Hello World! I’m a software engineer currently looking for a full-time position, either remote or in the Dayton, Ohio area. Recently I worked for several months as a Trial JavaScript Engineer for Automattic, where I got to work on their new WordPress Gutenberg editor, a large React/Redux application. I’m also the co-creator of Prefixy, a highly scalable hosted prefix search service for building autocomplete suggestions. If you think I might be a good fit for your team, please contact me via email or LinkedIn.

Prefixy

Prefixy is a highly scalable, query optimized, hosted prefix search service for building autocomplete suggestions. Suggestions dynamically update in response to user input, so users only see the most relevant suggestions.

We utilized asynchronous, batched Redis calls in order to provide non-blocking writes and extremely fast in-memory reads. Multi-tenancy was implemented by utilizing JSON web tokens, Redis namespacing, and MongoDB collections. The system design includes two Node/Express servers, Redis, MongoDB, a CLI, and a JavaScript client.

Read the full story of how we built it.
