Experience

  • Full-stack Developer
    WeCodePixels (Oct 2019 - Ongoing)

    As part of the WeCodePixels team I provide a wide-array of full-stack development services for our clients. The technologies used are as varied as our clients themselves.

    One important project I built is a large-in-scope platform with Symfony and React for a sizable manufacturer which provides stock management and monitoring of their various processes. I have also built business-intensive tooling which integrates their previous processes into a single end-to-end flow that handles everything from the moment their product is manufactured (inventory management and order processing) to the moment it’s shipped to the customer (integration of billing and shipping for all major US providers).

    Other projects I worked on provided the following opportunities:

    – Building a computer vision application with Python and OpenCV which when integrated through WordPress allowed our client’s customers to take sub-millimetre accurate measurements of O-Rings with a phone photograph;
    – Expanding the functionality of a commercial in-house media WordPress plugin to include automatic face detection, feature developed with PHP and JavaScript;
    – Building rich statistics functionality for WordPress (through WooCommerce) for a leading musical instrument manufacturer which provides valuable purchasing information of their various courses.
