I helped FC rescue their undocumented fragmented systems into a new digital experience where the company could respond to their customer's and consignor's needs by migrating, consolidating, and centralizing all data to cloud-native infrastructure.
This involved stabilizing broken systems, documenting siloed knowledge and then revamping every piece of software, hardware, and infrastructure within the company to meet the needs of staff and customers. As the only technologist in the entire company, I managed the transfer of their core technology to me from their co-founder, stabilized then documented their black boxes, and began building new core pieces of technology to meet needs as quickly as possible.

The replatform of the company from a spaghetti code ecommerce package to Magento Enterprise kicked off hockey-stick growth on the digital side and cemented FC's leadership in the rare sneaker market. I helped choose the design agency, managed user stories, QA, and engineered a backend syncing architecture that connected FC's brick & mortar multi-store inventory to the web with a latency of 2-5 minutes.
The shoe portfolio of inventory at FC was a simple and responsive grid of shoes, filterable by size and style; however, behind the scenes, it was a milestone that combined several disparate data sources from siloed data sources into a unified and scalable data model.
As ecommerce quickly dwarfed brick & mortar the entire company re-aligned around scalable ecommerce operations from UX to fulfillment to customer service. The minor reskin of the site was accompanied by significant technology restructuring behind the scenes, moving to scalable and fully cloud-native infrastructure. I collaborated with all stakeholders in the company, from engineering, shipping & fulfillment, executive, customer service & fraud management directors, and store managers, to ensure a seamless transition.
I helped FC transform the sneaker resale industry by truly servicing their rabid & opinionated fan-base, revamping every tool & technology within the company, and begin a data-centric approach to measuring & achieving growth.
