My name is Sam Keller and I'm an Engineering Lead in Washington, DC, for Nava, a public benefit corporation working with government agencies to improve their digital services. I'm a software engineer with 7 years of professional experience with a particular focus on performant backend web services; I have extensive experience with Node.js APIs, Python (particularly Django) applications, and AWS, as well as additional experience with a slew of other technologies.
In my spare time, I like to read (see my reading list!
), bike, play chess, hike, and watch basketball.
