“We stayed in contact throughout the week. There was never a big unveil at the end of the job; we meticulously planned each part of the process to stay on the same page.

- Sarah, Moonlight contractor

“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.

“We needed to move from Aptible to AWS, but had no idea how to do it. We found a HIPAA-specialized contractor on Moonlight, which otherwise would have been expensive and taken 2 months of interviewing.

- Brian, founder at HDP Health

“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.

Data Engineering, Machine Learning, Web Applications, and DevOps

"I'm most comfortable in Data Engineering, Web development, Machine Learning, and DevOps in that order. That said, my background is pretty diverse so I rarely find myself shying away from new technology or challenging projects. I started building web applications in C# and .NET for a logistics company. As a side project, I made a mobile game called ZenShift in 2011 that was downloaded 150,000 times with a solid 5-star rating in over 40 countries. A few years later I started a business that used web crawling to download hundreds of millions of web pages, machine learning to detect human trafficking ads, from there law enforcement used an interface that I built using Node.JS, MongoDB, Elasticsearch, D3.js and Angular.js to setup sting operations. We got into Y Combinator and then sold to a DARPA contractor. Now I work at Eventbrite as the Principal Data engineer. I work on data pipelines, machine learning, API integrations and dev ops for large-scale projects."
