Zachary Godfrey



Hey, I'm Zach. I'm a Senior Software Engineer at The Knot. I'm also a husband and father and a competitive axe thrower.


I have over a decade of experience building and maintaining software in a variety of languages and tech stacks. Most of my professional work has been on internal systems that cannot be shared or backend systems that aren't visible. Because of this, I don't have a portfolio of work to show. You can check out my personal projects to see what I've built outside of work.

I also throw axes competitively in the IATF. In my first year in the sport, I qualified for and competed in the 2023 International Axe Throwing Championship. From more than 20,000 throwers worldwide, the top 256 were selected to compete in the event. I placed 97th overall, which is in the top half for the tournament and the top 0.5% globally.
