“Moonlight is going to be written into our success story for sure. It’s helped us speed up areas of our platform in a crucial time without putting us off our roadmap in other places.

- Blake, Product Lead at Engine

“We found an incredibly talented developer who was a technical and cultural fit for our team. For our next hire, I would immediately start with Moonlight before wasting time and thousands of dollars on the other job boards.

- Taylor, founder of Sched

“We worked with the primary author of Staffjoy to get a scheduling integration running. The whole system was set up on Google Cloud in about a day.

- Lee, founder at Gingr

Full Stack Developer

"I started out as an electrical engineer developing circuit boards and safety-critical embedded software for aircraft cameras, which gave me a good foundation in writing well-tested, robust code. I helped take that product through emissions testing for FAA certification into small-run production. Since then, I've spent the last four years working remotely as both a contractor and part time employee for small startups. I've built public-facing web apps and APIs in vanilla JavaScript and with React, Redux, KnockoutJS, and NodeJS, as well as in Python (Flask) and plain HTML/CSS. I'm framework-agnostic; sometimes, the best solution for a small business owner is WordPress. I've also written internal tools for automation and QA. I'm a systems thinker and I get a kick out of troubleshooting and debugging. I have a Master's in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Portland State (2013) and a Bachelor's in Engineering Technology from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia (2009)."

Senior Software Engineer at Itron

"I specialize in backend development for high availability and low-latency HTTP services. My most recent networking application experience has been designing HTTP APIs using Elixir and Ruby and customizations to Ejabberd for IoT applications. I write unit and integration tests and believe in feedback from code reviews done through pull requests. I use continuous integration practices for red-to-green testing that leads to generally available releases and eventual deployment. I support development operations by ensuring that deployment runs fast through simple shell commands and build processes that are encapsulated in docker environments when appropriate and am capable of debugging running applications in production when needed.
