I'm Brittany Chiang, a design-minded front-end software engineer focused on building beautiful interfaces & experiences

Get in touch brittany.chiang@gmail.com


I'm currently an Engineer at Upstatement building things for the web with some awesome people. I recently graduated from Northeastern University after completing three awesome six-month co-ops at MullenLowe U.S., Starry, and Apple Music.

As a software engineer, I enjoy bridging the gap between engineering and design — combining my technical knowledge with my keen eye for design to create a beautiful product. My goal is to always build applications that are scalable and efficient under the hood while providing engaging, pixel-perfect user experiences.

When I'm not in front of a computer screen, I'm probably snowboarding, cruising around on my penny board, or crossing off another item on my bucket list.

A web app that allows people who are at a party or social gathering with a DJ to request songs via their smartphones. The web app allows people to see the currently playing song, request songs, upvote songs, and rate songs so the DJ can see how the crowd is feeling and act accordingly. In other words, Crowd DJ is essentially a crowdsourced music queue.

A simple weather app I made at HubSpot's Fall 2016 Web App Workshop with Node.js, Express, and Heroku. I used the OpenWeatherMap API to get weather and forecast data, and then used the current city's coordinates to create a map background that reflected the current city using the Google Maps API.

MullenLowe's 2016 holiday site built around an algorithm that generates a holiday greeting to each and every person on the planet.

Check out this short video describing the project.
