Matchbox Design Group is a full-service digital agency in St. Louis, MO. They specialize in building custom websites that are easy to use. They have a large range of clients from around the St. Louis area.
I was responsible for managing the development process for projects. I helped build out the larger back-end features in PHP such as inventory importers. Along with helping to move forward process and communication initiatives between the different teams.
MentorMay 2016 - June 2017
LaunchCode is a program that helps participants make the transition into development. They teach the fundamentals of development and help with job placement.
I mentored 3 different participants helping them with their final project. I helped them with coding, process, and architecture questions. All 3 of the participants completed their projects.
Web DeveloperMay 2012 - November 2012
Freeman Marketing at that time was a small agency based out of St. Charles, MO. That specialized in building custom WordPress websites for local businesses. I was an in-office contractor during my time there.
I was responsible for converting Photoshop designs into WordPress marketing websites. Along with some content and SEO strategy. For part of the time there I was helping an intern web developer as well that was in school.
Bachelors - Web Design & DevelopmentNovember 2009 - March 2012
With each class being about a month-long it taught me how to get up to speed on new topics. This was a good experience since it's much like the web industry fast-paced and there is always something new to learn. One of the biggest take away was to learn how to read documentation well. This will help you use any tool, language, framework, etc. not just the tools you are using.
