About me

Hey there! I'm Emili Kaiman, Software Engineer and artist. I am passionate about creating apps with the user experience in mind. I have a bachelors degree in Art Sciences and a minor in Business Entrepreneurship. I'm looking to become an impactful part of a team that allows me to continue to embrace a growth mindset.

With a multitude of work experiences, I've obtained the ability to adapt to any situation and effectively communicate and collaborate within a diverse team. My former job as a pottery instructor exposed me to the feeling of fulfillment that comes with helping people bring their ideas to life and I'm enthusiastic to have another career where I can turn others thoughts and dreams into an innovative and viable product!

I'm thrilled to have found a career path that promotes life-long learning and utilizes critical thinking, and I'm always up for a challenge!

In my free time, I travel and hike. After college I solo thru-hiked nearly 1000 miles of the PCT from Mexico to South Lake Tahoe, and then spent time trekking through Nepal where I summited multiple passes, the highest which was 17,790 ft. I'm driven and highly-motivated in my personal and professional life.
