Junior Software Engineer

Summary

My experience as a software engineer and my desire to work for the empowerment and benefit of others makes me a great fit for your open opportunity. I highly value the ability to work in a team environment that focuses on designing and building for a positive user experience, and my previous roles in the communications industry exemplify my capabilities in this setting. I myself am an eager and opportunistic learner, and translating this passion into crafting features and finding solutions to help others aligns well with my personal values. I would look forward to bringing a positive demeanor and professionalism to a new opportunity.
I developed many applicable software engineering skills in my time at General Assembly, building a strong foundation in JavaScript, React, HTML and CSS to create full-stack web applications. My latest project allowed me to demonstrate the full array of my skillset to incorporate a Ruby on Rails project with a React front-end to create a beautiful restaurant menu and ordering service. In my projects, I have worked with RESTful APIs and other back-end technologies as well, such as Express.js, and I greatly enjoyed taking on the responsibility to grow as a developer with continued learning and coding exercises.
Before becoming a developer, I built a professional foundation working in fast-paced, team-oriented environments at three different university communication offices. I learned how to juggle competing priorities, communicate effectively to co-workers and an outside audience, manage a team towards reaching a common goal, and think creatively to best reach a target audience with strategic ideas and content. Working with 19 different athletic teams while maintaining the athletic website and social media accounts was a fulfilling experience that helped me grow tremendously as a professional, and I hope to bring the same energy and enthusiasm to this new opportunity.

Expectations

I'm mostly looking for an opportunity to enter into a stable company that is willing to allow for career growth, opportunities for advancement, and collaborative work environments. I'm someone who is up for any challenge, and I would also feel empowered working for a company that provides a direct benefit to other people. Being able to craft and work on behalf of others would fulfill many of the personal values I hold.
