Amy St. John



I craft clean, user-focused front-ends, and develop robust back-ends for enterprise applications. I am known for increasing the accessibility, performance, and quality of every project.


  • Senior Software Engineer



    I integrated the Compensation Management product after it was acquired and provided vital guidance/expertise to others. I provided accessibility feedback and suggested improvements for the internal front-end component system, and I developed the API and UI for a complex custom letter builder.

  • Senior Software Engineer



    I made technical proposals to improve the architecture of the front-end and back-end of the application, and oversaw their implementation. I built a library of reusable components and collaborated with the product designer to ensure accessible designs. I developed complex data tables and visualization charts to support the product. I implemented processes around branching, testing, and deployment and brought the front-end test coverage from 0 to 75%. I introduced end to end test coverage to the project to ensure the API and front-end logic stayed in sync with each other. I developed the back-end API's for most of the new features, as well as complex back-end logic to support it. I performed expansive code reviews, and mentored junior engineers on problem solving and front-end development.

  • Software Engineer



    I worked on both ends of the stack to develop features for internal tools to improve efficiency for all employees, reduce risk, and decrease losses to the company. I was architect for a complete overhaul of the role based access control system for the internal tools site. I doubled the amount of test coverage on my team and performed extensive code reviews. I coached the engineering team on front-end accessibility, and developed a plan for improvement in this area.

  • Senior Software Engineer



    As a leader for the front-end architecture, I developed a framework for client-side validations which utilized best practices, and provided better error handling. I added missing validations to server-side classes and improved security and privacy by reducing the data provided in the API. I implemented responsive mobile-first designs. I updated all the email templates to be cross-client friendly which led to increased click-throughs. I solved photo caching issues with Amazon S3 and Cloudfront CDN, and built a rake task that would rename thousands of preexisting files. As a result users could then crop/edit their profile pictures and see immediate results. I set up build tools to improve developer efficiency and code quality. I led the team in cross-browser testing and making the application cross-browser compatible. I also converted applicable tests from feature specs to view specs, cutting down the runtime of test suite. I mentored the team on improving front-end performance and accessibility.

    Software Engineer


    Coupa Software

    I worked on a large enterprise application developing features around Procurement, Invoicing, and Expenses. I developed components used app-wide by 5 different teams. I drove many features to completion from concept to technical designs, and finally the shipped products. I increased front-end performance for one of our largest customers by cleaning up HTML, refactoring where the CSS/JS was loaded, and updating old libraries to more modern technology. I improved test coverage and reduced the rate of bugs merged by writing unit/integration tests for every code change. I performed hundreds of code reviewers as one of the most reliable reviewers at the company. I worked on tools to increase developer productivity. I received recognition with an award for "Striving for Excellence".
