Golang / Go Profile: Senior Software Developer

Senior Software Developer - Golang, PHP, Ruby Python, SQL

Located in: 🇺🇸 United States › New York › Brooklyn
Looking for: Freelance - Can work remotely

I've programmed since using Hypercard to true-up a seventh-grade project based loosely on Star Fox. After doing some web programming and domain administration in the Army, I used the GI Bill to help pay for undergrad and grad school for Computer Science which in undergrad entailed a lot of C and C++; in grad school it was more geared towards Java. During grad school, I founded a small consulting business centered around Drupal and PHP. Various iterations of this consultancy has been my bread-and-butter for the past seven years. I've worked with MVC frameworks like Rails and Laravel and, in order to totally grok the low-downs, I created my own framework in PHP so I could better appreciate what is going on under the hood rather than just doing a bit of plug-and-play with no understanding. For the past few years, I've been working on a challenge-based Health and Wellness promotion app (Felix) for a department within Health and Human Services. Felix pulls in quantifiable data from wearables and feeds that into the system to help encourage the user through use of Live and Virtual Trainers (bots) while empowering the federal government to help promote and maintain a healthier work force. Based on the size and complexity of this project, I've been researching and working to encourage the FOH director to write Felix 2.0 in Go so we can take advantage of its concurrency and speed.

I love tooling and working with back end systems. I don't mind schmoozing with clients, however, and can speak 1's and 0's along with other humans :)

What I look for
I would love to mainly code in Go but am open to contributing to projects using C/C++, BASH, Python, Perl, PHP, Ruby, etc.
I'm only seeking remote positions. I minored in German and can work with companies whose primary language is German but prefer English mostly.
