I’m a full-stack engineer at PagerDuty, and I work on one team in a fairly large engineering department. One of the things I love most about my job is that I get to work on back end services to make sure all the wiring and plumbing is doing its job, but also I get to do some front-end development so I can see my code in action. Working at PagerDuty is my first experience with DevOps, so in addition to learning a lot about the systems that back up my code, I’ve also learned to really appreciate the work my colleagues do and the services they are responsible for. Before discovering how much I love programming, I was a graduate student, a bread baker, and a graphic designer. When I'm not lost in the endless tubes of internet, I'm playing roller derby, cross-stitching, or watching Star Trek with my cats.
