About

A picture of me wearing a red jacket.

Hey, I’m Josh Pohl.

I’m a full-stack software engineer living in San Antonio. I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Computer Science and have been coding professionally since 2016. I’m anxiously waiting for container queries.

Some of my code is helping power projects at Cameo, VICE, the MTA, USAA, and sites like Yap.

Find me elsewhere on Twitter and Instagram, or reach out directly via email: [email protected].
