Helped create, test, and maintain over 16 projects. The project type varied from an ElasticSearch backend API to a Spree site and a bit of everything else in-between for both internal and public use. For all of our projects, we maintained clean, reliable, and well-tested code. Helped move our applications from Heroku to our internal data center and then later to AWS, this was accomplished using SaltStack to set up the servers and deploy the code.
