Initially the sole developer, I handled technical recruiting and built a strong development team, The League of Extraordinary Developers.

  • Team – I led a team of seven developers, managing their projects, establishing coding standards, and encouraging them to grow into positions of leadership.
  • Framework – I built a custom MVC Framework from the ground up that was optimized for high traffic websites using efficient database connections and caching.
  • Development – I developed a single sign-on account system which allowed users to log in to multiple domains simultaneously, amongst many other things.
  • Recruiting – I managed technical recruiting, conducted phone and in-person interviews with hundreds of candidates, and designed a training program for new hires.
  • Servers – I monitored server health, costs, and statistics; set up a backup and recovery system; cut costs by over $23,000 per year; and nearly eliminated downtime. Optimizing the Spartz Media websites
