Sketching

Since I was the technical co-founder on our team of just two, it was important to learn and plan as much as possible before building and creating technical debt.

Product Design

I designed all of our branding, marketing website, mobile and web products, emails, and advertisements. I also wrote code to support daily cleaner payments, scheduling and conflict management, check-in and job management, and hiring tools.

Fundraising

I designed our pitch deck and talked to over fifty investors during the summer and fall of 2013. The funny thing -- in retrospect -- about the "Old and New" slide is that all three startups on the right are now gone, while the stodgy old franchises on the left live on.
