This was my first gig as an engineer during and after college. The startup was born out of a direct mail house. We would receive customer lists for campaigns and we built an application to upload these lists, sanitize them through common address filters, and then offer a platform for our customers to get their clean data and send email campaigns.
Stuff that I did...
- Implemented an agile development process for the first time.
- Got my first experience leading a team, with 3 engineers.
- Built out an in-house ESP and quickly learned the rules of spam and domain authority 😅
- Ran on-site product demos, seminars, and took support calls. Learned a lot about myself.
