Annie Steenson

Software Engineer - Apple

Software Engineer at one of the largest tech companies in the world. (for legal reasons, I cannot disclose which one in this bio). Recently graduated from university with my Bachelors of Science in Software Engineering. Originally from Nebraska. Now local to the San Francisco Bay Area.

I have interviewed at all the major technology companies (Google, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, Apple) plus some non-traditional tech companies (J.P.Morgan Chase, Accenture, etc).

I specialize in Web Development. I love everything JavaScript: React, Node.JS, Redux, Express, etc. I'm very frontend centric but I am familiar with some backend technologies such as Java, Python, Hadoop, Spark, XML/XSL.

I'm very self-taught. Practice makes perfect! I'd love to help you strategically plan and develop your career. (:
