Hi! I'm Esther ~
I'm a Software Engineer at Betterment.
Building meaningful software, cleaning up legacy code, and working across the stack make me happy.
I'm a full-stack Rails-based engineer.
I prefer delivering complete bottom-to-top slices of work, from the database design to the views. I like to be a part of desiging the big picture as well as working through implementation details. I like having time to consider how each layer should function to make one unified whole.
I love ...
→ working with product, design, and engineering leadership.
→ mentoring junior engineers and learning from my peers.
→ team environments which revolve around humor, positivity, & interpersonal support.
My favorite things center on leading projects from inception to completion, and digging into legacy code cleanup. Given license to dream, I begin to imagine what a cleaner codebase might look like, and become motivated to make that vision a reality.
