About Jason Shultz
I'm passionate about digital rights, open source, and personal privacy.
I spent the past year and a half holding the dual role as a Senior Software Developer and Technical Product Manager for a software development firm building an ERP Software Platform.
I love to build things using AngularJS, React, GraphQL, and Ruby/Rails and making them look amazing.
I have extensive experience with the following technologies: AngularJS, Angular2+, Ruby on Rails, PHP (Laravel, YII and CodeIgniter), MySQL, Firebase, Swift, React, GraphQL, NodeJS and more.
I have published apps in the iOS App Store including apps titled 'Roomly' and 'Brickly' and 'Rooms Home Inventory'.

Senior Software Engineer
October 2018 - Feb 2020
I am responsible for prototyping and deploying a Ruby on Rails graphql api that communicates with an React Native warehouse application and a React Node storefront.
The rails application coordinates data with Ups for tracking labels and address verification. It also tokenizes payment methods for scheduled and stored payment methods. It handles checking account verification and check, credit card, and wire payments.
There is an extensive amount of automated processes that run in the background to handle non critical jobs as well as critical jobs that don’t involve immediate customer interaction.
The past six months I spent a lot of time working on three ReactJS projects that integrated with our Rails GraphQL server. Tasks included building new components for data reporting for the CEO, CFO, and Warehouse. Administrative tasks for updating clients, users, etc. Updates to the customer storefront. Setting up GraphQL subscriptions for real time data reporting, and much more.
