Ian Poston | Web Developer

I am an angular and javascript developer. I am looking for front-end web developer opportunities. My experience might not impress, but believe me, I put in the work.

I built 8 web apps using angular framework in 2016 - 2017


I choose to focus so much of my time learning javascript because it has both front-end and back-end relevance.


In 3 years I have worked for 4 companies as a front-end developer using the Angular framework. I have always communicated well with other team members to figure out the best solution for a task.

A great strength of mine is when I come across a coding task that is familiar to me I am able to reference a source from my code or a link to an example of how to correctly simplify a solution for the task. My memory is very solid in this regard; I don’t forget things that I have worked on. I am good at making connections to relevant sources.

What do I get excited about when coding?

  • I am excited to work with api’s.
  • Structuring json data for my view.
  • Blogging about Angular and Javascript.
  • Helping other developers understand complex examples of components.
  • Making a spa cms to provide info about how to learn to code.
  • Using all the fun tricks that come with Angular and learning how to make better web components.
  • Understand the power of data and making calculations based on the returned data.
  • Using data visualizations to get a user interested.

I went old school and used jQuery UI for the accordians up there ☺

Resume | January 25 , 2018

I have proven that I can learn any stack given a desired functionality. I put my self in uncomfortable situations to learn new ways to solve a problem.

    Joe Hanauer -- Accounts Manager at Colab.la
    I'd recommend Ian as a Front-End Developer to anyone considering hiring. Ian owns all of the technical skills required to exceed in his job, but what I admired most from Ian during his time at Colab (and what separated him from the rest) was his ability to communicate with other team members, and specifically myself. Ian always gave clear expectations and delivered on his requirements without fail, and always goes the extra mile to ensure so. Whomever's considering hiring Ian should do so quickly-- his willingness to adapt, grow, and build great products is a breath of fresh air in an industry where it can be incredibly challenging to find people as committed as Ian is.

    Amanda McGlothlin -- Cofounder, Chief Design Officer at the HQ
    Ian is a great Front-End Web Developer, and I really enjoyed having him on the team. Working together on a big project with a tight deadline, he was always willing to step up to the challenge and jump in wherever he could provide the most value. He always has a great attitude and sense of humor. Definitely hope to work with him again
