Experience

  • Pega Cosmos
    https://design.pega.com/

    A component library was created using React for Pegasystem's new applications. The library is written with TypeScript and makes heavy use of Styled-components to have a scalable theming system. The library, since I've begun working on it, has grown from one package to six. Each is built separately from our mono repo and deployed to NPM.

  • Chewy Autoship
    https://chewy.com

    If you've used Autoship with the pet website Chewy, you've probably used features I worked on. While working at Chewy, I worked on a few new features for Autoship, including a 1-click attach to Autoship, Chewy Fresh for Autoship, new layouts and flows for the page, integration with bundled items. The work on the front end was all done in view, and I also had the opportunity to write some functionality on the backend in Kotlin/Java.
