Shipwire

During my short time at Shipwire, I helped parallelize a critical component within the company's logistics fulfillment architecture. Background jobs were being processed serially which meant delays in warehouses. By moving PHP jobs out of crons and into Gearman we were able to drastically reduce the queue processing time at key drop points during the day.

I also helped syncronize the dev, stage and prod database schemas and formalize the project's MySQL migration pipeline.
