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

Review Kick

I was the lead architect, full stack developer, & engineer of fully responsive live ruby on rails application for a product with Jungle Scout called Review Kick. The app is based on huge discounts in exchange for amazon product reviews. The system allows a reviewer to shop hundreds of discounted products. The sellers then approve a number of reviewers based on how many products they would like to give out. The reviewer then orders the product on Amazon with their coupon code, and tries out the newly purchased product, and shares their honest feedback about the purchase. Review Kick was recently launched in beta, and currently free for a limited time.
