Ask HN: Who wants to be hired? (April 2019)

Ebay Products

I am a passionate polyglot software engineer, trainer, and architect.

I specialize in back-end system architecture. My strengths are in following Domain-Driven Design principles while working on Microservices.

As you will see from my resume, I am experienced in technologies like Java 8/9, C++ 11/14, Spring Boot, AWS, Docker, Apache Kafka, Couchbase, etc.

Although my day to day job involves working on private, enterprise GitHub repositories, I do try to make Open Source contributions in my spare time. Here’s the contributions I have managed so far through my GitHub account: rockoder

When not busy coding, I am writing articles about coding at Baeldung or on my personal blog.

I am currently located in Bangalore, India and hence would like to be considered for the remote opportunity. I am also open to relocation if visa assistance is possible.

I do custom electronics, robotics, and embedded software development – I specialize in quickly turning ideas into prototypes. I’ve built custom automation equipment for chemistry labs, sensors that are in use in household/utility applications, control circuitry for construction equipment, 3d printing electronics, data acquisition equipment. No project too small. Few projects too large. Deep discounts for open source hardware work.

I would also be happy to come over (anywhere in Europe) and teach any of the above skills to a small group of interested people. I’ve taught courses in electronic assembly (SMD), 3d printing (building/using printers, iterative 3d model design using programming) and robot design and construction. I’ve taught courses at several universities, hackspaces, company events and conferences.

Hi! I’m at Facebook now, and planning on moving to Boston in the summer. At Facebook, I’ve worked on high profile projects related to elections, propaganda, and democracy — basically the stuff you see in the news. I’d next like to do something more collaborative and in a leadership role.

What I do: I’m either a tech-savvy PM or a people-savvy software/data engineer.

My background: Prior to Facebook, I worked at Wikimedia, Grovo, two now-folded startups I co-founded, and a variety of nonprofits and political campaigns.

My dream job: Leading a cross-functional team of designers, engineers, data folks, researchers, etc to build a everyday consumer product that subtly includes affordances for pro-social, pro-civic behavior by users.

More about me

I am a frontend developer for two years now after a late career change at 37 years old. I quit my last job in digital marketing to study software development full-time. After eight months studying, on my own, through free, online resources only, I got a job at a fintech startup.

Here is my blog with more details about my decision to become a software developer and how I learned to code:

I am from Brazil, by the way. Currently, I live in São Paulo, but I am moving to Los Angeles in May, following my wife that was accepted at a Masters program in USC – I will apply to the J2 visa, allowing me to have a work permit.

I receive consistently positive feedback about my communication skills, which I believe I can maintain in English, even it being my second language.

Here is a newsletter I started with written communication tips in English that can serve as evidence of this statement:

I also have a side-project that can serve as evidence that I can get things done on limited time, as well as demonstrate my UX/UI and product skills. It is a SaaS web app for 1:1 meeting management, built in Rails API + Ember.
