Devree Lewis, software engineer and web developer, leads CSS/HTML development for Open Road Digital and has a passion for implementing the latest trends in UX/UI.
Attention to detail, creative thinking, and efficient communication are Devree’s main soft skills, which she attributes to her background in music performance and concert production.
Devree has worked as project manager, grant writer, and development coordinator for various arts organizations, in addition to managing a freelance performance schedule and private music studio. The bulk of her music career was as producer and cellist for a tango trio, which performed internationally full time for five years; along the way, she built their website, social media platforms, and email marketing system with the result of countless sold out audiences and a large online following.
This introduction to the online world and its possibilities led Devree to study full-stack software engineering and a full-time position as Software Engineer at Dynamis, Inc in the DC Metro area. In this role she led front-end development for new tools, debugged back-end tangles, worked with the database, and regularly interacted with clients.
Devree was thrilled to join the Open Road Digital team in early 2021, and enjoys the nitty-gritty coding required for customizing unique and noteworthy websites. She likes developing in React, Node.js, and WordPress, and is learning Java.
A casual runner, beginner cyclist, and avid amateur chef, Devree continues to perform in rock, tango, and classical venues and is principal cellist for Amadeus Orchestra in NOVA. Originally from Texas, she now lives with her husband in Fells Point, Baltimore.
