Vincent Nalupta

I've been working on the web for over 13 years. Eight of those years were spent in e-commerce. At this point in my career I've seen it all and built it all. I believe in the free and open web as a conduit for the sharing of information. This information should be accessible to all people of all abilities.

I've spent the past few years building design systems to great success. My experience in e-commerce allows me to tweak the design system to AB test the user funnels. Some of my biggest wins came from the smallest of code changes.

I love to design. I love opening sketch and making anything I can think of (like this site). I've spent time executing designs for clients and then immediately building them in code. To me, code and design are simply different tools to accomplish an end product.

I now manage a team of engineers that handle everything from managing and maintaing our Javascript framework, to building and scaling our design system. After spending years building features for the core ordering flow, I get to oversee the very bottom and very top of our stack. I get to understand the product in a way that few people can.
