Senior Software Engineer


  • Name: Zuri Hunter

Professional Profile

I am currently a software engineer at Black Cape based out in the DMV area. I attended the illustrious Howard University where I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems. While completing my undergraduate degree I taught myself Ruby on Rails and applied this knowledge to several projects and local hackathons. One of my notable contributions was to the US Presidential Innovation Fellow, Hack the Pay Gap. Outside of building amazing applications, I volunteer with Black Girls Code as a Technical Lead and , I volunteer as a hackathon organizer for Howard University’s hackathon Bison Hacks. As of 2018, I was nominated as DCA Live Power Women in Tech. When I am not volunteering or coding I like to spend my free doing arts & craft and gaming.
