A full-stack developer with a @Wharton degree who's been coding since 5th grade. I've grown software engineering teams from 5-35, while being acquired by a Fortune 500 company, played & coached football in college, traveled the world, and am inspired to find creative ways to leave a positive impact.
Rob was the lead and only front-end engineer for about a year at Milo.com, during which time he reduced the bounce rate by 40%, helped develop the long term strategy and pitch deck, and implemented an improved interface for content availability, geospatial filtering, and a mobile site. In the first 3 months after Rob joined, web traffic grew over 500% and Milo secured its Series A. Rob went on to become VP of Product, responsible for growing the engineering team and guiding the development of Milo's software.
At eBay, Rob grew the eBay Local engineering team to 35, continually iterating on the processes implemented when Milo was a team of 5. Aside from building new infrastructure (eBay measures search queries in the billions), Rob's teams were continuously tapped to provide innovation within eBay, including powering the technology behind eBay Now (eBay's same day delivery service that helps it compete with Amazon Prime) and the engineering prowess behind on eBay's new homepage.
