[ Application Architect - Web Developer - Technology Consultant ]

Jesse Milan


I currently live and work in Portland, Oregon as the Application Architect and Manager of Digital Development for the Port of Portland. I manage a team of two Senior Web Developers and one Product Owner, and together we partner with the Creative Director and Digital Design Team to plan, design, develop, and test internal and external applications for the Port of Portland, and Portland International Airport (PDX). We build end-to-end full-stack client applications consuming data from Microservices through an API Gateway, and all projects are in a Continuous Integration and Delivery pipeline using an Agile SCRUM workflow.

I am also a freelance web and software application developer.
