My tenure at Qorian required daily interaction with an agile environment, and a decent amount of object-oriented programming—two concepts that are now second nature to me and that I believe would prove highly useful at Hattori. My other achievements include:
Increasing cross-browser compatibility for clients’ websites, cutting load times by 25% in Firefox and Edge by 25% each.
Cleaning up HTML5 syntax to increase website responsiveness by 12% on average.
Gaining Python and Java certifications while working full-time.
I strongly believe I could bring the same drive and attention to detail to strengthen your team in Hattori. In fact, reading about Hattori’s mission and how much you value the minutiae really resonated with me.
Getting the opportunity to chat about life at Hattori would be fantastic. I’d gladly discuss how my present experience can lead to growth for both parties involved.
