I am a software engineer turned career coach. I have a traditional Computer Science background, and have worked at both a startup and a large journalism company as a front-end engineer on both traditional product/engineering/design teams focused on growth and user features, as well web platform-like teams focused on maintenance and re-architecture of a large front-end codebase. I have previously worked as a TA and instructional associate at a large coding bootcamp, and I am currently a software engineering mentor at a career accelerator helping engineers prepare for all aspects of interviews for software engineering roles.
Stats about me:
- 3 years of internship/fellowship experience in bioinformatics and digital humanities + 4 years of industry experience
- attended over 10 hackathons as a student
- I went through a full job search for front-end software engineering roles in August 2020- I applied to 40 companies, half of which resulted in tech screens, and received two offers at well-known medium-sized tech companies.
List of technologies I have professional experience in:
- Libraries/Frameworks: React/Redux · Apollo GraphQL · Emotion (CSS-in-JS) · Jest/Enzyme
- Tooling: Git · husky · Travis CI · Drone CI/CD · webpack · npm · yarn · babel · Prettier · ESLint
