Blekko SEO

Full stack web development — As member of 3-person team I redesigned and improved an existing free Blekko SEO product using Twitter Bootstrap and Backbone.js. Our team rebuilt all features of a free product from the ground up and turned it into a $99/month paid product.

My job was to write HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and server-side Perl to provide data for the template system.

I also designed the UX for the multi-step customer acquisition funnel that involved signing up for Stripe/PayPal subscription payments and HTML emails.

Technologies used: Perl, Template Toolkit, HTML, CSS, Backbone, Twitter Bootstrap, d3 for charts, jQuery.
