Employment

  • Founder and Lead Developer

    2022 - PRESENT
    123NFT
    • Acquired a partnership for sales and marketing to pitch this website for further investment across China, the United States, and Europe.
    • Implemented the website with a microservices architecture. This involves an orders management back end built with Node.js and Express.js and an order processing back end built with Python and Flask.
    • Deployed a live application that uses Python3. The application was deployed using Heroku and is a WSGI application.
    • Worked with a garbage collector, multi-threading, and task queuing in Python 3. The order processing back end handles computationally expensive photos, so this process had to be streamlined to make it work efficiently.
    • Hired the first employees for the project UX and features. To speed up the delivery time, I brought some contractors in to help meet the deadlines and give a broader vision to the project.

  • Senior Software Engineer

    2018 - 2021
    Guidewire
    • Researched, designed, and implemented a command-line tool that would automatically upgrade users' current versions of our software to the latest version of our products. This included tools to safe guard that best practices are followed.
    • Created an automatic visual test suite. This used prop types of React Components to generate a JSON data set of all possible permutations of configurations for props of a component. The test renders each permutation and uses this in the visual test.
    • Worked directly with the project architect in product management designing npm packages. I then communicated the packages' design for my team to implement in code.
    • Received a double promotion, something unprecedented in Guidewire until then. The company policy only allows engineers to jump one level on each promotion. In 2020 I went from software engineer II to senior software engineer after the CEO's approval.
    • Won the companywide internal hackathon. In 2020, Guidewire held a hackathon across offices internationally. My idea and team won this hackathon, and afterward, Guidewire continued to work on this project as a product for their customers.

  • Front-end Developer

    2018 - 2019
    FotoStore
    • Implemented a responsive web app using Node.js and a React Redux framework. Additionally, Redux-Saga was used for asynchronous behavior.
    • Communicated with graphic designers in the company and provided feedback from a software developer's perspective.
    • Created and implemented best practices to add some consistency to the project's codebase and development lifecycle. This included conventional commits, lining, and project folder structure.
    • Mentored some interns, helping them onboard and guiding them through their daily tasks while getting settled in with their work.
    • Interviewed candidates to work for FotoStore. I contributed to the interview process of FotoStore by screening potential candidates and performing technical interviews to later-stage candidates.
