Steve Calderon's Experience

Lead Creative Developer

Say Media, Inc.

Privately Held; 201-500 employees; Marketing and Advertising industry

March 2006Present (8 years 7 months) San Francisco

Note: Six Apart merged with Video Egg to form Say Media, and this bit describes my position through and after the merger.

Develop promotional websites, communities, blogs, and ad units for a variety of clients. The sites and ads are designed to be visually appealing, interesting to interact with, and not overly creepy or annoying. They are intended to convey a sponsor's message, but to allow the viewer to participate in the conversation.

My job is to do both front end and back end implementation of all of these items. A typical client build includes most of the following: HTML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery, Django, PHP, TypePad templating/configuration, Facebook/Twitter integration. These typically have a very short development schedule with little to no room for iteration. Many components are architected and built to be modular and reusable.
