At Purple, I work on an Agile team whose goal is to create sales and promotions features to fuel Purple's explosive growth in the Wellness Ecommerce world. I develop features and fix bugs on the website using VueJS, SASS, Gulp, and Craft CMS to name a few technologies.
As a lead dev, I worked on various projects developing custom online learning experiences that won Brandon Hall Awards. I also contributed to the in house CMS that the company built using ReactJS and MobX. Since this company was more of a startup, I also acted as a Scrum Master and Technical Product Owner on various projects when needed.
In a small internal facing team, I was the lead front-end developer who used React and Redux as my tools of choice. Our team's goal was to create a prototypical web app, and it was apart of a larger effort to automate telecom equipment testing.
Under the Lab for Playful Computation in ATLAS, I did front-end dev, graphic design, and UX design for the lab. I designed and developed 2 websites using data from 26 users, made graphics for 4 NSF proposals, and strived to make my coworkers laugh at least once a day.
I troubleshooted desktop support issues for Macs and PCs at this job. I learned user interviewing techniques as it helped the troubleshooting process. My customer satisfaction rate was 96% based off of customer surveys.
CU Boulder offered me experiences that I otherwise not have had. I was able to get a minor in Product Design and Spanish. I also was elected president of a student society, oSTEM, during this time.
To save money and be in smaller classes, I chose to attend a community college before getting a bachelor's degree. This choice ended up shaping my life in a big way because I got to work alongside people from a diverse set of backgrounds.
