Hey, I’m Ben! I’m a Software Engineer living in San Francisco, California, though I originally hail from Virginia. I love working on scaling challenges and building consumer-facing products.

I'm currently a Software Engineer at DoorDash where I'm the technical lead for all non-restaurant projects, including those related to grocery, retail, and pharmacy delivery, using Python, Kotlin, PostgreSQL, React, and various AWS services.

I also recently founded and built (from scratch) ATGATT, a motorcycle safety app that helps users understand which helmets will save their lives in a crash scenario. ATGATT has a backend that is written in Golang, is deployed to AWS, and makes use of Vue.js + Bootstrap 4 on the frontend.

I previously worked as a Senior Software Engineer at Veyo and Qualcomm, where I specialized in backend development in C# and built several mission-critical systems from scratch. I've also done a bit of frontend (ES6, Angular 5), mobile (using Java and Objective-C), automation (Ruby, Python, Node.js), and even some embedded work (C, ASM) in the past.

My resume is available here. Feel free to reach out using LinkedIn or Email if you'd like to get in touch with me.
