Jacob does code and stuff

Jacob Emerick

Howdy! You've found my online portfolio. My name is Jacob Emerick and I am a software engineer who works remotely for Shutterstock. I specialize in backend application architecture and development, though I also have frontend, management, and data science skills as well.

When I'm not programming, I enjoy backpacking, hiking, reading, and rough-housing with my two sons. I do spend a lot of time coding, though, for both work and open source. My current areas of focus are…

  • Service-Orientated Architecture patterns
  • APIs, particularly with spec design
  • Backend Javascript development
  • Continuous Integration workflows
  • Modernizing PHP applications
  • Machine learning
