Mar 2020 - Aug 2021
As the tech lead for the Patient Growth team, I really wore many hats and helped with many things (ask me!) but my main areas of focus were defining the technical vision, reducing tech debt (AngularJS -> React), mentoring, and working with the product, marketing, and customer enablement teams to prioritize features. I also improved processes and empowered the team in order to increase test coverage and reduce bugs. Additionally I built Opencare's first design library with the design team, and built a custom analytics package to simplify integrating analytics across the multiple apps (Snowplow, Fullstory, Heap, Optimizely). Tech stack was predominantly React, Typescript, Jest/React Testing Library, and styled-components, using a rest API built in Node.

With a desire to create unique work, Blunt was created. Like most (all) startup companies, I wore many hats on a very small team! To name the keys ones, I was the developer, project manager, and point of contact for clients. One highlight of what I was responsible for was learning how to research the best architectural solutions for projects. I handed Blunt fully over to my partner a little under a year after starting it so I could focus more fully on my full-time role.

Resume Writing Tips
The following tips are based on what we've learned from helping over 100,000 job seekers create a resume with our resume builder.
Resume Format and Sections
Impressing recruiters and hiring managers will be much easier if you include the info they are looking for, in the correct order. You also don't want your resume to be too long. You are likely one of many resumes and want to respect the reader's time.
- Contact info: This should be at the top of your resume and easy to find. Make sure to include your email and phone number.
- Work experience section: This is the most important part of your resume. Focus on your work experience that is most relevant to the job description you're applying for. Use short bullet points. They're easier to read quickly than paragraphs.
- Education section: Make sure to list any degrees or certificates that the job posting requests. Only include your GPA and courses if you recently graduated.
- Other sections: You can also include skills, languages, patents, projects, etc if they are relevant to the job you're applying for. It's generally best to avoid references. Recruiters will ask for them later and they take up valuable space.
How to Pick a Resume Template
While the contents of your resume are undoubtedly the most important part, a good resume template can increase your odds of getting an interview. Most requiters only spend a few seconds on their initial resume scan, you need to make them count.
If the job application requires a cover letter, you should style it similar to your resume template.
Front End Developer Skills
Skills are an important part of a front end developers resume. You should analyze the job description you're applying for and make sure to include the requested skills in your work experience and skills sections. Don't include soft skills like "problem solver" on your resume. Most recruiters just ignore them.
Here are some skills that are frequently included in front end developer job descriptions on our remote job board.
