At Condé Nast's CondéNet Digital Media division I was Senior Front End Web Analyst for Style.com and Men.Style.com, the web sites for Vogue and GQ. We redesigned Style, built a publishing system for native advertising, launched a new luxury product review and crowdsourced rating site, and refactored the code. We worked within an Agile development methodology using Scrum.
My responsibilities included assessing the technical viability of feature requests, estimating the level of effort to fulfill requirements, suggesting design alternatives to achieve logistical efficiency, influencing and committing to the project plan, leading front end development, presenting progress reports to stakeholders, and instituting coding best practices.
Contributing to achieve consensus among stakeholders and leading front end development was useful experience for my career as Product Manager. Participating to design features, scope and plan projects, code them to completion, and engineer their launch informed my perspective into the full software development life cycle.
