Tahjyei Thompson

Software Engineer

I'm a Software Engiener based in Kingston, Jamaica. I enjoy building things that live on the internet, whether that be websites, applications, or anything in between. My goal is to always build products that provide pixel-perfect, performant experiences.


During my university years in 2019, I stumbled upon web design and development by creating custom themes. This sparked my interest in coding, leading me to delve into JavaScript and explore the broader landscape of web development.

My growing expertise in JavaScript led me to participate in hackathons, where I refined my skills and collaborated with peers. These experiences were crucial in shaping my career path and also propelled me into the realm of AI-driven web applications.

In 2020, I started my professional career as a Software Engineer at a local agency. This role allowed me to apply my skills to real-world projects, working on everything from web applications to innovative mobile apps, each offering unique challenges and learning experiences.
