I'm a professional PHP software engineer in the Seattle area, focusing on creating custom SaaS software, often by use of MVC architecture. I'm a fan of quality work, best practices, thorough QA, and thoughtful design. I have excellent written and verbal communication, and would ultimately like to work as a technical project manager. I've spent a year and a half as a project lead in a software QA department and found the work particularly rewarding.
In my three years as a professional programmer I have taken over and finished a CMS with the CakePHP framework, build two textbook buyback systems with RESTful APIs, created a project manager with hour tracking specific to my company's needs, integrated various API systems into client websites, including but not limited to the Amazon API, Paypal, UPS, and USPS. I primarily work in PHP and MySQL, but I also have another three years experience in quality control, half of which was spent as a project lead. I have worked with front-end code, including regular use of HTML5, CSS and CSS3, responsive design, the jquery library. I've also taken over technical and copywriting, when needed for my smaller companies.
