At Conversant I serve as tech lead for the Client Side Engineering team. I’m responsible for mentoring junior team members, leading our development efforts, and introducing new tools and technologies to team.

Some of the major accomplishments have been introducing better unit testing and code coverage to both the client and server side javascript projects, so the team can iterate faster and release higher quality code.

I was responsible for architecting the building the client and server stack that powers the web based front end. I built out our first product using React.js, which allowed us to render pages on both the client and server using the same codebase. This allowed us to be easily crawled by search spiders which was crucial to get us the initial SEO boost for our search products.

I also prototyped our in-house search spider using python and Django, which allowed us quickly interate and improve our data quality, which still crawling pages at scale.
