Lili Manrique

Full Stack Software Engineer | JavaScript Developer

Denver, Colorado

As a software developer, I seek to combine my backgrounds in culture, education, and recruitment to create accessible, linguistically responsive, and engrossing applications.

I began my professional career as an undergraduate student of Anthropology and Spanish -- two degrees that provided me with a strong communicative foundation but which led me on a meandering yet jaunty journey towards my life’s calling. First, like my mother, I taught. I loved teaching and learning every day, and I grew addicted to the unconditional love of my students. But I lacked training, resources, and conviction that I was making a positive impact despite the 70+ hours I was devoting to my classroom.

After teaching, I went on to work in office environments that did nothing to pique my creative or intellectual curiosity. I excelled in metrics-driven environments and regained the serenity of having free time, yet I missed learning. I disliked performing rote tasks without anything to toil through. I missed the educational exploration that had always defined me up until that point.

A friend suggested I tinker with software development, and I once more felt the satisfaction of a puzzle well-solved. The warmth of it cleared the fog from my glasses and reminded me of the path I’ve always envisioned for myself -- one in which I learn things every day, and one in which I can progress by managing ideas and projects. That is the path that brought me to enroll in and excel at Turing, and that is the hope that a career in software development has given me.
