And it's a wonderful place that I sincerely enjoy building projects in. I love working on open-source projects and have a weakness for communities and music.
Slowly but surely, the internet has become a crowded place. Every minute, over 500 hours of content get uploaded to YouTube. I help creative projects find their voice and stand out from the crowd.
Most of the projects I've helped build are focused on Discord, for example:
I work with a team of great contributors to build the most advanced moderation toolkit for Discord. Aero handles threats to communities in realtime and uses heuristics to prevent them before they happen.
Coordinated open-source contributors to distribute tasks and work on community feature requests
Worked on homepage, developed custom design language, complied with legal necessities
Actively monitor community reports, live statistics, and trends in malicious activities to craft protection rules for communities
I contributed to and steered the second largest chat bot for Discord. At its peak, Groovy was a part of more than 16 million group chats and was used by over 50 million people each month.
Built custom sharding logic to make scaling up effortless even if our userbase would've exploded in size
Managed and trained staff from all round the globe, planned, announced, and ran events
Communicated with partnered artists, communities, set forth and enforced partnership guidelines, provided multi-channel support to users and partners
I handle community relations and directly contribute to a project that helps communities on Discord solve simple tasks with self-service automation and save administrators time.
Wrote community rules and staff guidelines, solved internal staff conflicts
Handled incidents and prevented downtime using Kubernetes, wrote public-facing incident reports and live status updates
Reviewed and created public-facing assets and texts, worked with frontend team to improve user experience
