Principal Front-End Engineer at Vantage

I’ve begun a position as a Principal Front-End Engineer at Vantage International. As a Principal Front-End Engineer at Vantage International, I provide my vantage point to our clients about how to improve the experiences they provide users and drive business growth by raising the skills, quality, and effectiveness of their engineering organizations.

I’ve been striving towards the mythic Principal Front-End Engineer role for years. I’m thrilled to be living and breathing the role at a place where we can share our cumulative decades of technology and business leadership experience with clients.

Being a principal engineer means looking ahead and planning for what’s coming. You architect and build systems and processes that scale with your customers and business growth, and adapt to changing needs. You have a picture in your head of what needs to happen now, what needs to happen next, and work with stakeholders to make it happen.

Between my work with Vantage clients and Price Tempter, I’m living remote life to the fullest and getting a double dose of startup life, too.

TheoTech podcast interview: Growing through Building Tech for Scripture Memory

I’m on a podcast (again)! Listen to Chris Lim’s interview with me about Growing through Building Tech for Scripture Memory on the TheoTech podcast. Chris interviews me about being a senior frontend engineer and creator of a scripture memory website and app called Verses for Life. Hear how I grew as a software developer through work and side projects like Verses for Life. We also chat about how side projects can level up your coding skills, the Bible licensing hurdles when it comes to building Christian apps, entrepreneurship challenges, and goals in the new year.

Growing through Building Tech for Scripture Memory

Start small and keep going

Make small changes and improvements.  If you make small, incremental changes over and over and over again, it will add up to a bigger impact.

Mentor one person.

Write code for one small program, one small website, one small app.

Contribute to one open source repository.

Read one book.

Over time, you’ll learn a lot and you’ll grow your impact on others.
