If you are looking for a hard working Back-End Engineer that can learn complex concepts quickly and efficiently, has experience working and building web applications as part of a remote team, and that appreciates the power that empathetically designed software has to affect positive change in the world, then I believe I am that candidate. I am a passionate, relentlessly curious programmer looking to contribute to, and learn from, a high performing, good-natured team of diverse individuals that share my love of writing elegant, maintainable code and enriching the lives of others.
After obtaining my chemistry degree and working as a quality assurance lab technician for four years, I realized that it lacked the opportunities to explore, learn, and solve challenging problems that I needed to find fulfillment in my career. That’s when I decided to take a leap and pursue a career in Software Engineering. I left my job and enrolled in the Turing School of Software and Design, where I graduated with a focus on creating professional back-end APIs. As a developer, I have experience building applications in Ruby on Rails with PostgreSQL databases, all while working in remote teams, practicing Agile/Scrum project management methodologies, test driven design with RSpec, continuous integration and continuous deployment with Travis CI and Heroku, and professional version control workflow using Git and GitHub.
