Parse.ly is an analytics company, focused on measuring web attention. We measure over 65 billion (with a 'b') events each month.
Success Engineers bridge the gap between customers and code. Communication and debugging skills are useful to assist customers with their integrations with our product, as well as connecting the business and engineering teams within the company.
While learning to code, I took on a few smaller projects for others.
The church needed a simple website for service times and directions. I focused on making the page load quickly (Vermont's cellular data coverage is not great) and a clean, simple design to focus on the content.
Amanda Jones, a country singer, needed a basic website to get her started on her career. I used Facebook's API to give her an easy-to-manage Event list, and built a simple media player and Wordpress integration.
(She has since signed with a label, and her online presence is now run through a music management company -- major congrats, Amanda!)
