Hi! My name is Raymond and I’m a Front End and Design Systems Engineer based in San Francisco. I’m passionate about building beautiful and intuitive products that solve real problems. Additionally, I enjoy creating reusable and accessible design system components and implementing initiatives that improve developer productivity and experience. I value pragmatism, collaboration, and ownership, and I have experience leading projects, mentoring other engineers, and collaborating with cross-functional stakeholders.
Technologies I have experience with:
- React, Redux, GraphQL
- Vite, Webpack
- ESLint, Prettier
- Storybook, Figma
- Jest, React Testing Library, Enzyme
Most recently, I worked at Gem 💎 as the first front-end focused hire. I led the development of their design system and owned initiatives related to front-end tooling and developer experience. On the design system side, I built components such as tables, menus, and form inputs. I also maintained documentation, coordinated migrations, established contribution guidelines, and ensured accessibility standards. On the tooling side, notable projects included migrating our build system from Webpack 4 to Vite, conducting a large-scale ESLint rule rollout, and writing codemods to migrate off deprecated patterns. In general, I was my own product manager and gathered both qualitative and quantitative data to prioritize projects and build our roadmap.
Thanks for reading! Here’s a picture of me petting an incredibly soft llama:
