I currently work as a software engineer and tech lead at Lyft. I build both internal and external facing products. Some of the programming languages/frameworks I use include: Python (Flask), React, AngularJS, PHP, NoSQL databases (MongoDB, DynamoDB), and SQL databases (Postgres).
Formerly I worked on the Growth Marketing team. In this role I mixed coding, data analytics, and marketing program design to grow the number of users and increase the activity of users engaged with Lyft. I learned about how to manage a dual sided marketplace. I worked cross-functionally with product, engineering, and brand teams to build both single use and automated engagement campaigns. I owned the project management, production, QA, A/B testing, and data analysis for these campaigns.
