Hi! 👋 I'm a full stack developer who's passionate about building usable, accessible, and fast apps with web technologies. I'm looking for a job where I can make an impact on the project, learn new things, and be part of a great team.
Building large scale React apps using functional components and Typescript, using Next.js as a base. Working to make fully designed, accessible, translatable, and mobile friendly frontend experiences for clients using modern CSS, Tailwind, custom components and headless UX libraries. Creating custom hooks and components for reuse throughout apps, and using tools such as MobX/MST, React Query and React Hook Form for state and data management.
Using Laravel (PHP), Nestjs (Node), and FastAPI (Python) frameworks to build backends and REST APIs. Using ORMs to build fast and efficient database (MariaDB/MySQL) queries. Building a Markdown based log system to help developers, testers, and product managers understand and debug the complex business logic on a project.
Building React Native apps, deploying (via Fastlane and Firebase), and maintaining them on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Building a realtime chat system using websockets combined with native notifications.
Developing and maintaining large scale PHP (Laravel) applications. Using NodeJS, RabbitMQ, and Socket.io to provide live content updates and sync data. Planning and deploying server orchestration (SaltStack), scale testing (Load Impact), monitoring (DataDog), continuous integration (Codeship) systems across multiple environments. Supporting a large network of application edge nodes distributed in the field.
