Scott Bailey

I'm a staff software engineer who love's the frontend. I'm currently working at CloseFactor, an early stage startup where I'm helping build out the core product. Previously I've worked at Google and Canon USA R&D.

While at Google I worked on frontends you might have used, such as Analytics and AdWords.
