Hello, world!

My name is Justin Juno. I'm an infinitely curious and optimistic software developer seeking career opportunities. Welcome to my corner of the internet.

About Me

Hey There!

My name is Justin Juno. I'm an infinitely curious and optimistic software developer from the Lone Star State. I share a home with my beautiful wife, our crazy twins, and one grumpy dachshund. I enjoy spending time with my family, woodworking, and binge-watching The Office. My goals are to stay healthy, spread positivity, and to be more active in the open-source community.

My Developer Journey

In 2017-2018, I attended Bloc. An online boot camp for modern web development where I studied HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React, and Ruby on Rails. I was nearing completion when my twins arrived prematurely.

Shortly after, I put my education on hold to focus on family. Even though I was no longer eligible to graduate, I was determined to become a professional developer. So I harnessed the powers of Google, Twitter, and amazing platforms like Frontend Masters, Egghead, and freeCodeCamp to fill my gaps in knowledge.

Fast-forwarding through a lot of long nights, weekends, and contract gigs, I was offered a full-time role at HiringSolved, where I focused on all things frontend. It was an amazing opportunity, but 2020 had other plans and I was let go (along with some incredibly talented peers). Needless to say...

I'm looking for my next role!

I would love to join a diverse team that values work-life balance, transparency, and encourages personal/ professional growth. If you'd like to learn more about me or discuss career opportunities, please get in touch!

My Principles

  • Work hard, but always work harder at home. In other words, family first, career second.
  • Always avoid assumptions. Google everything and ask "stupid questions".
  • Learning is about consistency, not difficulty. So seek understanding, not mastery.

"You can learn a lot for the low price of your ego."
