Hi, I’m James


My name is James Hart. I'm a software engineer originally from Seattle 🌧 who used to live and work in San Francisco 🌁 and is currently back in Seattle 🌤. I like to build web applications that are performant, scalable and well tested.

I'm now a Senior Engineer on the product team at Brightline. Previously, I was the Principal engineer atVoom Flights, an Airbus Company.

Even before that, I helped build and grow Wanelo and prior to that I was at RPX Corp. My native habitat is Rails, TypeScript and a terminal shell, but I have experience on a variety of other platforms. I've done a lot with front-end libraries and frameworks. I value testing, developer process, and automation. I also like dining out and cooking, scootering and running.
