Galen's passion for front-end development originates from a desire to contribute to products that people love and rely on. His career in front-end dev started as a freelancer but he quickly joined Placester, a fast-growing startup, as the 3rd employee. At Placester he spent several years building core functionality and a front-end framework that supports sites for thousands of real estate professionals which cumulatively have millions of views per year. Eventually, the desire to build new products developed and Galen set out as a product and front-end development consultant to help startups build early versions of their SaaS products. Mentorship has been the most valuable resource to him in his life and career, so he hopes to continue to pay it forward and work with new, passionate developers.
