Jul 2017

Lead Web Developer

ZOOSH ME! is a small digital product studio I have recently founded and I am working for during
my free time, mostly during the weekends. It is still in the early stages when I am drafting several
project proposals and doing user research for a recruiting application, an education platform, and
a food growing system.
My main focus at the moment is on mentoring a small team of engineers, designers and product
owners in order to lay out the foundations for an agile workflow, user-centric design, and patterndriven development.
I have introduced several tools and technologies: monday.com, Framer X, Elm - a strongly typed
programming language that compiles to JavaScript, GraphQL, Symphony CMS - a flexible content management system that makes of use of XSLT templates, Phoenix Elixir - a framework similar
to Ruby on Rails intended for low-latency, fault-tolerant, and distributed systems.
On request I could showcase a recruiting application that is still in development and makes use of
Framer X - a design tool powered by React.js components, next.js - a React.js framework that enables server-side rendering, zeit.co's now micro-service deployment platform, and Hasura
GraphQL server hosted on Digital Ocean. 


Jun 2018 - May 2019

Front-end Developer Consultant

During my collaboration with FanDuel I have had the opportunity to work on their customer-facing application that can be found at www.fanduel.com.

I have been part of two autonomous agile streams commissioned to develop an on boarding user journey and a responsible play section where users may set limits on the time and money they can spend on the website.

Given the strictly-regulated nature of fantasy sports and online gambling in the U.S. I have had to ensure the user experience I have developed complies with government regulations.

I have worked on a modern stack powered by several front-end and backend technologies such
as React, Redux, RxJS, Typescript, Jest unit testing, Cypress integration testing, Python API layers, Java micro services and Jenkins build jobs. My role on the streams has been to provide feedback on design prototypes and develop the front-end components.

I was involved in all the stages of the second project from business analysis and user research to UX design and front/back-end development. I was responsible for designing the User Interface and the User Journey, for building the . front-end architecture, for developing reusable compon- ents, and for planning parts of the API
