Hi, I’m James


My name is James Hart. I'm a software engineer who spent a bunch of time in San Francisco 🌁 learning and is now back home in Seattle 🌧 working remotely. I like to build products that provide quick value and feedback to the business. I've built and mentored many teams to do so!

I'm currently a Principal Engineer on the product team at Brightline. I switched over to the mobile team in 2022 to help support building their native iOS and android apps. Previously, I was the Principal engineer at Voom Flights for two years.

My native habitat is Rails, TypeScript, and a terminal shell, but I have experience with many other technologies – and I love learning. I've built on the entire stack, from fully accessible front-ends to automating deployment of new servers. I value testing, developer process, and automation. Personally, I like trying new restaurants, cooking, backpacking and moto-camping.
