I bill myself as a front-end developer. My bosses called me a programmer but for the most part I spent my time at work building websites, previously for Media Fusion Technologies, Inc. I believe that my real job is to solve problems: understand the requirements and then figuring out a solution that fits those requirements, the timeframe and the budget. Over the years I’ve had to improve my skill set by keeping up with new technologies and trends, which allowed me to take on additional roles and responsibilities at work.
Media Fusion Technologies, Inc.
Jan 2014 – March 2015
My role at Media Fusion Technologies, Inc. was to work on their proprietary CMS that they used for every project. It is a ASP.NET WebForms website, written in VB.NET using LINQ to SQL. The work involved was either modifying or adding new features to the CMS or providing support for existing websites. Not being able to use the latest and greatest technologies and not being able to pick whatever I wanted to use was a good experience with working with established and legacy systems.
Senior Web Developer
April 2010 – Nov 2013
I was Allebach Communication’s senior web developer providing, the company a in-house solution for interactive projects.
My primary role at Allebach was to handle the company’s interactive projects, which included creating templates, creating websites, working with Flash, setting up CMSs and performing maintenance tasks. I took on many additional roles and responsibilities in my job, which required me to continue to expand my skill set, which allowed the company to provide solutions to clients. Beyond developing websites I also provided written guides, functional specs, estimations and documentation and training for clients.
I also promoted the use of third party services and products like Wufoo, Shopify, nopCommerce and existing CRMs in order to provide clients with the best solution to their problem or need. I’ve created websites for clients that include Hatfield Quality Meats, Univest Bank and Trust and Power Home Remodeling Group.
