Hi, I'm Julia Chou.
I'm a software engineer currently working on the Internal Tools team at Coinbase in San Francisco, CA, where we're harnessing blockchain technology to build a global, open financial system.
Previously, I worked at Reflektive, which is driving forth a mission to improve employee performance management. I worked on Reflektive's Real-Time Feedback, Goals, and Reviews products using Ruby, Rails, React, and Backbone, with Postgres as a primary datastore and Heroku and AWS for hosting services.
I started my engineering career at Womply, where I worked on their Insights product using Ruby/Rails, AngularJS, MySQL, and AWS in order to provide small business merchants with data, metrics, and other analytics relevant to their business.
I hold a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Naturally, UNC basketball is near and dear to my heart. 🐏🏀
Some of my hobbies and interests include personal finance and money management, fitness (in particular, weightlifting), nutrition, philosophy, reading, and writing. My personal mission is to continually challenge myself to be the best person that I can be, and I hope to spend the rest of my life pursuing that goal.
