About Me

My name is Corey Ballou and I'm a 39 year old crypto fintech innovator from Charlotte, NC.

Over the past 10 years, I have been directly responsible for architecting, building, optimizing, scaling, and leading engineering for extremely complex SaaS applications (two patents filed). I had the pleasure of being a thought leader in crypto fintech as the CTO of Unbanked and in the domain industry as the technical CEO of POP.co.

I graduated from Clarkson University with a B.S. in Computer Science in 2007 where I received dual minors in Information Technology and Business Administration. I have been building web applications professionally for over 16 years, trend setting remote work since 2012!

My technical engineering skills are expansive: I handle both backend and frontend web development, blockchain development, custom web applications development, custom API design and development, wordpress theming & plugin development, database development and design, website optimization, performance tuning, system and network administration, and writing a substantial amount of code. My work primarily revolves around Blockchain, Crypto, Fintech, web3, Node.js, JavaScript, TypeScript, Laravel, PHP, MySQL, WordPress, Vue.js, CSS/SCSS, HTML, nginx, and Linux. I have a plethora of pet projects and open source contributions.

My Work

I don't stop work after office hours. I invested a lot of time developing open source plugins and libraries. When I'm not coding, I'm keeping up with the latest trends in startups and cutting edge technology. My finger is constantly on the pulse of what's hot in tech. I have a plethora of pet projects I've built.

I have expansive knowledge of both frontend development and backend development. I am extremely proficient with developer operations and Linux server management, including version control and deployment with git, svn, capistrano, and ansible. I enjoy solving problems regarding security, scalability, and optimizing code.
