Dear Hiring Manager,
It is with genuine enthusiasm that I submit my application for the position of frontend software engineer at the Center for Translational Data Science. With close to four years of professional frontend experience, I know that my diverse skill set will make me an asset to the team.
In my time at Nventive, I worked on a variety of project types. I broke ground on new projects, setting up CI/CD, established early file structure, and determined coding standards. I worked on long-term projects with a focus on providing support and maintenance. I am comfortable wearing many different hats in a team and am confident that I will be a productive member at the Center for Translational Data Science no matter my role.
Lastly, every good frontend developer should have an understanding of the entire stack. When I encounter a bug in the backend, I do not hesitate to crack open my IDE and see what is going on. From fixing slow SQL queries to adding a needed endpoint, I consider everything to be in my wheelhouse.
I am excited for the opportunity to collaborate with the University of Chicago. I appreciate your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.
