Shelly (Njoo) Yip
Web developer, intellectual thrillseeker.
I’m a web developer and designer with experience & familiarity in front, mid & backend development. I’m a fast learner, receptive collaborator, and agile programmer with an eclectic background touching all aspects of product development.
(and my maiden name is pronounced “new“)
- CSS3 (Sass)
- Ruby & Rails
- PHP (WordPress)
- REST APIs
- responsive design
- Adobe Creative Suite
- B1-level French (with ongoing study)
I’ve worked as:
- a Web Developer at Mullen, from Dec 2013 to present. I started off doing primarily front-end work, but made myself useful as a full-stack, Swiss army knife developer, debugging and adding features to Rails applications.
- a Freelance Web Developer working on MissGeoMusic.com, from July 2012 to Nov 2013. Miss Geo is an electropop duo based in Boston and Providence, RI, who needed a redesign of their site, which was cluttered and difficult to update. I redesigned the site, using their new album art as a basis for a clean but lush visual experience, and rebuilt their WordPress backend for an easier upkeep experience.
- a Quality Assurance Tester at Irrational Games, from April 2011 to July 2012. I performed software testing, working closely with programmers to examine new code and features as well as running smoke tests, examining levels, and hunting for bug reproduction steps with the QA team. I emerged having gained a sharp eye for code errors and pitfalls, and cursed with the inability to unsee bugs in games.
Some stuff I’ve done:
When I’m not working:
I immerse in French, log hundreds of hours playing PC strategy games, fall down Wikipedia rabbit holes, and dream of visiting the world’s great art museums.
