Hi, I'm Andrew.
I'm a full-stack software engineer in Los Angeles.
For as long as I can remember, I've been obsessed with learning about the latest and greatest; no language is too different, pattern too difficult, or process too challenging.
Lately? I've been building GraphQL API's using TypeScript, developing infrastructure tooling, and architecting elegant Client-side solutions at Credit Karma.
Some of my must haves: test driven development, scalability, thoughtful and meaningful code review, and setting up build pipelines for success.
I am currently a Software Engineer at Credit Karma, developing a GraphQL API seen by over 100 million members. In my time here I have led and released several large initiatives, which I discuss in more detail in my blog.
At Lyft, we used a React.js and Redux stack to build out several of the high traffic Lyft.com web properties, including the homepage, Developer Portal, and other informational pages.
The website was powered using the Contentful API, and built using Node.JS, and React.js and Redux.
I am the single front-end architect for Spotfund, helping design, build, and deploy their web application using React.js and Redux, served up by Node.js.
I also built their Deploy regimes, advised on build strategies, and assisted in the project management.
I have run my own web design and development consulting agency, formerly under the name Believe Labs, for the better part of the last decade.
My work there included everything from securing contracts, aligning on client objectives and visions, and building production ready (as well as greenfield, minimum viable product) web applications and websites.
As in recent years I have moved into a more full-stack role, most of the work from this period is showcased on this website in the "legacy" category.
I'd strongly recommend Andrew if you're looking for a top notch freelance web developer. If the opportunity arose I'd hire him again.
If you have the opportunity to work with Andrew, first, consider yourself fortunate, then… take it.
Besides his technical skill and business acumen, he remains a good friend and a reliable associate. I highly recommend Andrew Martin.
I would highly recommend using Andrew’s services–I am very happy!
I can’t imagine working with anyone other than Andrew and his team–they are the best, and they are now stuck with us, forever!
Andrew understands how to communicate and deliver in a timely manner and work with clients to produce eye-popping results.
I plan to work with Andrew as much as I can for web projects. He's a reliable, "go to" guy!
If you're looking for a strong communicator to take the long view on a project, this is your man.
Andrew's most valuable traits are his responsiveness, clarity, and quality of work.
Andrew is an absolute delight to work with.
Andrew, among other things is a Web Development Wunderkind.
I’ve had Andrew train other team members because of his level of skill and ability to communicate clearly.
Andrew was able to craft a website that is beyond our expectations.
Andrew is great at explaining complex ideas and working together to find solutions to tricky problems.
Andrew's work is superb and we look forward to continuing to use him for future projects.
Andrew is a talented developer with a strong technical background and the ability to quickly identify the right solution to a tough challenge.
Andrew is easily one of the most talented web developers I have ever met.
The whole team loved working with him — I've gladly enlisted his help for multiple major projects, and wouldn't hesitate to do the same in the future.
Andrew always has a great attitude and a great work ethic. Easy to coach and eager to learn, but also very smart and capable.
I am currently accepting inquiries for new projects, particularly those architecting and building sophisticated web applications using modern tooling and frameworks (think
Ruby on Rails).
