SOFTWARE ENGINEER (web/mobile)

I'm Arielle Baldwynn, a product manager and web developer. I enjoy solving problems through well-written software, beautiful UI and engaging UX.


My tools of choice include iOS, NodeJS, Trello, Django, AngularJS, Postgresql, Golang and more! Let's work together to build beautiful and lightning-quick projects.


HACKATHON EVANGELIST

I'm also a staunch community leader and hackathon organizer. I organize hackathons, hack at hackathons across North America, run a hacker club and help others learn and build their projects.

With my broad network of hackers and my goto attitude, I can help your company market to young student hackers and also find and attract the right kind of engineering talent.
