“Assure F. Porcupine” Has 3 years experience and is looking for a new role as a Software Engineer in New York, NY or Remote.

I am a back-end engineer who cares for purpose-driven projects.

After a multifaceted career in broadcast and online news, I transitioned to work in technology, primarily focusing on web application development using Ruby on Rails and traditional web stacks. Lately, I am diving deeper into non-relational databases, Python, and various JavaScript libraries and frameworks. I've worked on side-projects, small scripts to automate tasks, and large-scale applications with tens of thousands of existing users.

I have robust teaching experience with students of all ages and programming proficiencies but am now looking to transition to a fully-technical role with a small-to-mid-sized team.

Ideal Company

I would love to be part of an established but small team that has defined, dedicated leadership and support for junior members. It is important to me that my company shows a clear commitment and investment in its community and in making tech careers more accessible to underrepresented folks.
