My name is Amanda McNeil and I’m looking for a fully remote position where I can continue to learn and grow as a programmer. I know that I have a lot to learn, as I’m mostly self-taught and the breadth of my tech knowledge/skill is greater than my depth in most areas, but I will be an asset to any team as I am a positive, considerate person who learns quickly and enjoys creating things.
I’m a former high school teacher (M.Ed) who decided to leave the teaching field a few years ago to become a programmer. I started with a position as an IT coordinator where I checked reports/backups, helped manage workflow through Slack, and assisted clients with software and hardware issues. Soon I was coding solutions for issues on the site and assisting with site changes. I was promoted to a junior programming position and then followed the tech team when they formed their own company.
Working fully remote on primarily front-end projects, I used a combination of React, Ember, JS, some Rails, and of course HTML/CSS and Bootstrap. I was responsible for most of the responsiveness in the sites we built and I was charged early on with building our company’s website. Because of my background in education, I was also tasked with creating educational documents for clients as well as working with some of them to learn how to use our products. And, due to my artistic talent, I also assisted with some design and graphics work.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and please contact me if you feel that I’d be a good fit for your team.
