Full-Stack Program Analyst

At EC Internet my responsibilities vary day to day, and I may be working on 10 different projects at a given time. I work directly with clients on projects of varying sizes. Some of my accomplishments include:
  • Lead the primary development team in moving from their WebProPack e-commerce platform to the more modern and extendable Magento framework, which became EC Internet's primary source of revenue.
  • Developed more than 35 Magento extensions to adjust business logic, product data, and customer data for integration into Sage accounting & inventory systems.
  • Moved EC Internet toward automatic deployments from git to development, preview, and production site environments; greatly reducing developer time required to update live sites.
  • Implemented an automatic Javascript compiling system for EC Internet's WebProPack e-commerce site framework which reduced overall download size on mobile devices by more than 60%.
  • Produced a React Native Android app for WebProPack sites which would closely emulate the functionality, speed, and design of a native Material Design app.
  • Created the architecture for more than 30 Magento and WordPress sites for companies such as Fortessa, Smithsonian Institution, CZ-USA, and Novotech.
  • Served as a system administrator for Linux servers used for all of our clients.
