Golang / Go Profile: Software Engineer

Software Engineer - Golang, SQL, REST, Linux

Located in: 🇺🇸 United States › Texas › Austin
Looking for: Permanent - Can work remotely

I started programming in 2010, but I found myself in a remote, rural region in 2011, forcing me to start business operations on my own. I had to find clients, maintain contracts, manage finances, and so on, all on top of programming. I deliberately chose to use Go when it reached version 1.0 because I could be extremely productive from the start and it required little investment. I learned from the entire experience to be an independent, productive, and prudent programmer while being keenly aware of the entire business ecosystem around software. Since then, I have never let my passion for programming or my integrity to my employers, partners, and clients diminish.

While I try to avoid extreme levels of specialization, I cannot overstate how much I enjoy working with programming stacks containing Go, Linux (typically RHEL or Debian based), MySQL (but more commonly MariaDB, a MySQL fork), and HTML/CSS/JS. With regard to front-end technologies, I use AngularJS for a number of years, and jQuery before that. I am comfortable with HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript, but I have let my skills with Angular and advanced JavaScript lapse in recent years.

Other technologies that I love include Python, SDL, and Make.

What I look for
I am looking for employment primarily coding with Golang.
I'd like to stay in Austin, TX for now, but I'd consider moving for the right position. I've successfully done remote work in the past, and I'd certainly entertain remote offers.
