What everyone's up to

Refactored components
Lead a Development Team
It's been a crazy year, but quite a good one. 

ThreeFlow is growing like crazy and we've now got the leadership in place to make the growth successful on the engineering side. 

I've been working with product owners and project management to help guide development on one of our newly minted teams. 

We've been able to work with our Product Owners to allot time to refactor some historically 'frazzled' pieces of our code base and both BE and FE developers have been doing so well with these refactors that, while maintainability and removing cruft was the main concern, performance boosts and consistency in output have also been noticed by even our end users. 

Excited to guide our team in '22 to cut even more legacy out of our codebase, attack more detailed automated testing with our growing QA team, and just keep knocking out more good software while keeping our team purring.

Built a Team
6 months later, we onboarded 2 senior engineers, 1 junior engineer, and 1 intern.  

Everyone followed our team's internal onboarding document and contributed to it on areas of improvement.  

The senior engineers are leading large projects.  The intern finished their project on time.  Our junior engineer is hitting their stride and making meaningful contributions to the codebase.

I created training around leading the scrum ceremonies and we just finished a full rotation with everyone leading once.  

I'm really happy with how our team culture sponsors autonomy and ownership.
Built a Team
Started mentoring
Due to a departmental restructure, I was entrusted with building a new junior team for the ad operations team. The task involved:

  • Working with the Human Resource team to get the job ads out
  • Filter incoming candidates * arrange interviews
  • Conducting interviews & deciding on who gets the job
  • Create a welcome kit & training agenda for the new starter
  • Training the new starter with help from my team
  • Mentoring & enabling them to grow into senior positions over 1.5 years
Two things I learned:
  1. Make your interviews fun & educational.
  2. Mentoring means being patient & listening to the other person's opinions. No ego!
