Vizify.com -- the best place to show who you are online.

As a co-founder, I have been involved with nearly every aspect of the business including fundraising, software development, product direction, product management, hiring, operations, customer support, cloud-spend, and marketing. But at heart I’m a software engineering leader and developer.

I manage the day-to-day development and operations of our product while leading the software engineering team, including the core responsibilities of all feature planning, release planning, and engineering team management using agile development techniques. We release a new version of Vizify nearly every single week!

I’m also a developer on the backend systems of Vizify responsible for interacting with and mining data from external services, as well as developing a scalable architecture which has been tested to sustainably handle nearly a thousand sign-ups per minute using a custom distributed worker platform that retrieves and analyzes a user’s social data. We give our new users a beautiful full bio in under 60 seconds and they barely need to lift a finger.

I routinely create and execute analytical marketing/growth hacking plans using A/B testing and funnel analysis that have resulting in 5x returns in various aspects of the product, from email opens/clicks to sign-ups to shares. We regularly make changes to Vizify in an effort to increase both user growth and activity every week.
