About Me

Software Engineer

My name is Trevor Jex and I am a software engineer. I got my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science at Utah State University, with a minor in entrepreneurship. I have a passion for learning, creating and designing.

My favorite languages are Golang and Typescript. I love web design for its rapid development and the ability to create smooth, cross-platform experiences, but most of all I enjoy building products that help people.

My hobbies include running and hiking, shooting photos on my Canon AE-1, listening to and collecting digital music, records, and casette tapes, and designing innovative apps and programs.

I currently work for Pluralsight as part of their Cloud Skills team. I work with a team of engineers to manage and develop the backend services that enable the ACloudGuru hands-on-labs platform to function, as well as tracking cost and usage, preventing abuse and malicious activity, and responding to and mitigating AWS/Azure/GCP outages.

I worked for Traxero/Omadi, developing and designing applications and services to enable efficient towing management. My primary focus was in moving Omadi's Towing Management System off of an outdated PHP/Drupal platform and onto more modern and maintainable technologies such as Golang and React. I owned many projects at Traxero, including a make/model autocomplete system that updates based on data from NHTSA, multiple integrations connecting our towing platforms to payment solutions such as CardConnect and Routable, and a customizable guest permit dashboard.

I worked as part of an agile development team for Brigham Young University Broadcasting. Our work included the apps, websites, and backend services for BYUtv and BYU Radio. I played a major part in creating an improved video encoding platform and creating the tools to transition BYUtv's content.
