About

I'm Tom Mount. I'm a software engineer and web developer based in Philadelphia, PA.

Throughout my career I've work at jobs ranging from two-man consulting teams to Silicon Valley tech giants. I've created command-line processing scripts and built e-commerce apps and web presences for several Fortune 500 companies.

As an engineer, I work closely with designers and project managers to ensure the product I deliver meets their highest standards.

As a team lead, I communicate clearly with business product owners and the members of my team to ensure requirements, risks, and updates are clearly communicated to all parties.

As a developer, I stay up-to-date with the latest trends, frameworks, and methods to ensure I can choose the right tool for every job.

Work

I'm a veteran developer with experience in both front-end and back-end software engineering, as well as hardware architecture. I got my start writing system administration tools in VBScript, which made the transition to .NET (C# and VB) that much easier when the time came. From there, I began working on web-based projects, where I became familiar with the traditional web languages and tools like PHP, HTML, CSS, and Javascript, interacting with a range of databases including traditional SQL servers like MySQL and PostgreSQL, as well as NoSQL databases like Firebase. I've also worked extensively on Java/Oracle e-commerce platforms. In my spare time, and for client projects, I enjoy learning new languages and frameworks; some of my recent projects are built with Vue and Node and incorporate templating languages such as Blade, Jade, and Mustache/Handlebars.

I've assembled a short list of some of the projects I'm most proud to have worked on. Click on a client logo to view more information.
