The Lead Group - Senior Software Engineer

While working as the Senior Developer at The Lead Group, I have brought development and maintenance of the
code for the primary product in house, inheriting existing code, and iteratively re factoring it using best
practices methods. I have developed both affiliate and advertiser portals fully from scratch, as well as an
API for handling all of the data requests. Additionally, I have created a cross-domain shared cookie service

Oracle, MySql, Postgres and Greenplum. I have either maintained existing code written in PHP, or Perl or
ported Perl code to PHP to help maintain a more common code base.
