I'm Alexandra Hoefinger,

a front-end web developer in NYC.

Before I started a career in software engineering six years ago, I was an English teacher who emphasized the difference between an en dash and an em dash. These days I think about the difference between double and triple equal signs.

Recently I've been using React Native, Vue.js, Rails, CSS Grids, and accessible markup to build a range of user interfaces in my senior dev role at BarkBox. Previously I've worked on the front-end team using AngularJS at Urban Outfitters, and I have freelanced for various companies including Getaway and Good Fight Herb Co.

Offline, I'm a distance runner, volunteer coding instructor, artist, and mother to two Siamese cats.
