After three years of running engineering at Attachments.me, and a brief stint at Yesware post acquisition, I came to the realization that I needed to switch things up.
I’m passionate about open-source software. In a few short years, I’ve watched community-centric tools like GitHub, npm, RubyGems, and PyPI transform the software-development industry: the industry has become increasingly community-oriented, more libraries are being open-sourced, and complex software is being built faster. This has helped both grow the economy and made incredible non-profit initiatives like Code for America a possibility.
I am excited to announce that I’m joining npm, Inc., as one of the first engineering hires. This allows me to combine my love for open-source software with my love for Node.js.
Node.js was the first development community I ever got involved with:
- It helped me learn about open-source development practices: In turn, making me a stronger more confident developer.
- It taught me, through npm, the power of package-managment systems: When learning a new language now, one of the first things I do is to investigate what package managers are available.
- It motivated me to release my first open-source projects.
I’m proud to join such a talented team, and am excited to see what we build together.
