To Devoted Health Hiring Manager:

My wife is a Hospice Nurse (RN), so I am very familiar with medicare and the systems that come along with it. I have always been interested in healthcare in general as well, so Devoted Health is a great fit.

I think you will find my skillset and experience to be quite well-rounded and a solid match for many of the job requirements you have laid out in the Senior Full-Stack Engineer position:
  • I have a proven track record by running many distributed, microservices based applications in the cloud for the past 6 years.
  • I am a polyglot programmer able to be productive in several languages.
  • I will freely admit to having no Go(lang) programming experience, but have extensive JS/Typescript and React experience (in fact, this document is written in all of the above), and am very willing to learn.
  • I spend nearly all of my time consuming and constructing APIs and User Interfaces.
  • I love to learn new things, and spend my free time watching courses on Pluralsight.

If you want more information than I have provided in either my resume or this cover letter, please see my LinkedIn.

I look forward to the challenge. Thank you for your consideration.
