Work Experience

Research Square / Software Engineer

November 2014 - Present

Research Square is a company that helps academic researchers more effectively communicate their work. At Research Square, I’m a software engineer and architect for our researcher application. Here are a few ways I’ve served Research Square recently.

  • Worked to convert our legacy build process (a combination of grunt, bower, assetify, yui compressor, etc) to webpack
  • Created a handlebars templating framework to work with Redux, to give developers the ability to advance their skills while simulatenously supporting Internet Explorer 7+
  • Centralized four versions of our cart into a single cart process that addresses the needs of our partners and researchers
  • Worked with management to deprecate Internet Explorer 7 & 8, in order for React to become a feasible technology our developers use
  • Converted our handlebars-redux code to React, and am currently in the process of converting our legacy code into a single-page React / Redux powered application
  • Added javascript unit testing to our code base, and have been a continuing advocate to encourage our team to test their code
  • Created a pull request bot (posts PRs to Slack) as well as an accompanying UI to ease the transition of our team from Phabricator to Github
