React Native Developer2022 - 2023WASH (via Toptal)
Technologies: React Native, Bluetooth, Firebase, TypeScript
- Refactored a codebase removing lots of tech debt. TypeScript, Redux, and splitting up large files were the main culprits.
- Worked on Bluetooth machines communicating with the app, focusing on starting, paying, and status updates.
- Utilized Firebase to manage users and laundry rooms containing multiple machines, often tracking the source of issues by seeing the data ingressed into Firebase.
- Solved a costly issue, an account auto-refill error causing users' cards to be charged multiple times. It took a lot of digging and communication with an external back-end team to find the issue, but it saved the company 70,000+ per month.
- Worked closely with the design team to provide a precise UI using Figma and similar tools.
- Kept my workflow visible with Jira and made daily updates to keep things moving and unblocked, making communication the key.

Technologies: React, React Native, TypeScript, Redux, Sentry, Plaid, Apex, Branch.io, Twilio
- Developed the front-end UI for a significant portion of the app—working quite a lot on the graph. The data points needed to be retrieved efficiently to allow quick graph loading times and crisp "dragging" animations.
- Created the E2E testing plan and wrote an entire E2E test suite to cover the front-end user experience from beginning to end. This became part of CircleCI where all merged code went through E2E.
- Launched an added experience where users could explore the app before linking sensitive personal info or while they wait for processing. The purpose of this was to give users an experience early on and improved drop off rate of new users.
- Oversaw the onboarding of many new employees and guided them through the set-up process. This included documenting the processes and functionality of the features I was a part of. And Readme's to help future devs with app setup and dependencies.
- Participated in creating stories and new initiatives and created tickets to split up among our team of developers These features were sometimes priorities brought to my attention and sometimes my own creations to solve a problem in the app.
- Spearheaded an initiative making copy changes much more instant, using Firebase's Cloud Firestore and uploading and downloading the copy in a way similar to GitHub's merging.
