TJ Eastmond

Father, Husband, and Software Engineer in Hazlet, New Jersey

I'm a Senior Software Engineer with over 15 years of experience in developing small to large scale applications and leading large development teams and initiatives.

I especially love working with JavaScript across the full stack. Above you'll find some screenshots from my time at Jirafe where I and a developer I had been mentoring refactored the entire dashboard product. I architected and developed the app and he did most of the styling.

If I'm not working with JavaScript I'm learning up Go(lang) and a bit of Rust.

When I'm not coding I am spending time with my lovely wife and our beautiful daughter and our cat Figs, reading, writing, or knocking out a match in HearthStone.

I had the pleasure of being mentored/led by TJ for over 5 years and it was a great experience. Insightful, always willing to help, constantly pushing himself to learn and incorporate current code trends, which in turn inspired and motivated others around him. TJ is always looking out for others on his team and making sure we had a good work environment. 10/10, would work with again.

One of the things that set TJ apart from his peers is his passion for keeping his hands-on skills current. This allows him to be a charismatic leader rather than a suit just telling people what to do. When a developer is having problems moving past a roadblock, TJ can sit down and walk through the process with them and show the developer how to solve the problem. This capability is rarer than it should be in the software development leadership world.

I've never worked with someone who was so good at building a talented team of developers, motivating and empowering them to get things done, and exceeding expectations in a fast-paced, dynamic environment. TJ understands developers because he is an accomplished developer in his own right who leads by example in the way he scopes out, designs, and builds practical, elegant solutions.
