Sasha Schwartz joins us from Chicago as a front-end engineer with an emphasis on React. This isn’t her first consultancy gig, having previously been with 8th Light, a polyglot consultancy based in Chicago focusing on full-stack web development. Among her many career accomplishments, Sasha is particularly proud of when she served as the main code contributor to The Obsidian Collection, a digital marketplace for African American photographs. There, she integrated Stripe with custom logic that allows payments to be automatically split across multiple recipients in real-time, allowing the client to funnel the majority of licensing fees directly to the artists and photographers themselves. Sasha also enjoys playing piano and 3-D modeling using Blender.
