Hi, I’m Andrew!
Explore my side projects, andrewnotes blog, work experience, resume, & GitHub.
I’m currently working at Atomic Labs as a Software Developer Intern and will be returning to study computer science at University of Waterloo in May.
I actively hack together side projects on GitHub (like an onion-ized version of DuckDuckGo) and work on consulting projects for clients.
I thrive working on user-focused teams. Whether building software or writing copy that converts, I’m driven to discover what matters most to the end user.
I have an unwavering bias for dev sprints and growth strategies that deliver results. Data wins over personal preference, 8 days a week.
I learn quickly. Whether at Hack the North (2014, 2015, 2016), or Atomic Labs, I pick up frameworks and langauges quickly to write code that performs under the scrutiny of code reviews and pressure of competition.
This winter I’ve expanded my stack to include:
- ReactJS with Redux
- Neo4j (graph database)
- Ruby on Rails
- Docker and DockerCompose
- AWS S3 and EC2
- C, C++, Bash
- NodeJS, NPM, Grunt
- AngularJS 1.4 & 2
- Wordpress, PHP
My pitches, conversion sales copy, and code have successfully:
- Boosted inbound signups by 74% with new site design & copy 
- Increased active users by 12% for a 1.2 million user app 
- Won over $65,000 in competition prizes & grants , , 
- Been part of Google for Entrepreneurs Cohort 2 
- Wrote application and interviewed at Y Combinator 
- & even elected a President …
New KW Startup Founders
I’ve had my fair share of experiences as an early stage tech startup founder in Kitchener Waterloo. If you’re a local founder, I’m always down to grab a coffee at DVLB and chat.
I have strong experience in how to write successful government grant applications (OCE SmartStart, SRED Credits…), pitches that win competitions, & sales copy that gets your first MVP alpha customers. Email me at andrewparadi.com and we’ll find a time to meet up.
I have strong coding & communication skills recognized in competition and I’m looking for a full time positions starting in early 2018.
Email me at andrewparadi.com if your team wants to work with a go-getter who learns quickly, writes production code, is driven by data, and thrives under pressure.
