Software Engineer

Intro

Relentlessly focused on the user

I'm Josh Stroud, a full stack software engineer with over a year's experience that can help you build a delightful user experience using Ruby on Rails, Javascript, and React.

I've worked at several consumer electronics startups and a design firm developing embedded software engineering in C and Python. I've also worked in product design, where I developed products as part of interdisciplinary teams. My training as a mechanical engineer at UC Berkeley gives me a rigorous and analytical approach that helps me produce high-quality, performant code.

I recently graduated from the #1 coding bootcamp in San Francisco, App Academy, where I sharpened my skills in full-stack web development.
