Printful is an on-demand printing and fulfillment company that helps people turn their ideas into brands and products. Whether you wish to create your own online brand or gift someone a personalized t-shirt, Printful can help you get it done. Whenever someone—you or your customer—makes a purchase, Printful automatically receives the order, fulfills, and ships it.

Printful offers SaaS subscriptions (Printful Plus and Pro) to access some of its more advanced features. As part of my work in Printful's SaaS team, I took part in the maintenance and development of these advanced features.

Here are some of my responsibilities in the team:

  • Performing technical and architectural analyses in collaboration with the team. Research, viability assessments, technical implementation documents, etc.
  • Performance and memory profiling, along with proposing solutions and improvements.
  • Developing and maintaining multiple complex and interconnected pieces of software, following SOLID principles and taking into account good architecture, maintainability and reusability.
  • Optimization of code performance, database queries and related elements.
  • Preparation of complex SQL queries to obtain a wide variety of reports.
