Work Experience

Front-end Consultant and Architect

2020 - PRESENT
Freelance
  • Helped Labelbox ship their Contentful-backed website to enable the marketing team to quickly iterate on the content.

  • Onboarded and managed another developer using the architecture I designed to scale our development efforts quickly.
  • Implemented a real-time update solution using WebSockets and Webhooks in a scalable way.
  • Created an architecture that allowed the team to integrate with several different OAuth providers frictionless.
Technologies: React, Node.js, HTML, CSS, User Experience (UX), User Interface (UI), JavaScript

2014 - 2014
Despegar.com

NewBlueFX Web Controllers

http://www.newbluefx.com
Developed several micro-front ends embedded inside desktop software. They fetched data from OAuth providers like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, displaying it on a responsive UI and communicating with desktop software via WebSockets to trigger animated graphics overlaid on top of live broadcasts.

I architected the front-end stack to allow quick iteration of these micro-front ends, enabling me to collaborate with an outsourced developer and implement over 15 different apps in 10 months.

Fetcher.ai

An online human-resources platform that eases access to high-quality candidates while providing tools to automate all email communication.

At the start of the project, I was in charge of migrating the existing legacy codebase from a server-rendered app to a SPA using React.
I proposed a bottom-up approach, creating a custom component library alongside a living style guide documentation and code generation tools and enabling the migration to move forward quickly.

This system proved to be a success since I single-handedly completed the migration in my first three months with the company. After the migration, I constantly improved our architecture, onboarding and mentoring new front-end developers and ensuring we kept a high-quality codebase.

The component library was then used in three different projects to ensure consistency across all services and help ramp up development efforts.

Santander Argentina Online Banking

http://www.santander.com.ar
Santander Argentina needed an online banking service platform for individuals and corporate customers.

As the front-end architect, I started creating a proof-of-concept of the front-end stack; I ensured all the technical requirements were met and helped set up the development workflow.

From the start, I was in charge of onboarding and mentoring new front-end developers as the project moved on and continuously improving the stack I designed to make sure we follow best practices.

In sum, I developed a living style guide for our UI components, proposed a top-down approach when building new features, and ensured optimization for code reuse and better developer experience.
