Jobsite

I have just completed 3 months working as a client-side developer at Jobsite, which has been a great experience. It's certainly the most high-traffic site I've worked on, and it was great to focus on some aspects of improving page load and performance. I also spent a lot of time bug-fixing for a system that has been evolving since the mid-nineties and has somehow escaped the 'build-again-from-scratch' cycles that many successful sites go through. The site still runs on Perl and a labyrinthine maze of includes and templates to produce the core service and its many affiliate sites.

In addition to the site maintenance and bug-fixing, I worked on new projects such as UX improvements and responsive interface prototyped in Backbone and running on a Perl / Mojolicious API; a Youtube Channel 'gadget', a parallax micro-site; and also created D3-based data visualisations of user data for use in UX research and analysis.

I also had the privilege of working with a chap called James who is the only person I've met who can minify his own code while he's writing it.
