Hello, I'm Galbeyte. I'm a Software Engineer.

About me

As a Software Engineer at Bestow, I applied my BS in Computer Science and my skills in Python, Golang, Java, and Postgres to develop and maintain scalable and secure web applications for the InsurTech industry. I worked with a cross-functional team of Engineers, Designers, and Product Managers to deliver innovative solutions that improved the customer experience and enhanced the company's mission of making life insurance accessible and affordable for everyone. Prior to joining Bestow, I was a Software Engineer at American Express, where I contributed to develop various features and functionalities for the Digital Payments Platform. I am passionate about solving complex problems and learning new technologies, and I value collaboration, creativity, and quality in my work.
