As one of the founding members of Stash I found myself in a unique opportunity to help design and build a product from beginning to end. I lead architecture and engineering efforts from the backend to the website and everything in-between. The result is a sleek, elegant and intuitive application, running on a highly scalable backend serving through a single set of API's to both the mobile app and website.

Year: 2013

Key Contributions:

  • Architected and lead development efforts of the core data, core api, backend tools and website.
  • Developed the core JSON API to service the mobile app and website from one scalable source; achieved high scalability with an aggressive caching policy.
  • A highly configurable website mapping system with the ability not only to scrape but to identify events, dates, locations, images and descriptions.
  • Built the Stash website to be fluid and responsive: data and content are implemented using a MVVM pattern for highly re-usable code; responsive web design using CSS3 and Bootstrap.
