Hi, I'm Jacob.
Full Stack Software Engineer & Web Developer passionate about building UI's and enabling product teams through design & developer tools.
Minneapolis, USA | UTC -5hrs
I'm a Software Engineer, obsessed with building tools and infrastructure that enable front-end teams to be productive. Currently, I'm a Product Engineer at Stylitics where I contribute to product infrastructure that supports our front-end product suite.
Sometimes I write about the web, and the stuff we use to build it.
More rarely, I talk about it.
Check out some of my open source work here. You can reach me on twitter or shoot me an email. I'm currently not available for hire.

The Executive's Individual Contributor
As we move past the zero interest rate era in the tech industry, I think it's important to share perspectives on the future of tech work, especially for those that are just getting into this industry.
