Steve Paulo | (925) 917-0869


I am a full-stack web engineer with more than a decade and a half experience working on large-scale web apps in myriad industries from the culinary world, to sports and entertainment, ecommerce, and the Internet of Things. I pride myself on a holistic understanding of both the front-end world of user experience and interfaces, and the back-end environment of scaling, performance tuning, and data curation. Equally at home crafting complex SQL queries, squashing CSS bugs, engineering entire APIs, and securing and performance-tweaking nginx.

I'm also a wine aficionado with certifications from the Court of Master Sommeliers, Americas and the Society of Wine Educators.
