About Me

Hi, thanks for stopping by 👋. I’m Stephen Hanson, an Austin-based web and mobile developer. I currently work as Development Director at a digital agency called thoughtbot, where I help clients bring their web and mobile ideas to life.

I’m motivated by building. I get satisfaction from making things that are useful and delightful. That’s why I built the office I work out of and furniture in my home, and it’s also why I built open source tools like Fishery and Belt.

I’m a generalist, with some deep specializations. I’m happiest in positions where I can have a large impact. I enjoy working across the stack and across teams, implementing mission-critical features from end-to-end. Over the course of my 13 year career, I’ve worked in many different technologies, with recent years focused on React, React Native, Ruby on Rails, and Node.

You can get to know me a little bit here:

The best way to get in touch with me is by email or LinkedIn if we are connected there, though I might not check that as frequently.
