Hi everyone! I’m Zelda (they/them) and I work as a software engineer. I graduated with a B.A. in computer science, but spent most of my time in college taking classes focusing on 1) women and gender sexuality studies, and 2) ethnicity, race, & migration. I’ll share some of my skills below:
Data manager: As part of my thesis work, I spent a lot of time searching for datasets relevant to my project. I’d like to further develop my skills creating, managing, and navigating databases, especially with regards to integrating and/or creating APIs (Application Programming Interfaces).
Project manager: I tend to think thoroughly about the big picture. I am great at breaking down a large project into smaller, more manageable tasks that are delegated across a group of people. Deadlines tend to be difficult for me to realistically set, but it is a skill I hope to develop if given the opportunity to do so.
UX/Designer: I have a basic understanding of design concepts, which has proven useful in my experiences as a web developer. I have some experience with designing social media posts using Canva. I would love to shadow any designers interested in sharing their skills!
