As a developer for this small software consultancy, I helped create and maintain over a dozen web applications serving a diverse array of clients. From state education departments, to European record labels, to inter-planetary space exploration companies, I delivered quality software to companies of all shapes and sizes.

During my time at BNB, I acquired skills in all levels of our tech stack. The average day for me included anything from:

  • Implementing a front end redesign
  • Writing tests to ensure a smooth upgrade of an old project
  • Transitioning an app to a new deployment infrastructure (😍Terraform😍)
  • Developing new and exciting tools for our clients!
