Enchanted Diamonds was a company that sold loose diamonds and luxury engagement rings; diamonds were listed as "virtual inventory" aggregated from wholesale databases and direct supplier feeds, and jewelry was manufactured just-in-time in New York City. I worked as a web developer at the company from January 2014 to August 2018, starting as an intern and eventually working my way up to the lead programmer.
In that time I worked on almost every technical aspect of the business. I consider my best work to be the final completed iteration of the website overhaul where I coordinated a small team of developers, provided direction to a graphic designer, and refactored most of the backend. Shortly thereafter the CTO left and I transitioned into a backend and systems administration role, developing a new system for deploying the customer-facing server and building a dedicated media scraping tool.
The company is defunct as of June 2019 but below are static images with brief writeups.

I had a significant amount of input on the diamond comparison modal because there was a significant challenge in clearly communicating a large amount of data on a phone screen. Our designers were not experts in diamonds and so needed detailed guidance. The color coding was also my idea, which I consider to be valuable because it allows us to use a 2x2 grid for images while still keeping it clear which column an image corresponds to.
This was another close collaboration with our graphic designer. We decided to borrow drafting practices to precisely articulate what each component of the diamond is called. These are what various measurements in the previous screenshots refer to.
