Jaeriah Tay

Software Engineer

Ciao, I'm Jaeriah, a Software Engineer currently working at Tackle helping to accelerate revenue for software companies in cloud marketplaces. Coming from a diverse career journey, I've never felt more at home in tech. I spend most of my days implementing UI features and building integrations. I mainly work with JavaScript using React and currently also diving deep into learning Python! Previous to Tackle, I was at Commerce.js as a Front-end Engineer & UI Designer where I contributed to the core product and design system using Vue.js, built integrations using React and Next.js, and designed the UI using Figma. Check out some of my projects on my GitHub profile!

In the last couple years, I have also been involved with Frontend Foxes 🦊 as a Community Leader, contributing to the school curriculum. It is a non-profit international organization aiming to provide diversity in the industry. We run a bootcamp, online events, meetups, and workshops for people who identify as women to learn front-end technologies. We are working on releasing a podcast 🎙️ where I will be one of the hosts chatting all things tech and developer communities.

Away from pushing pixels at work, I enjoy spending time outdoors with family, biking 🚴‍, engaging with the developer community 💬, traveling 🗺️ to feed my soul, and learning the violin. I speak three languages 🇨🇦🇸🇬🇮🇹 but realistically, I call myself a try-lingual. I am a huge advocate for climate awareness, women in tech, and racial injustice.
