Sarah Katz

NYC-Based Full Stack JS Developer

Hi, I'm Sarah.

After graduating in late 2017 from the inaugural Web Development Fellowship at Fullstack Academy of Code (a partnership with NYC's Tech Talent Pipeline), I spent a year working as a Fullstack UI Developer, working primarily on a UI automation testing project (while also jumping in on a few other small projects here and there). During this time, I gained experience with agile and scrum procedures, as well as experience working with a product team and collaborating on large shared repositories on GitHub. I am currently working as a full stack engineer at a healthtech company, using my coding skills and my passion for helping others to constantly improve our product.

My current technology stack includes HTML, CSS, Javascript, React, Redux, Node.js, Express, PostgreSQL, Gatsby, and some GraphQL knowledge. Additionally, I have experience with testing frameworks including Jest and Jasmine, as well as UI testing with Selenium Webdriver. Other tools with which I am experienced include GitHub, Slack, and JIRA.

Prior to studying web development, I worked as a freelance graphic designer (primarily print-based) and an assistant office manager. My bachelors degree is in biology (Yeshiva University), and I have an additional bachelors in health sciences (SUNY Downstate), as well as a certificate in computer essentials for graphic design (Fashion Institute of Technology).

When I'm not coding, you can find me reading Harry Potter (or occasionally a different book), running the streets of Manhattan, getting my barre3 on, taking in a baseball game, watching sports on TV, and visiting Disney theme parks.
