Hello There!
My name is Joseph (they/them) and my life kinda-sorta revolves around creating awesome software products with code. I am passionate about code, automation, and these days, growing people. I've been told that I'm sufficiently good at the intersection of engineering and business and I also write and speak occassionally. Also a bedroom musician that thankfully stayed as one.
As of 2022, I come with roughly seven years of conventional professional experience in startup and enterprise environments - nine if you count in freelance and personal missions - and I've been writing code since I was about ten.
I specialise in infrastructure and platforms (system administration basically, better known as "DevOps" these days lol) but I also know enough to deliver features on majority of commonly found frontend and backend systems.
The space I work best in is helping products go from zero to two (bootstrap + scaling) although I can also function well in enterprises.
Academically, I'm interested in software modifiability and understanding how organisational structures, technology choices, and business forces tie in to make or break products.
I've also taken a recent interest in debugging people through ontological coaching and I'm a trained coach (by Newfield Network) working towards getting certified (hmu for a trial conversation!)

Where do you want to go today?

If you're here to contact me for any reason, you may do so at hello-AT-joeir-DOT-net (sorry, no link as a bot/scraping prevention measure)
If you're here to rope me in for an adventure, the TL;DR of my career thus far should be useful.
If you've successfully roped me in for an adventure, my README.md on my work ethics should be useful.
