Hello, I’m Rulian. I’m a full stack web & mobile app developer. I have extensive experience in web development, specializing in Laravel / Vue & React. I also make iOS/Android apps in React Native.
I have particular experience in backend systems architecture. Working with various technologies to automate data parity between warehouse and search indexes, automating deployments and server orchestration / management.
I’m particularly useful working in small to mid size teams to plan, coordinate, implement and manage tasks in multi facet solutions that require integration between many moving parts.
For businesses, I offer a blend of skills across engineering, product and marketing departments. Having experience launching my own projects, I can relate to the pain points of coordinate marketing and product and translating the work into engineering.
