Nathan Englert

Hi, I'm Nathan. I am a technology evangelist who specializes in API development. I work at Saks OFF 5th and am leading a team focused on developer experience.

As a leader, I enjoy building team cultures that support growth, inclusivity, and creativity. As an engineer, I love increasing operational efficiency through the use of technology and automation.

In my spare time, I like to build things and contribute to DEV. You can also find me on Mastodon and LinkedIn.


Throughout my career, I have helped people and companies alike use technology to improve their day-to-day lives. It all started after pooling my savings and birthday money to buy my first computer when I was twelve years old. From there, I taught myself how to design websites and learned how to apply technology in different ways.

In 2008, I started my professional career as a junior software engineer and developed a passion for connecting systems and automating processes. Over the years, I've carried that passion along with me everywhere I've gone. I've worked on teams that have built eCommerce platforms for a global scale and others that have implemented new ERP systems. One of my proudest accomplishments has been developing a service to optimize HVAC systems for a major hotel chain. By deploying this service, the chain was able to save hundreds of thousands per year in energy costs across its properties.
