Work with Me

Published at July 1, 2022

πŸ‘‹ Hello there, I’m Evan! Nice to meet you.

I’m an engineer, manager, YC founder, runner, and a newly minted dad.

I’m looking to work with a growing startup tackling whatever engineering problem you have. I’ve worked with a bunch of different tech stacks and have many different open source projects as well.

I’ve been working with my 2x co-founder, Tim Jones. We’re pretty much like peanut butter and jelly. We go well together. We can build new products from scratch or help improve existing features.

Want to work with us? Say hi at [email protected]

Cribspot (YC W15)

πŸŽ‰ Co-Founder (2012 - 2018)

πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» CTO (2012 - 2018)

Cribspot was an apartment rental marketplace that we started right out of college. We built a lot of different things and tested a lot of products. You can read more about it in the about section.

Apartment List

πŸ“± Engineering Manager (2018-2022)

πŸ’Ό Co-Head of Engineering (2018)

Apartment List is a leading apartment rental marketplace in the US. For most of my time, I led the growth/SEO team but over my four years, I managed a lot of different engineering teams.

Tech Specs

Ruby on Rails πŸš‹

Extensive work with rails as an API (at Cribspot), as many microservices (at Apartment List), and as a full-stack web app (at Hailey).

Ember.js πŸ”₯

Built many different ember applications for different use cases at Cribspot. We had different applications for renters, owners, and managers all talking to a single rails API.

React and React Native βš›οΈ

Cribspot had multiple native applications for both iOS and Android that were written in React Native.

Led the migration to React from Backbone at Apartment List. Split the web application into two different Next.JS apps (one for logged-in and one for logged-out).

Elixir and Phoenix Framework πŸ’§

Personal projects have been using elixir (like this website), along with my running application OpenPace.
