Rae Van Epps


Senior Developer

Rae is an archaeologist-turned-engineer who fell in love with programming in 2006 and has been doing it ever since.

As a senior developer specializing in backend development, they have a passion for delving into databases and experimenting with APIs. At YIKES, they handle anything from code refactors to automated build-and-deploy integrations to complex PHP and JavaScript customizations. An inveterate dabbler, they love learning new things and enjoy the challenge of bringing a client’s vision to life.

In their free time, they enjoy drawing, experimenting with an ever-increasing variety of fiber arts, gaming, listening to chaotic TTRPG podcasts, researching mythology, and high fiving their gremlin cat.
