My name is Rafael Rinaldi.
I build digital products at Work & Co, a product design and development firm based in Brooklyn, New York.
I’m also a juror at The FWA, Live Coding Instructor for Udacity’s React Nanodegree program and advisor at Magnetis, a Brazilian fintech startup.
With over a decade of experience on the field, I specialize in UI development, web application architecture, and leading technical teams while utilizing modern tools and practices.
I’m deeply interested in Clojure and distributed systems, devoting most of my studies to it at the moment.
I believe functional programming (through a simple and expressive language such as Clojure) and distributed computing have the potential to greatly reduce the complexity of writing, maintaining and scaling applications.
My passion is to find simple solutions for complex problems.
Some of my recent client work features Apple, CBS EcoMedia, Oscar and T-Mobile.
I spend quite a lot of my time doing open source; either by releasing new software or helping maintain projects I care about. If you or your company benefit from my open source work, or if you simply want to show your support, please consider buying me a coffee.
You can send me a message or find me on GitHub, Twitter and LinkedIn.RR★★
