Hire Me!


As a software developer with extensive experience in both Python and JavaScript, my soft skills set me apart. I approach new challenges with confidence and humility. I break down complex problems into manageable parts while understanding my strengths and areas for growth.

I'm eager to leverage these skills in a smaller, remote, high-trust environment where I can play a pivotal role in driving growth and innovation, along with the opportunity to mentor new developers.

March 2021 - November 2023

Software Developer

My primary role involved managing our internal research pipelines, which are critical for handling an extensive amount of data, over five petabytes. I played a key part in updating our systems by co-leading the shift from using Luigi to Airflow, which significantly modernized our research workflow. To assist our Research analysts in adapting to Airflow, I developed custom wrappers that facilitated a smooth transition.

My involvement with Airflow extended beyond our company as I actively engaged with the wider community through contributing to the Airflow GitHub repository. This included making pull requests and reporting bugs to help improve the tool for all users.

I also took the initiative to enhance our data processing by converting MapReduce overnight jobs into PySpark, which resulted in gains in both efficiency and code readability. Additionally, I shared my knowledge across the company by delivering presentations on Git best practices, with a focus on maintaining code integrity and fostering better collaboration among our teams.

I also worked closely with the User Experience (UX) and Audio teams to design and incorporate unique sounds into the product, enhancing its features.

To improve our work processes, I established a new standard for debug logging within our department, aiming to benefit future projects with more streamlined troubleshooting. When faced with tight schedules, I efficiently overhauled the process for incorporating CarPlay and Android Auto into our system, ensuring we met our deadlines.

Outside of engineering tasks, I took the initiative to promote STEM careers by speaking at high school events and helping with college recruitment, encouraging students to consider futures in technology.

As an intern, I worked as a full-stack developer on a team tasked with creating a communication app for more than 200 hospital clients. My role included engineering a feature for message attachments, which I built using Ruby on Rails and ReactJS.

I was committed to maintaining high quality standards and achieved 100% test coverage for the new features I developed, utilizing testing tools like Jest and Capybara.

I also had the opportunity to present my project to an audience of over 50 current employees, including team leads and managers, which was an enriching experience.

Working within an Agile framework, I was an active participant in daily standups and weekly sprints, which sharpened my skills in iterative development and team collaboration.
