Experience

Lawline / Lead Web Developer

DECEMBER 2011 - MAY 2016, New York, NY

Managed a team of four developers. Jack of all trades, job included:

  • Writing object oriented, test-backed code
  • Project planning
  • Basic server provisioning and maintenance
  • Database design
  • Serving as business liaison

Developed numerous tools that streamlined business processes and greatly improved course creation turnaround time.

Rebuilt entire website using Laravel 5.1 and Angular. Restructured entire MySQL database, normalizing data and improving query efficiency. Migrated millions of rows (7+ years worth) of data to new structure, maintaining data integrity. Built centralized RESTful API for various web properties and an installable SDK so properties could communicate with it.

I am extraordinarily proud of this project. It was a very long process, we were migrating a large amount of poorly and inconsistently stored data, and building both the external and internal tools from scratch. It was a complex launch with a lot of moving pieces, and it went off without a hitch. The results of this project allow the business to iterate on new features safely and quickly, moving forward confidently with new strategies.
