About Mingina

Dear Reader,

Thank you for being here.

I am a software engineer with experience in building web applications using multiple frameworks, such as Angular and React. I also have experience designing and developing database models using PostgreSQL and MySQL, as well as developing REST APIs using Django, Play Framework and NodeJS.

During my time at Busara Center for Behavioural Economics, I developed a tool to assist users in participating in multilingual experiments, to select the language they were most comfortable using. This solution focused on improving both the developer’s experience while developing the experiments and participant experience while completing it. This tool is still being used at Busara after I left. 

At Centuria, I contributed to building the MyPrEP Journey mobile application as the lead React Native developer. This app was designed for a research project by WITS University that focused on improving the delivery of PrEP medication to South African Women and Youth to prevent the spread of the virus. The application allowed the users to track their dosage, learn about sexual health and drug abuse and also track the drug’s efficacy and report any side effects they experienced.

With over 4 years of experience in JavaScript and React, I am confident in my ability to contribute to the development of your company’s mission that empowers social media users. I have a deep understanding of HTML, CSS, and web technologies, as well as responsive design, mobile-first, and PWAs. As someone who enjoys learning and building new things, I am excited about the opportunity to work on a team that I know I can learn a lot from.

As a software engineer with an eye for design, I have experience using mockup and UI prototyping tools such as Figma, Framer and Adobe XD. One of my greatest personality traits is my empathy, which I can leverage to empathise with the user.
