I designed, coded, styled, and published a full-stack app to live production with 1M+ monthly users.

I worked on an eCommerce checkout funnel that does over $1B per month and improved page speed to under 0.6s while increasing conversion rate and lowering bounce rate and user frustrations.

I created a "no CSS" library for an enterprise scale React and Next.js app so the team of front-end developers was able to focus exslusively on JavaScript with re-usable copy/paste UI components from the living CSS style guide.

Experienced working remotely if needed.

Experienced as a team lead.

"As a front-end developer, James was always eager to take on challenging problems and find creative solutions to them. He is a great collaborator and teammate, and I would love to work with him again."

Katie Boyd - Senior Web Developer at Nike

"I worked with James Coury when I was at Nike as an intern and he was a lead web developer on the SNKRS web team. During my ten weeks at Nike, no one took me under their wing and showed me the ropes like James did. He's a detail oriented programmer that is very passionate about writing good code. He studies avidly to keep up with the constant changes happening in the industry and is always striving to better himself whether it be physically or mentally. He has a great work life balance and he is someone I personally admire a great deal. I would love to get a chance to work with him again in some capacity."
