Dan Schuman

I am a full-stack engineer based in Portland, Oregon. I have many years of experience creating and delivering quality software on professional teams. When programming, I focus on code clarity and simplicity. When working with others, I shoot for a no-ego mindset.

I have expertise in frontend development architecture, and have developed effective patterns with React and associated libraries. I also have substantial backend and native software experience as will, including: Node, Golang, Java, React Native, Objective-C, C++, Ruby, and PHP. Across my career, I have worked in numerous cloud and on-premises environments, along with bundled software.
