Jordan Cole Hunt

About Me

I am an accomplished developer with a robust portfolio of successful projects that demonstrate my strong capacity for team collaboration and self-motivation. My JavaScript/TypeScript is the sharpest skill in my toolbox, whether in browser, Node.js or React Native environments. Beyond this, I've made contributions to projects across a diverse range of technologies like Kotlin, C# and Scala. Currently, I'm diving deep into Python, Postgres, Cloud and Ops, and exploring some low-code tools.

For me, programming is more than just a profession; it's a fulfilling journey that encompasses creativity, collaboration, technical prowess, and adaptability. It offers a platform to connect with users, influence businesses, and make a meaningful impact on people's lives. I'm a committed collaborator, thriving on exchanging ideas, imparting knowledge, and fostering a continuous learning environment.

I live in Durban, South Africa with my beautiful partner and son. I'm 33 years old and enjoy board sports, lifting weights and video games.

A staunch advocate for life-long learning, I'm dedicated to ongoing professional and personal development. Myers-Briggs Type: ENFJ.

An ENFJ, often referred to as a Protagonist, exhibits traits of extroversion, intuition, and empathy, which are reflected in their approach to the workplace and interactions with colleagues. Renowned for their collaborative and compassionate nature, they are dedicated to fostering positive relationships and are driven by a strong set of ethics and values. Their ability to harness creativity to realize their ambitions makes them influential and inspirational team members.
