Worked on a few projects at various startups: including redesigning Column (column.us)'s entire landing page.

Worked on infrastructure, customer support, sales, and onboarding users. I also helped shape product development by collecting feedback and considering solutions to issues our users faced and helped design the product.
Worked on sales and operations. Increased conversions by ~30% resulting in thousands of dollars of additional revenue. By moving our codebase from Heroku to AWS and adding a caching layer, I decreased page load times by 300%. Also setup our payroll system and co-ordinated our technicians for highly efficient service.
During my time as a co-op student, I worked on security and infrastructure projects. I implemented application vulnerability scanning in our CI/CD system and helped to manage team identities by setting the team up with a password manager and teaching them about security best practices.
