Thompson

full stack developer

 

Hi, I'm Hannah!

I am a full stack developer with skills in html, css, ruby on rails, python and go. I'm also a really good learner and can pick up things very quickly. If you don't work in these languages I'd still love to see if we can work together.

I am community minded and love attending and speaking at meetups and conferences. Since moving to Sydney last year I've been really supported by the Sydney Women in Tech community, and am always looking for opportunities to give back.

In my previous career I was a scientist, I have a PhD in potato diseases of all things. While I still love science, it turns out I'm born to be a developer and now I spend my days writing code rather than wearing a labcoat (though I still own the coat).

When I'm not coding I can be found recording my podcast, eating brunch, drinking coffee and walking around Sydney's inner west looking for dogs to pat.

I'm a strong communicator, I love helping people and I thrive in a busy environment. If you think I'd be a good fit for your team don't hesistate to get in touch.
