Work Experience

Project Delivery Senior Manager

2020 - PRESENT
Deloitte
  • Prototyped a front-end interface to a ServiceNow back-end form using AngularJS and continued to iterate on the design as the customer decided on the requirements.
  • Built a ServiceNow application from the ground up with an AngularJS front-end. I built out a custom set of components for a step-by-step view of the form to make it easier for the end user.
  • Developed a style guide for an application using HTML, CSS, and a splash of jQuery to analyze the page and generate contrasts for colors, buttons, headers, and other UI elements.

  • Built out plugins for WordPress, phpbb, and MediaWiki (mostly WordPress) for custom auditing requirements. Also built out a large WordPress plugin for ingesting JSON files and generating custom WordPress objects out of them.
  • Built a prototype React-based theme for WordPress that used a Gatsby theme for styling and provided real-time views into how the generated Gatsby code would look.
  • Delivered a prototype for a geonarrative platform using AngularJS, Bootstrap, and D3 on the front end, and Scala and Node.js on the back-end. I created a way for the front end to be a drag-and-drop custom creation platform.
  • Assisted in the management of a custom jQuery UI library of components by helping implement best practices for checking in code, and a review process for changes.
  • Wrote long Oracle SQL queries for pulling from a large database for doing reports and migrations.

Login for Motosho

I built out this login page using a prototype JavaScript form that used Firebase, and from a wireframe, another person had drawn up. I utilized Vue.js as a front-end framework in anticipation of redoing the rest of the application in Vue.js. I completed extensive testing with Firebase to ensure proper functionality.
