Senior Software Engineer, Box
January 2014 - January 2016
At Box I help the Performance Team improve the speed of the Box web application. In this role, I've helped to lead the effort to redesign and rewrite the front-end of the Box web application while also helping to refactor and improve the underlying back-end PHP code. I also have worked to help engage teams outside of the Engineering org in an effort to increase awareness of performance and software best practices.
I have built and deployed two of Box's open source projects. My work on Shalam--a novel CSS spriting tool--resulted in the filing of one of five patents that I developed at Box. Brainy--a security and performance- centric fork of the Smarty templating language--has been included in PHP The Right Way.
