I am leading the development and execution of our multiple platform ecommerce app. We have React components that are automatically injected onto a stores site when they enable...more our app. With the app there is a customization backend where the store has many options to edit the layout + style of the components. In addition to our app, I have build internal tools for the machine learning team and a portal for our account and sales team to easily communicate with stores and troubleshoot the app
2015 - Present (almost 5 years)
In 2015 I created Rebel Pixel to take on some freelance work. I build sites using Wordpress and Drupal, but I also had the chance to build my first native Android app which...more was an unforgettable experience. In the future, I'd like to make Rebel Pixel more of an R&D company pushing the limits of tech and building open source and proprietary frameworks and modules.
During my time at Konrad, I have built a highly interactive site for the sick kids foundation and I am currently the Dev lead on a publication site and job board that Konrad...more owns called Techvibes. In the short time since being brought onto Techvibes we have, rebuilt the algorithm to select jobs for candidates, rebuilt skinned the admin area with React, and completely reskinned the publication site. (Launching soon!)
I was Tech lead at Dashboard for a little less than 3 years. I was responsible for hiring new developers, mentoring the junior developers, scheduling and resourcing to meet...more deadlines, day-to-day programming and architecting the Octane framework. It was an extremely busy time, full of learning and experiences, allowing me to grow into a team lead.
2009 - 2013 (over 4 years)
During the first year at Dashboard I was helping out the senior developers, with whatever they needed. After a couple years I played a key role in building Glovebox, a proprietary...more CMS tailored to auto dealerships. My responsibility was to maintain Glovebox sites, and build other smaller sites that came through. Later on in my time at Dashboard, I was able to design and architect the next iteration of Glovebox as well as a new marketing product.
My first system that I had the chance to help architect has been my biggest accomplishment to date. At its peak, there were 80 on-off sites running and 4 national brand sites which combined for over a million page views a month.
