Senior Software Engineer @ Sparrow
5+ years of experience, 1+ career coaching. I do not come from a traditional background in computer science, and worked my way into the tech industry through self-teaching, determination, odd-jobs, and a lot of networking. I understand what it's like to apply to countless jobs, be constantly rejected (or ghosted), all while continuously studying algorithms and watching your bank account drain as you work low-paying (or in my case, no-pay) jobs. My career path has never been "easy". I worked hard to get something on my resume, was lucky enough to be accepted into the Recurse Center, all while constantly interviewing to land my first job at Oracle.
Since then I have worked with a team of highly skilled data scientists, a data pipeline team handling terabytes of data per day, backend API, and now am spanning the whole range at a small startup. I learned what makes a healthy work environment, and what creates a toxic or hostile one. I have made strategic moves which in turn has attracted companies to constantly reach out to me. I understand that everyone gets into engineering in a different way, and I want to help you on that path. Whether you don't know the first thing about "coding", or are early in your career and are not sure how to deal with things that you don't know are normal or not. I am a resource for you to get anything you need from. Read More
