Hi, I'm Joel. Nice to meet you.

tl;dr

I do good work. Let's work together.

My name is Joel Saupe, I'm a software engineer from Utah. I currently lead frontend development at a company called Deseret Book by day, and do contract work and consulting at Starry Night Studios by night.

Most of the code I write is JavaScript and React. I write some Ruby on Rails here and there as well.

The things I'm most passionate about and focus a lot of my efforts on include:

  • Accessibility
  • User Experience
  • Empowering Developers
  • Great Documentation

I try to contribute to open source when I can, I could probably do better, but I maintain a couple packages that I'm pretty proud of.

Sometimes I write about topics I'm interested in, or occasionally I give talks on things I'm passionate about. Here are some of the talks I've given:

I'm not always working though. I love spending time with my family and I'm pretty into running as well.

If you need someone to point you in the right direction, or maybe someone to jump on a project for a little while, I'm the right person for the job. Or maybe you're looking for someone to fill a full time position, then that's cool too, so email me already!
