Hello! I’m Jake (they/them)
I'm a Frontend Developer with a passion for creating smooth user experiences and meaningful products.
I like making things that don’t make you think! Automation and reusability excite me when presented with a task as much as clean, DRY code.
I have previously worked on headless e-commerce, in-house tools, and various sites & apps in agencies and freelancing, both in Canada, and now in Berlin. Over the course of my career, I have come to embrace and even relish ownership of a product and its underlying systems.
I am currently at a point where I would prefer to be part of a team, instead of engineering solo, as I find the work and results more fulfilling.
I'm also passionate about music and creative coding. I like to make some audio-visual clips and attend various meet-ups for the associated platforms and communities. Check out more generative things on IG!
I am currently learning to longboard on Templehofer Feld, in the summer and love to go snowboarding in winter too.
My Tech Stack would include: React, Next JS, Three JS, A CSS Solution, such as Tailwind or Styled Components, and a content-focused DB with an abstraction layer (Sanity.io/Contentful/Prismic).
I would be working alongside engineers of various skills, in a diverse environment. My dailies would involve an opportunity to be creative and autonomous and foster a strong sense of community with my team. The hierarchical structure would primarily be horizontal.
The department I work in is regularly involved with others, with good communication levels. Flexible hours are also essential, I do not want to work in a company where I have to clock in and out at fixed times.
I would love to bring my front-end engineering skills together with content modelling and my love of 3D motion design, to create rich, immersive and meaningful experiences for the end user.
