  • Director of DevelopmentOctober 2011 - October 2012

    Zoodle Marketing Group, LLC

    As a developer at Zoodle, I quickly fell in love with the start-up atmosphere. I was very quickly expected to wear many hats, and learned a lot not only about development, but about sales, customer relations, and business development. I was primarily responsible for PHP/HTML/CSS/jQuery development as well as server maintenance. I even set up a few Asterisk phone systems around the office park when work was slow to generate some revenue! Work with CodeIgniter, Laravel 4, Zend Framework, concrete5.

    sweetriot, Inc.

    As a summer intern at this NYC based start-up, I gained invaluable experience from Harvard MBA graduate Sarah Endline by working side-by-side with her and the company’s staff to “socialize” their web presence and to streamline the online ordering process. During my time there, I also networked the office; providing cloud storage, scheduled back-ups, and increased firewall security to the entire staff.
