Jacob Impson

Senior Front-End Software Engineer. React. Animations. Design Systems. Fun.

Howdy, I am a musician and software engineer from Perth, Western Australia. Currently working at Linktree, living my teenage dream of writing front-end code for my favourite pop stars. I am not a pop star, but I made myself a Linktree too, check it out here.

I've just released my next side project, vinyl.quest ๐Ÿง™๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ. Log in with Spotify to get personalised recommendations from local record stores. Pulling all of my passions together, design, front-end, back-end, and spinning sick beats. Give it a try and let me know if you have any feedback or thoughts!

A few years ago I started making experimental emo synth pop under the name idontwanttobeaghost. I also play in a cosmic themed black metal band called Doomcave, and in a pop punk band called Being Beta, but we've been fairly inactive lately.

Oh, and I built this vegan recipe app called Plantree a few years ago, available on iOS and Android (stopped paying the Play Store fees so this one went down, people still use it though).

Front-End Experiments ๐Ÿงชโœจ

Usually playing with different techniques for animations, or just having fun.

For the sake of SEO, here's a bit of a dump of the technologies I regularly use, either for work or for hobby projects.. Front end: React, Tailwind, Framer Motion, Webpack, Micro Front Ends, Astro, Next.js. Backend: Node, Express, Nest.js, Larvel, Symfony, Supabase, Postgres, AWS. Mobile: React Native, Flutter. Design: Figma โœจ
