I’m Kraig, and I’m a software engineer. This is where I write software engineering things.

I also write on Medium, though shorter form content, my reading list, and personal updates will stay here.

My experience

I’ve been a software engineer since 2018, after finishing my studies at Princeton. I graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering, though I haven’t used the “electrical” part much since then! I worked in Vermont at for a couple years as a backend engineer, then at Stash for 3 years as a tech lead and architect for a cross-functional team. I’m now at Shiftsmart building out a new growth team from the ground up.

Get in touch

I’d love to hear from you. Please get in touch if you want to talk software, if you disagree with anything I’ve said, or if you’ve got general edits or feedback.

If you’re a junior or intermediate engineer, or if you’re a senior engineer looking to get to the Staff+ level, hit me up and we can set up a coffee chat. I’d also be thrilled to consult on games, projects, or startup ideas.

If you reach out to me on LinkedIn, I’d be happy to pass on my email as well.

Hobbies and stuff

Outside of work I love hiking and being in the outdoors. I grew up in Vermont, so I suppose it’s in my blood! I also enjoy soccer and weightlifting. On rainy days, or during the long winters, I play a lot of video games and read books.

About the site name

For those curious, the name “World Without Eng” comes from an older translation of the Koine Greek phrase “εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων”. Literally translated, it reads “into the ages of ages”, which is an idiom meaning “forever”.

Sixteenth century English books of Christian prayer rendered the phrase “world without end”, from which I’ve taken “world without eng”.
