I wear many hats as half of the development team for a small, lean startup.
Work with the Shopify platform on an ecommerce site in the health and beauty space.
Own all frontend code, and all phases of Software Development Life Cycle (currently using Kanban).
Install and work with 3rd party Shopify apps to enhance the site with advertising, reviews, coupons, lead generation, etc.
Set up a development, testing and deployment pipeline from scratch using a combination of Git (Bitbucket), ThemeKit, and 2 Shopify Plus stores (one each for staging and production).
Collaborate with multiple stakeholders in gathering requirements within and outside the organization using the Jira and/or Trello Kanban ticketing system to create attractive and functional pages based on designs or desired behavior (e.g. clients, users, designers, marketing, C-suite, 3rd parties/vendors) and implementing a pixel-perfect look and feel.
Spearheaded rebranding the retail ecommerce site from Kul to QÚL, which involved building a second shop, transferring over all relevant data, adjusting all the copy, logos, and photos, as well as adding a number of new pages for the incoming rewards system.
