After moving to Switzerland in 2017 I spent a bit of time working remotely for the University
of Colorado, finishing up a few projects. Then I worked with several startups, being the "all
things tech" person -- writing code, building workflows, integrating different apps to work
together. I also helped them build their websites and create custom tools to help them run
I worked quite a bit with Airtable (I still do) and I have used it to build a scheduling app
for a business so they could easily see which employees were available when they were
scheduling appointments. I've also used it to build a system for a gym, where each trainer had
a separate base/table to keep track of their clients and sessions. Summaries of each trainer
were then automatically fed into a main table which the gym owner could see as a report.
I did a few projects using Zapier to connect different apps together. For example, a client
used Eventbrite to host events and they wanted those attendees added as Hubspot contacts,
along with a record of which events the contact had attended. I set up this integration using
Zapier and Hubspot workflows.
I also worked directly with the Hubspot API, which allowed more flexibility in adding data to
Hubspot. One big use for this was helping clients move from another platform to Hubspot. It's
usually easy to transfer your contacts, but harder to transfer meetings calls, notes, and
other data. I was able to move all those events directly using the Hubspot API so that the
transfer was seamless.
