Hand crafted, self-taught web engineering, 10+ years in the making.

I am Andrew Martin, an excitable freelance full-stack web developer. I live with an intense passion for software engineering, particularly in the world of architecture, functional development, and enhancing developer productivity.

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.

Experience

Credit Karma Logo

Full-Stack Software Engineer

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.

Front-End Engineer

May 2017 to June 2019

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.

Founder & CTO

2010 to Present

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.

Projects

Halos Official WebsiteBelieve Labs, Bad Assembly

This website was a high profile website for the national brand Wonderful's "Halos" mandarin oranges. The site was built on top of a heavily customized WordPress CMS, using advanced SASS and client-side JavaScript to make the page come alive with parallax effects.
