CV

My name is Amber and I’m a frontend engineer living in Berlin.

I have a keen interest in accessibility and performance, and extensive experience in agile, version control, testing, CI/CD, and error handling.

I’ve worked on internal tools (TypeScript), onboarded engineers, run A/B tests, managed headless CMS requests, written middlewares for backend endpoints, overseen API creation, improved SEO, and more.

In my spare time I write on my tech blog, organise and coach at codebar, read, take photos, and take long walks outside!
