I had the pleasure of working with Caleb for nearly two years at DEPT. As a full-stack developer he tackled everything we threw at him from greenfield front-end projects, full-stack refactoring of existing applications, to working with large-scale CMS content migrations. I saw him work well with, and make huge contributions to, large teams, small teams, and on solo projects. He continuously helped level up our team with new technologies like RedwoodJS and with new techniques on how to perfect a smoked brisket. He is an extremely talented and curious engineer and would be a great addition to any team.
