Description

Hi, I’m Vince — I’m looking to join a team as a Backend Software Engineer. I used to work at a mobile-gaming startup in the Bay Area where I built services in Go. In more detail, I:

- Built microservices powered by real-time sports data (NBA and League of Legends)

- Developed libraries used across all services: client SDKs, an internal web framework, data store clients, validation tools

- Rolled out testing infrastructure for writing automated tests resulting in faster development cycles and ongoing test coverage

- Improved engineering standards by actively contributing to docs and reviews related to writing idiomatic Go code, web APIs, app architecture, testing, and error handling

Sadly, the startup wasn't able to secure a Series A round due to the recent pandemic and I was a part of the layoffs. Before working as a software engineer, I worked in finance and have a degree in Economics and a minor in Computer Science from UCSD.
