Hi, I'm Ana Urlic. A Software Developer.

Creative and detail-oriented software developer with a deep interest in accessible and user-friendly experiences. With a background in communications and activism, I believe in technology as a tool for collaboration, self-expression, and democracy.
While I'm trained in full-stack web development, I am especially eager to create innovative and usable front-end code. Contact me if you want to collaborate or just say hi :)

About me

As a former communications consultant and activist, I have a strong background in digital initiatives, project management, social media and campaigning. From technical to creative, I advised agencies, brands, NGOs, advisers, and parliament members. Throughout my work I often focused on the societal issues that I want to combat through the accessibility and omnipresence of technology.

My journey has led me to software development because I believe in technology as a tool for collaboration, self-expression and social justice. As a software developer, my unique experience means that I am adept at solving problems, whether human or technical. I am dedicated to working collaboratively and to finding the best, most efficient ways to achieve project goals.
