Steven Benjamin

Full Stack Developer
For nearly thirty years I have been developing software solutions. From industrial firmware development to zero platform design. ( Amazon Alexa Skills ). Recently I have been experimenting with node JS, Raspberry Pi and IBM's TJ Bot. I have always been aggressive in learning new technologies. In the past I have been interested in front-end development. Focusing on object oriented javascript and related frameworks such as angularJS and EXTJS. I have also applied front end skills towards developing mobiles apps with Cordova, Ionics and Angular. Currently I am learning AI API integration with IBM Watson and Amazon AWS combined with Node JS and server-side-frameworks. I am especially interested in working with small teams and I enthusiastic about joining a tech startup and contributing as a valuable team member. I have studied constructive team building and have often been credited with pulling together diverse teams and keeping them focused and on track with development goals. In the past I have worked for startups, large enterprise and the public sector.
