FetLife is the largest adult social network in the world, a top 600 website in most English speaking countries with over 6 million members and 2 billion page views per month.

As a team we stabilized and reduced the overall response time for the entire site, cleaned up millions of extraneous queries per second, rewrote or removed entire legacy services, prototyped a new version of the product in React.JS and cleaned up huge amounts of legacy JS and CSS, all while improving uptime and availability of the site.

Dubizzle, OLX Dubai, UAE · May 2013 to Feb 2015 · 1 yr 10 mos

Dubizzle is the largest Middle Eastern online classifieds. Emerging markets require deep focus on performance and accessibility to support old devices and slow connections.

Crafted the front-end of Dubizzle's new "Place an Ad" process from scratch, a behemoth consisted of more than fifty pages, seven different routes, and dozens of entry and exit points. I wrote about the process on Medium.

Led the engineering of UNO, a cross-department effort to rebrand Dubizzle. It defined the grounds for the future of the company's online presence.
