About Victoria Drake


It me.

Victoria Drake is a software developer. She loves cybersecurity, developing open source projects, and writing, and if the search engine bots have all left the page she’ll stop talking about herself in third person now.

I build tools to help people save time and do more with their lives. I developed ApplyByAPI.com, an automatic application filter that tries to be helpful by only passing along the candidates you may actually want to interview. So far, it’s enabled growing companies to find quality developers while saving up to 68% of human hours spent on hiring.

I write technical articles for online publications on topics such as application security, programming best practices, and time-saving workflow strategies. You can find me in The Startup, Towards Data Science, Better Programming, Hacker Noon, and more. I’m also an award-winning contributor to freeCodeCamp, a non-profit organization that helps millions of people worldwide learn how to code.

I lead development of a few open source projects on GitHub and am a contributing author to the Open Web Application Security Project’s Testing Guide.

I enjoy employing technology to help develop more efficient companies and happier people. I also like easter eggs, and eggs in general. To get my attention, say hello@victoria.dev.
