Objective


For several years now my career as a Web Developer has been very successful. I enjoy the process and the collaboration but in recent years, the roles that I have received have specialized towards the programming and technical end with less creativity than when I started my career. It’s also time for a change. So I am going back to my roots and looking for work in Graphic Design and Illustration. I created my new company, Hughdidit LLC, in August of 2017 and have been working on strictly creative projects since. I’m open to any creative projects you might have. I mostly prefer to work remotely but will commute occasionally for the right opportunity.

Experience


Creative Director  -- Hughdidit LLC

345 Begier Ave, San Leandro, CA 94577

Aug 2017 ~ Present

Owner of single entity LLC devoted to creating great products and graphic communications for my customers.

Software Engineer III  -- Stubhub (eBay Inc.)

199 Fremont St, San Francisco, CA 94105

Feb 2016 ~ Aug 2017

StubHub is an online ticket exchange company owned by eBay, which provides services for buyers and sellers of tickets for sports, concerts, theater and other live entertainment events. My small part in that successful implementation was to complete a new feature to be able to add parking tickets to your purchase. Prior to that, Parking tickets had to be bought separately and often were not.

UI Developer  -- Wine Inc

114 Sansome St, San Francisco, CA 94104

Sep 2015 ~ Nov 2015

In a short stint at Wine.com I learned to work with a new framework (EpoxyJS) and built a Typeahead module using that framework as well as fixing other bugs and general maintenance for a brand new iteration of m.wine.com.  Wine.com

UI Developer  -- Yapstone Inc

Yapstone Inc., 2033 N. Main Street, Suite 510, Walnut Creek CA  94956

Sep 2014 ~ Present

Yapstone Inc. is the largest player in the apartment rental payments and property management space. Having been in business since 1995, their internet presence was beginning to get desperately outdated. I was hired to deal with the challenge of giving an aging Spring/MVC Java stack a facelift and aid in integrating new Wordpress CMS marketing pages and the existing J2EE webapp.

UI Developer Contractor -- Intuit Inc

Intuit Inc., 2632 Marine Way, Mountain View CA  94043

Apr 2014 ~ Jul 2014

Intuit Inc contracted me to prototype two features they wished to add to their product line.I rapidly produced a set of interstitial pages for A/B testing the public desire for  a product enhancement to their TurboTax software. This project required being self-directed, swiftly ramping up on the use of Intuit internal systems and creating processes that were non-existent. Tracking data was collected and analyzed after a short test to determine the product viability. This was accomplished in roughly three weeks.

I then developed from concept to inception a prototype front-end widget for importing financial data. I architected and built a Moderator patterned widget with Angular and scaffolded it with Yeoman, Grunt, Bower and Require. The application is SSO authenticated and can be embedded as an iframe or included as a component.

UI Developer Contractor -- Sephora Beauty Board for ThisMoment Inc.

ThisMoment Inc., 222 Kearny  Street, Suite 500, San Francisco CA  94108

Sep 2013 ~ Feb 2014

Contracted to provide a Pinterest-like social app for their client Sephora cosmetics. The app uses jQuery, RequireJS, BackboneJS, UnderscoreJS, Masonry, ImagesLoaded, Typeahead, Scrollpane, Less and interacts with a PHP backend. Models are populated by a restful API. Urls and browser history are managed by a router class via Backbone.Router. The application is single sign-on (SSO) and imports a stateful header and footer that is provided by Sephora’s codebase via an iframe. See the Sephora Beauty Board at http://gallery.sephora.com

User Interface Contractor -- Hotwire Inc. / Expedia Inc. / Zenex Corp.

Hotwire, Inc., 655 Montgomery Street, Suite 600, San Francisco CA  94111

Dec 2012 ~ Sept 2013

I joined Hotwire as a contract UI developer to help develop their mobile web presence. This has been a great learning experience for me as I have expanded my skill set to work with many new technologies like SASS CSS, Compass, Grunt, Angular, and Node JS and learning new methodologies for mobile development.

Software Engineer 3 -- eBay Inc.

eBay, Inc., 2065 Hamilton Avenue, San Jose CA  95125

Nov 2010 ~ Present

I joined eBay on a contract for hire but was pretty quickly offered full-time employment. My responsibility was mainly for a product called “Custom Banner” which had become very dated and the Traffic team wanted new ideas and a better look.

I became responsible for almost all UI development within the eBay Partner Network and helped many of my teammates by solving their UI problems. I was also very fond of working with eBay’s Skunkworks program in which we had internal hack-a-thons to just innovate for the site.

Web Developer -- Macys.com
