The most amazing...

...thing I've coded was a GeoIP powered lead generation site for a major wireless carrier which included coupons with dynamic barcodes and nearest stores address

Employment

  • Freelance Web Developer

    2012 - PRESENT
    84EM, LLC
    • Built and supported a lead generation platform for a major wireless carrier, which included a custom WordPress theme and a plugin. The platform utilized GeoIP tech to display stores nearest your location, then allowed you to download a coupon for that store with the store's address on the coupon, as well as a bar or QR coupon code. The platform is no longer in use but at its peak, it was rolled out to dozens of sites, generating millions of page views per month.
    • Developed a number of custom WordPress plugins. Examples include sending Gravity Forms submissions to various CRMs as leads, integrating WooCommerce with various payment platforms and CRMs, and integrating WordPress with an MLS database for pulling commercial real estate property data on to the website for display.
    • Provided support for an agency client with custom built CMS. New sites were built on their CMS, code maintenance and security patches were applied. And when the need arose, provided support for server/hosting related issues.
    • Worked mainly with web/marketing agencies that required custom development help. Often times they would have a designer or a front-end developer but did not have someone on staff to build things like custom WordPress plugins. So in essence, I functioned as a sub-contractor, working on behalf of the agency and not directly with their client.
