During the summer of 2011, I interned at a New York City startup called BestVendor, which helps individuals find the best apps and services for their businesses and occupations. It has received funding from Peter Thiel, one of the early investors in Facebook, SV Angel, Lerer Ventures and several other VC firms. I worked with the Head of Product and Head of Engineering to design and code new site features and updates: I designed UI interactions, and site elements, did the front-end code, and coordinated with the Head of Engineering to hook it up to the Ruby on Rails back-end. During the time I was there, we redesigned the sign up process, which involved choosing apps that you use and writing reviews on them, and I coded the front-end. I also worked on early-stage product development and user experience design. Beta site
