Charlie Williams

Full-stack developer with extensive experience in iOS/mobile.

My personal apps and other projects have received accolades and are consistently rated highly by users; my past work for Shazam and others has been featured as Apple's App of the Day, listed in WIRED magazine's top 100 apps and is enjoyed by over 250 million people globally.

I love building apps from the group up as well as iterating on a concept that's already gained some traction. I have experience working to make UI/UX shine, debug and model client/server interactions, and am well-versed in frameworks for location services, audio/video, push notifications and… well, loads more (just ask!).

I love Swift— I've written it since day 1 and have taught it around the US and Europe— and am also well-versed in Objective-C (including the runtime), Java, C, and C++. I can also hack Python, Ruby, Bash, and JavaScript as needed.

Read on to see more about my previous technology and leadership work at Shazam, Cuddlr, University of Cambridge Centre for Music & Science, Northwestern University and Columbia College Chicago. Adamant about creative innovation and user experience, I am an advocate of lean principles, iterative design, and results-only team culture.
