Ramish and a group of colleagues founded PremierDev(https://www.premierdev.org/) to give back to the youth in Africa.

Developed features for Kidzie (a global eCommerce site for kids). This included building RESTful APIs for promo codes, account management, products, and UI implementation. As a result, developers would alternate roles some including customizing, conceptualizing, designing, developing, and managing features ultimately producing products and or deliverables. Had a smaller code base and faster application run times.
At Reach, Ramish worked on a diverse team to refactor an app to be a faster, modern UI with functionalities from Kidzie, a Kids eCommerce site. The team cohesion helped Kidzie improve in response time, processing time, and caching/ data saving.
Tools: MongoDB, JS, REACT, HTML, CSS, Python
