About Me

My name is Ashlee and I’m a front-end developer and software engineer. I have more than 10 years of experience working on consumer-facing websites and web applications. I have worked with individuals, small businesses, medium-to-large-sized corporations.I started off learning web programming on my own when I was a college student double majoring in Computer Science and Art. I learned how to build websites by building a website for my parents’ business. After college, I freelanced for a few small companies until I landed my first corporate job at Beachbody. I worked as a front-end web developer building landing pages, setting up A/B tests, updating the eCommerce platform, and building email blasts. I worked my way up to a senior-level web developer and then a manager. I managed 2 teams of web developers and email developers. After 4 1/2 years, I left to pursue my own ventures and work freelance.

By the end of 2011, I started contracting at DIRECTV working on webkit-based TV apps for their set-top boxes. About 2 years later, I was converted over to an employee. I continued to work on TV apps many that were sports related. I trained and lead junior-level developers in the development of these apps. I also have mentored interns and helped them create TV app for their intern project. In 2016, I was promoted to Principle Engineer I. I am now currently working on the next-gen project that involves the development of the DIRECTV app on the Samsung TVs.
