Jesus Bamford

Software Development Engineer at Zillow

I am a software engineer with a passion to enhance my capabilities as a programmer everyday. My primary work experience is .NET but I am highly motivated in experimenting with other languages, frameworks, and methodologies. On my free time I enjoy building embedded software.

I graduated from California State University Channel Islands in Fall 2017 with a B.S. in Computer Science. At CSUCI, I helped perform research on an obstacle avoidance technique for an autonomous maze solving robot. I presented my work at the 31st annual CSU Research Competition and the 9th annual Sage Student Research Conference.



I have experience in building Windows Presentation Foundation software. I maintain an open source Android App that performs BLE over-the-air updates on a DA14580 SoC.


I have a great amount of exposure building Python applications that run on a Raspberry Pi. I also have experience interfacing a Raspberry Pi to external devices via I²C, SPI, and UART. I have written firmware for a Dialog Semiconductor DA14580. Currently, I am learning Rust Language to power my mobile robot. 🦀


I have experience in programming TCP/IP sockets in C#. I have built a Bluetooth server on a Raspberry Pi. I also have experience in building a BLE profile on a DA14580 and communicating to said BLE profile using an Android app.


I created this website from scratch using Django! I would like to learn more about full stack web development using my personal website as a guinea pig. I also have experience in setting up Nginx, Gunicorn, Memcached, and PostgreSQL to work in conjunction with Django.

Open Source

I love to give back to open source projects such as Prism and MaterialDesign in XAML. By contributing to these great projects, I help make open source sustainable and gain a better understanding about software engineering practices. I also have a repository of open source projects on my Github.
