CV

My name is Amber and I’m a frontend engineer living in Berlin. I have a keen interest in accessibility, performance, and security, and extensive experience in agile, version control, testing, CI/CD, and error handling. Additionally, 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, help developers increase their skills and find jobs at codebar, read, take photos, and take long walks outside!
