Mosa Mack Science

Worked for Mosa Mack Science as acting interim CTO while the company pivoted. More specifically, full stack development and design for a new Education Technology company focused on science education. I didn’t like how much the app depended on 3rd party integration. I reviewed business requirements. Performed a technical analysis of requirements. Produced a solid, detailed technical design. Wrote clean, modular, robust code to implement the desired requirements. Contributed ideas for making the application better and easier to use. Squashed bugs and implemented various new features- Most notably a student/teacher portal for live, interactive quizzes, tests, news, and events. Wrote a custom Slack integration to the app that uses commands to view/import/export data. It also grants admin control of the user permission levels created (i.e. restrict access, or grant temporary or full access to a paid or free user). Also conducted server side maintenance and updates. Some tech utilized: Amazon AWS, Elastic Beanstalk, Postgres, Rails 4.2, Coffeescript, jQuery, SCSS, AngularJS, Mailchimp, Mixpanel, Mandrill, Contactually, ZenDesk, Google Analytics
