34 year old developer who has been developing all kinds of applications and software for the past 16 years. When I started software development (when I was about 16 years old) I learned the basics of HTML, CSS and a little bit of javascript. After that I moved onto PHP and C# for a small time but then stumbled upon Rails. I became intrigued, since when did writing code become so fun and fast? At the time I was working at Dyson as a C# developer, but in the evenings and mornings I was building my own little applications - a lot of fun. I eventually settled on creating an ecommerce app (yeah, I didn’t know at the time how much work that would be), which eventually grew into Trado - an open source e-commerce application. Fast forward a year or so and I was offered a job to work at an agency in Beijing. It was a contract based job which was primarily on upgrading, managing and debugging Rails applications, certainly an interesting experience. From there I decided I wanted to dive back into the world of freelance. I helped several companies launch apps using a mixture of React and Rails, including an online store for PPE supplies, a charity donation web + mobile app and an app for the Shopify Partners ecosystem. Why me? I love to experiment and build tools which help people’s everyday lives be more productive and fun! I would say the most rewarding part of being a developer is seeing apps I helped create become a rewarding tool for the user. I’m not just a developer Over the years I’ve worked on projects with teams and on my own. The latter meant I needed to take up other responsibilities to ensure the delivery of a product. These included tasks such as, server management, UX/Product design, graphic design (my father ran a graphic design agency) and from time to time marketing/branding. Guess you could call it a swiss army knife of skills! Side projects As I previously mentioned, since a young age I’ve always enjoyed tinkering with stuff in my free time. The most recent project is JotJab. At the time I was using Typeform to create forms for communicating with audiences on the web, but I couldn’t stomach their high pricing. So I built an alternative using React, Rails, TailwindCSS and Vite, all hosted on Hetzner and Cloudflare using the amazing Dokku engine (seriously, the best open source PaaS out there!). Staying in touch • I keep updated with the OSS community on Github • I follow a lot on Twitter and actively share daily • I follow a few YouTubers. • And I dabble in Reddit, from time to time. Soft skills I like to talk, throw ideas around, and have long conversations about certain topics. I love to experiment with “outside the box” ideas. I do have opinions, I like to discuss and have a conversation about my opinions, but I also love to change and adapt my opinions based on new information. After hours • I’m always keen to learn new technologies, currently experimenting with Go and Flutter • I have a passion for photography and videographer, mostly when taking trips into the countryside • I do enjoy watching a good series now and again, like Shogun There is a lot more I would like to talk about, but I hope I’ve already convinced you enough to start a conversation. I look forward to hearing from you.
