Justin Time Hutchins



I'm a critical thinker and a creator. I enjoy solving challenging problems and building solutions from start to finish. My favorite creative medium is programming, which I enjoy doing for fun and for work.

As a Software Engineer at CrowdStrike, I work on one of the most interesting challenges we face today: stopping breaches. I build features and products that provide our customers insight and control over their environments. As a cloud engineer, I develop microservices in Go that operate at scale and use technologies such as Kubernetes, Kafka, and AWS. I also write scripts in Python and Bash to accelerate my daily workflows.

In my free time, I enjoy programming in Flutter, contributing to the open source community, learning more about technology and development best-practices, and honing my technical and soft skills.

At this point in my career, my goals are to learn as much as possible and meet new people with unique perspectives, so please contact me if you have any tips, tricks, advice, or learning opportunities I might be interested in, or if you want to learn more about my experiences!

CrowdStrike Website
  • Migrated cloud microservices written in Go to modules using Jenkins CI pipelines and Spinnaker for CD to a multi-cloud environment. Documented migration workflow and presented work and findings to the Cloud engineering team.
  • Independently developed a tool using bash and python to create directed graphs of Go package dependencies. The tool was adopted by the Cloud Developer Experience team to help visualize and plan the module migration project.
  • Worked as an SDET and improved the quality of existing features by writing integration tests to validate public microservice API endpoints using the pytest framework.

Software Engineer Associate

Learning A-Z

September 2020 - April 2021

Learning A-Z Website
  • Navigated a code base of over 80,000 files to diagnose issues, locate problematic code, and develop an effective solution while increasing the quality of the existing code. Created detailed bug reports using FogBugz issue tracking software.
  • Followed an efficient workflow, using Git and GitLab to create branches with proposed fixes and open merge requests to patch changes into the product. Successfully merged 26 branches after undergoing code review by senior engineers.
  • Participated in weekly code inspections with a team of 7 engineers of varying experience to refine clean code practices.

Software Engineer Intern
