Matthew Rampey

I have been working in the software industry for over 7 years. I started as a QA Engineer to improve my experience by not only building code but also providing a comprehensive software solution that cares for the details.

From Quality Assurance, I moved into a Team Lead position and onto development. During my free time, I graduated and got a degree in Software Development & Engineering, built multiple websites for businesses, from single-page applications like this to full-scale services.

Throughout the years, I have been working full-time and contractually as a developer and tester. I'm excited about future prospects and hope that you reach out so that I can excite you about where I can take your software!
