Corey Bothwell
I am a current Master's student at the University of Zurich expecting to graduate in Summer 2022.

I study computer science and represent a strong technical hire for an ambitious startup or technology firm.

I am looking for mission-driven firms with strong visions and sense of strategy. I like to solve hard problems while having a deep impact on the end product.

I see myself as an excellent early hire and I would be a perfect fit for teams looking for an experienced contributor who is a strong communicator with high levels of empathy
✨ I have the following concrete qualifications:

  • 2.5 years experience in full-stack application development
  • Strong grasp of computer science fundamentals, 
  • Ability to architect a system from start to finish, including important technical decisions
  • Excellent grades in theoretical and applied computer science courses
  • Experience developing blockchain based applications on the Ethereum Virtual Machine 
  • Successful exit of a small 1-person startup
  • I speak professional level German

🧙‍ I have particular experience with following stacks/technologies:

  • Python/Django/Django Rest Framework
  • Java/Spring
  • React (Redux, CRA, Next.js, Gatsby)
  • Typescript
  • Front-end UI design for both web and mobile (and I love tailwindCSS!)
  • GraphQL
  • Database design, both SQL & NoSQL
  • Solidity and the Web3 ecosystem
  • AWS including Lambda functions, Dynamo DB, EC2, Fargate, and others
  • Microservice & serverless architectures, as well as their use cases
  • CI/CD Pipelines via CircleCI, Github Actions etc.
  • Functional programming paradigms
  • Golang
  • Elixir/Phoenix
  • Docker
  • Linux Administration
  • Ansible

 ✅ I could be a good fit if you need someone who:

  • Has a strong sense of ownership of the product and takes responsibility for its improvement and development
  • Ideates over architecture and takes an active role in shaping the direction of important technical decisions
  • Knows when to listen and learn from senior engineers and is not afraid to admit when they don't know something
  • Keeps business value creation at the center of the development process
  • Has strong empathy for both colleagues and users and seeks consensus and a shared vision across all stakeholders
