My Name is Nikhil Hira
I'm a Ruby on Rails
From learning to fly planes at the age of 19 to pursuing careers in finance and marketing, I've always loved the challenge and excitment of learning something new. My love of learning was one of the big reasons I decided to pursue my growing interest in development as a full time endeavor and it continues to fuel my drive forward.
That drive led me from my home in Tampa Florida to Code Academy in Chicago, where for three months I built a foundation in full stack web development in Ruby on Rails. After attending Code Academy I moved to San Francisco where I joined the web team at thredUP.com, one of the leading startups in the online clothing consignment space. During my time there I helped build new features for the companies client facing app while continually adding to and sharpening my skills to bring more value to my team and company.
I'm currently looking for a new opportunity to join a team of developers who value learning, growth and enjoy sharing knowledge amongst one another. If your team has room for a developer like me, please don't hesitate to contact me.
