Claudia Stamfel Frontend Engineer

Photo of Claudia Stamfel What about her?


Claudia Stamfel is, according to other people, a geek. She believes she is cool despite popular belief. A frontend engineer and a mother of two, she is ready to get back to being a "Ninja", "Gun" and any other terms recruiters use to mean, "does not use tables for layouts" and "can actually code". She has been told that a resume's introduction needs to be written in third person. I assure you that Claudia does not refer to herself in the third person in real life unless being sarcastic. Claudia is based in Sydney. Here is her online resume.

Parental Leave with some freelancing

October 2013 - Current

I had 2 children close in age. It was very important for me to be their main educator early on in their lives. I do some freelancing for other sole traders. I mostly help Website Designers change Wordpress themes to suit their briefs. I also run Ryde Kids which is build using a Wordpress theme and many plugins. The aim of this project wasn't web development skills. I wanted a site up fast that showed what was on for kids in the Ryde region. Another side project is Astro Surf. I used to have time to do some amateur astronomy and I would use the 7 Timer ( website to see what the Astronomy weather forecast was. I needed something more obvious and used their API to interpret the data in a more visual way. I had so many grand plans for this but alas, no time.

Senior Frontend Engineer - Contract at Yahoo!7

July 2012 - September 2013

Yahoo!7 needed a way to make their websites work on mobile. With the amount of properties they have and the ability to add modules anywhere meant that a traditional responsive website was not going to work. Together with UX and other developers we created a base system with a fluid grid that would make the websites work well on mobile. This was a Mammoth task. I had to leave to give birth.

Web Developer - Hotels Combined

November 2011 - May 2012

At Hotels Combined, I was tasked with working with the Affiliates. Affiliates were able to use Hotels Combined on their own websites and often needed Web Development expertise. In most cases, I had to also use my own creative flair but from time to time I was provided with a PSD.I left because I wanted to do some contract work. We used jQuery at Hotels Combined.

Frontend Engineer - Yahoo!7

August 2008 - October 2011

Yahoo!7 gave me the opportunity to learn Web Development. I was hired as a junior and thrown into the deep end. I was very fortunate to work among some brilliant engineers. A lot of my work involved receiving PSDs and creating HTML CSS and JavaScript from scratch. At Yahoo, we used YUI2 and then YUI3. I was given the opportunity to be lead Frontend engineer on a few projects. After 3 years at Yahoo, I wanted to see how other companies did their frontend development.
