Centrro

Centrro is a vertical search engine designed to help consumers find personal financial products that best fit their unique needs. As the only full time Software Engineer at Centrro, I was responsible for maintenance on existing products and new product development.

Centrro Leads

The largest project I worked on at Centrro was an application designed to sell mortgage leads to brokers. Brokers can register on the site and create filters detailing the types of leads they want to receive and set a bidding price. Leads for mortgage loans are then immediately delivered to the highest bidder as they come in.
