Hey, I’m RJ,

a developer and technical leader who believes in the win-win: software that’s as much a joy to use as it is to build.

Because as users, developers, and maintainers, we’re all in this together. We’re people—not machines. People with customers to delight and deadlines to meet; people with families to care for and careers to grow. People passionate about securing their data. People looking to software to create value, not frustration.

People-first software. That’s what I do. From ETL pipelines to web interfaces and everything in between. Sometimes working in TypeScript and Go; sometimes in metrics, charters, and the language of empowered teams. Sometimes I write about it. Mostly, I just do it. With the team at Koan by day and all sorts of collaborators by night, I’m always seeking excuses to work on software that enables a more humane, sustainable world.

Up your alley? Let’s connect!
