Alright, you're here. My information's right there. But you haven't contacted me yet. What're you waiting for?
Alright, I get it. There's a lot of engineers and you need me to prove that I can sling some code. I hate to be that guy. I don't like giving the hard sell. It's not my style, I'm typically more laid back. But here's a few things that I'm proud of.
You ever heard of the site Amazon.com? Don't lie. I know you have. And if so, you've certainly been using my code. I helped build the navigation bar at the top of every page. And when I was on that team in 2016, the A/B tests we ran resulted an increase in revenue of more than $600M per year. Not bad, am I right?
And you know that talking cylinder that you keep in your house? Yeah, she goes by Alexa usually. Ever asked her for the news? That's running my code too. I taught Alexa many talents. I taught her to recognize the names of your favorite news channels (For example, “Alexa, play news from CNN” instead of the generic “Alexa, play news”). I taught her to play videos. I even taught her to play the news in India, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and Canada.
And if you're a front-end engineer, you might've heard of the Lodash utility library. The one that has more than 28 million weekly downloads. Yeah, that one. They trusted me to bring their newdocumentation website to life using React, Jekyll and Github Pages.
They're still sporting my little signature at the bottom to this day. ❤ you too Lodash.
Those are some big names that put a lot of trust in me. Don't ya think?
But if I'm honest, I'm most proud of this one because of how much it impacted a cherished local business. I designed and built a new website for a local Seattle CrossFit gym. And here's what the owner had to say about the work [source]:
Before we launched ... we were receiving about 10 new members a month at most. And 2 months after we launched our new site, our numbers had more than doubled. That math is undeniable.
So no matter what kind of project you have in mind, go ahead and reach out.
