Guardian News and Media

I worked with the apps team at Guardian News and Media on two separate occasions in 2019 on the award-winning Guardian Live News app. Some of my responsibilities included:

  • Leading the integration of a 3rd-party video advertising SDK with support for Google Ad Manager
  • Integrating a YouTube video player with support for Google Ad Manager
  • Integrating a marketing SDK for native, in-app messages
  • Development of a native consent management platform and contributing to an open-source project
  • Improving scrolling performance by over 25%
  • Refactoring complex parts of the codebase for increased legibility, maintainability and testability
  • Peer code reviews
  • Pair programming

My fluency in both Objective-C and Swift and working in legacy codebases was critical to my success in this project.
