Kendall Whitman

Hi! I'm Kendall.

I'm a frontend developer who helps build responsive, scalable applications focusing on code simplicity and straight forward solutions so companies can bring their ideas to market faster.

What I've Been Doing

Overlay Analytics

April 2020 - August 2021

With Overlay Analytics I worked on the frontend team, collaborating with the backend, data, and design teams to build out a scalable UI interface.

CNBC

December 2020 - April 2020

At CNBC, I worked on the Engagement team, building out new core functionality. This included new features and bugfixes in a scrum environment. The languages used here are React with SCSS, some GraphQL, and Jest/Enzyme for lots of testing.

Camping World

September 2020 - November 2020

Worked with Camping World as a senior front end devloper, building a platform for easy RV rentals.

Complyify

May 2020 - August 2020

With Complyify I worked on creating and managing the frontend application for reviewing forgiveness loan requests regarding the Paycheck Protection Program. Most of my time was spent designing and building React components with minimal guidance, and writing unit tests in Jest to increase code coverage.

Realtor.com (Move Inc.)

October 2019 to May 2020

Working remotely from Dallas, I worked on a small team of designers and developers creating and managing the Sell and MyHome pages of realtor.com. Most of my day is spent working with React, implementing API endpoints via Express and GraphQL, and building out our pages with Styled Components. More recently I've begun working with our mobile team, building out widgets with Dart and Flutter for our native apps.

Doorsteps.com (Move Inc.)

July 2017 to May 2019

At Doorsteps, I worked on a small, cross functional team with four other developers. We useed ReactJS, Redux, PostgreSQL, SCSS, and other technologies to build out our front end with mostly NodeJS (We still had a lone Ruby on Rails server) on the backend. While being a cross functional team means I touch all parts of the application, my strengths tend to lie in the front end, writing JavaScript and SCSS components.

Alkami

March 2016 to January 2017

Most of my responsibilities at Alkami were building out the front end for our banking clients. After working with the design team, I would take the finished design and build out the layouts needed. I would also build out new features introduced by our project manager. We used an ASP.NET framework, with SASS CSS, and KnockoutJS as our front end framework.

DoctorLogic

July 2014 to March 2016

DoctorLogic was where I first started my web development career after my four year stint in IT support. I worked closely with the lead designer and would build out front page designs from Photoshop mockups. We used an ASP.NET framework, LESS CSS, and vanilla JavaScript. After becoming the sole front end developer, I learned more than I expected to, and am still using that knowledge in my career today.
