Experience

  • Software Engineer
  • Joyable
  • 2014-Present
As a full stack developer using rails and angular.js, I helped this mental health startup grow from 5 to 40 people. I built many user-facing activities, improved frontend performance, integrated our payments processor, built the subscription system, wrote the internal admin tools, and drove the transition towards an SPA.
  • Software Developer
  • Threadflip
  • 2013-2014
I did full stack development with rails, coffeescript, and backbone. I worked on user-facing features, internal tools, refactoring, and optimization.
  • Software Engineer
  • Expensify
  • 2011-2013
I was an early developer at this SAAS Expense Reporting startup. I worked on both the PHP backend (bank integrations, a mechanical turk system, html receipt parsing) and the heavy JS frontend (tiered feature-sets, report permissions, dropbox integration).
  • Misc
  • Co-ops: 6 months each at Parse3 (C#), IBM (JS), and GE MDS (Java)
  • Part Time: 3 years RIT SoFA (PHP), 8 months Rails (Vitame.com, freelancing)

Projects

A rack-based slack bot to manage reserving servers. Built partially as an exercise in building a ruby http service without rails.
A rails + backbone site for comparing the wifi speeds at nearby coffeeshops. Uses google maps, the yelp api, and a speed-test tool.
A Rails site for trading snippets of Vim configuration I did to scratch my own itch. Browse 'top', 'hot', 'new', and 'random' vimrc snippets. Has user account, tags, code highlighting.
  • Other Projects
SFRentalApp.com, a JS Physics Engine, an infinite-scrolling random Imgur wall, a social-media campaign manager, a crime-rate service called "Danger Zone", a facebook collage maker (on a 5-person team), Ubimenu, mobile menus as a service.
