About Kylie Stewart

Background

👋 Hello! My name is Kylie Stewart, and I am a Colorado-based Software Engineer.

I write a lot of JavaScript, but my primary interest is in designing and developing secure, clean, and scalable microservices.

Prior to developing, I worked in customer service, volunteer organization, electric vehicle sales, and briefly studied Forensic Chemistry. It was while dabbling in RaspberryPi tutorials and scripted twitter bots on the side of those full-time pursuits that I realized my love for the challenge of constant problem solving and creating solutions that programming provides. I began pursuing that love professionally in the summer of 2017 by enrolling in a web development bootcamp.

I now have 2+ years experience developing enterprise-ready applications for a number of household names while working as a React-focused Software Engineer at Formidable Labs, a Seattle-based JavaScript consultancy.

While at Formidable, in addition to a full-time workload, I have maintained and contributed to a number of open-sourced projects, including our d3-based JavaScript visualization library, victory, and our React-based presentation library, spectacle.

For the condensed, printable version of my CV, please see my complete resume.

Extracurriculars

🏔️ Outside of work, I like to hike around the many high-altitude peaks in my state.

The following are some of my favorite images from a few of our recent trips:
My climbing partners, seen on this vast and fairly intimidating Class 3 ridge up to Torreys Peak, another 14,000+ foot peak in my home state of Colorado.

A view of The Diamond, the face of Longs Peak, the furthest north 14,000+ foot peak in Colorado. We backpacked this peak and climbed this ridge the night before our summit via the Class 3 approach, also known as the Keyhole Route.

Looking up at the Eagles Nest, the striped peak on the far right of the ridgeline pictured here. This was the first view we had of the Nest while approaching the basin during a backpacking trip earlier in the 2020 summer season.

🐕 I also have a very friendly Husky-Dane-mutt mix named Otis.

The following are a few of my favorite images of him from recent months:
A very tired Otis, patiently waiting for me to share my french fries as we eat on the patio of a restaurant after a long backpacking trip.
