Software Development Leader/Architect and Lead Developer

I bring a wealth of expertise in crafting software solutions for both web and mobile platforms, while also spearheading the implementation of streamlined software development practices that enhance efficiency for small teams and elevate the overall 'developer' experience. In my role as a freelance software engineer, I specialize in creating impactful and impeccably designed solutions that empower companies to focus on their core strengths. My dedication to developing thoughtful and user-friendly software ensures that businesses can thrive while relishing in a seamless digital experience. With a versatile background, I've partnered with a wide array of companies, ranging from quaint local enterprises to cutting-edge technology startups. I've even assumed leadership positions in expansive corporations with 50,000 employees, spanning the dynamic realms of telecommunications and print media. My repertoire includes an array of accomplishments, from architecting and constructing captivating marketing sites using JAMStack, to crafting bespoke CMS-driven websites and applications. I'm adept at designing APIs for seamless integration into other applications, spearheading e-commerce solutions, and engineering tailor-made applications using diverse programming languages and frameworks. My overarching goal is to maximize value for every business I collaborate with. Beyond my prowess as a developer, I take immense satisfaction in guiding companies and teams toward refined communication between product and engineering departments. By strategically prioritizing and tracking features and tasks, and implementing efficient infrastructure management, I foster an environment of unparalleled productivity. My leadership extends to managing infrastructure teams, adeptly navigating a spectrum that spans individually curated servers to harnessing the power of IaaS services and systems like Elastic Beanstalk, Laravel Forge, and OpsWorks. My versatility shines as I facilitate teams' transitions to cutting-edge practices such as infrastructure-as-code, utilizing tools like Terraform, and embracing technologies like ECS and Kubernetes. I also excel in designing Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery pipelines, all with the objective of empowering teams to achieve more with less resources.
