FULL STACK SOFTWARE ENGINEER
SEP 2018 - MAY 2020
When I started at Divvy, it was a smaller team of under 20 engineers, in under two years, I got to help work through and experience the growing pains of expanding to an organization with over 100 on the engineering team. I lead engineering squads as needed to plan and complete various projects, regularly helped onboard new engineers, and offered several group trainings for both the front-end and back-end guilds.
I personally presented new feature work and product improvements almost weekly in company-wide meetings, including some of the massive site performance improvements I implemented, often resulting in load time improvements of 5-20x at the customer experience level for major pages of our application.
I worked across our entire tech stack, implementing entire features in React on the front-end, React Native on mobile, and Elixir in the back-end. As a result, I was the only engineer at the company to have approval rights for both the web and back-end codebases, and to regularly review code across both.
This cross-discipline work allowed me to refactor and entirely remove huge pieces of legacy code and outdated product behavior that were slowing down product performance, and impeding engineers from developing at full speed.
