About me

Hi! My name is Raymond. I’m a mission-driven software engineer interested in using technology to solve problems and improve the lives of others. I take a human-centered and pragmatic approach to software development and I believe in iteration and feedback over perfection. I most enjoy working on the front end, though I have worked across the stack and can put on other hats if necessary.

Technologies I have experience with (or, a bunch of buzzwords):

  • JavaScript, HTML, CSS
  • React, Redux, TypeScript, Flow
  • Jest, React Testing Library, Enzyme
  • Ruby on Rails, RSpec
  • Figma, Sketch

Currently I’m a full-stack engineer on the Benefits team at Gusto. I work on delightful features to make healthcare more accessible to small businesses and their employees.

Prior to Gusto, I studied Computer Science and Human-Computer Interaction at Stanford. Originally from New York, I first came to California for school and decided that sun is better than snow so I stuck around after graduation. I currently reside in San Francisco and in my free time, I enjoy yoga, hiking, reading, edm, and travel. I’m always down to chat about JavaScript ( 🤓), the works of Haruki Murakami, dairy-free alternatives, and the best group fitness classes in SF (spoiler alert: it’s Barry’s Bootcamp).

Thanks for reading! Here’s a picture of me petting an incredibly soft llama:
