Vicente Reig Rincón de Arellano
Product-minded Engineer, Consultant
Throughout my career, I have worked for companies ranging from early-stage and hyper-growth startups to large tech corporations like New Relic, Apple or Atlassian in San Francisco, CA.
I'm interested in hearing from you; get in touch!
Here are some things I can do for your team:
Get your Minimum Viable Product out the door. A carrier grossing $250k per truck will often lose $200k in expenses. Second largest expense is actually fuel. I partnered with Independence Fuel Solutions to design the User Experience and build their flagship product. We wanted drivers to have on-demand access to the best shipping routes in the US so they can optimize time and fuel. We leveraged React and Progressive Webapp Technology.
Add actual business value, your customers can leverage. I designed, built, and deployed an efficient routing algorithm for Independence Fuel Solutions. Trucking companies struggle balancing earnings and expenses. Now they keep their fuel expense under control. One shipping route at the time.
Speed up the build. Tray.io's Documentation site took about an hour to build and deploy. I helped the team to bring builds and deployments under 10 minutes.
Find performance problems in production. I have lots of experience finding and resolving performance problems across the stack. Staffing Referrals pages took dozen of seconds to load. Some pages would timeout beyond 30 seconds. I reduced their 75th percentile response times under 500ms.
Build new features in your existing product. The folks at Tray.io wanted to launch an important new feature in 2021. I joined a newly formed squad to provide support on the backend, building a high performing GraphQL API to power their Connector Builder.
Architecting complex features involving third-party integrations. Scout —a Fuel Card company based in Manhattan Beach, CA— needed automated tooling to scale their business and serve thousands of trucking companies in the US. I integrated several APIs like WEX EFS, Quikq, Pilot Flying J or Love's Travel Stops into a database with a unified self-updating view of their customers and fuel pricing in the US and Canada.
Migrate your Markdown-based content to a headless CMS. Or vice-versa. When Documentation team at Tray.io grew from 2 Technical Writers to anyone in Product&Engineering being able to produce content, I led the Education Team to incrementally migrate a Markdown-based home-grown CMS to a headless CMD. Over 600 Markdown articles where compiled and translated to the new schema.
Build production-grade, large-scale REST and GraphQL APIs. I can help you and your team setting up a new robust API, or stabilize an system that is currently being used. I'll run your service through my Production-Readiness Checklist to setup Alerting, Monitoring, CI/CD pipelines or Test-Driven Development.
A typical contract is for 1 month of work. I am normally booked 1 to 3 months in advance.
I am open to shorter contracts, but prefer longer ones. For shorter contracts, we will divide my monthly rate by the number of days you want, and add a small amount of overhead.
