Jay Hayes
Lead Engineer, Stitch Fix

Jay Hayes is a lead engineer at Stitch Fix. Jay has been programming professionally for over 10 years. Previously, he was a consultant and instructor at Big Nerd Ranch. A few years ago, he fell in love with Ruby and began developing a deep interest in good software design, appropriate levels of testing, and other programming paradigms. Recently, he has discovered another language with such charm: Elixir. Jay works fully remote from his (sweet) home in Alabama—a perfect situation that allows him to do what he loves while being close to the people he loves: his beautiful wife and baby boys.
