Emma Englishby

Frontend developer

Hi, I'm Emma.

I'm a freelance web designer and developer living in Berlin, and currently seeking a fulltime front end developer role.

I first got into coding over a decade ago when attempting to DIY my photography business website. It didn’t take me too long to realise that I loved the command line even more than my camera, and after brief stints in digital marketing and ecommerce, I began freelancing as a web designer and developer.

After six years freelancing, I’m now looking for fulltime employment that will allow me to focus on doing what I love the most: coding, learning and problem solving.
