Tyler Willingham - Resume

website | github | linkedin | twitter

I'm a software engineer because I love building things. I have experience across the entire stack. I'm 100% self-taught. I started my career working independently. I've been working full-time as a Software Developer/Engineer for 6 years and counting. I am experienced in working with and leading small teams. I have remote experience.

I care about developing responsible and maintainable software. My aim is to write code that looks boring and therefor approachable to beginners. "Code golf" isn't my sport. I rely on libraries that the community trusts to accelerate my productivity and keep my teams from maintaining software that's secondary or tertiary to our primary objective.
