About is a British marketplace for removal companies and consumers seeking their services. The purpose of the site is to make the interaction between the removal company and the consumer as easy as possible.

My role

I was hired to help improve the fidelity of the Bacbkone.js based single page application for setting up the move and booking. And to help improve the site's user experience, since the existing team working on the project was more engineering focused.

I implemented some new user interfaces, introduced some Backbone.js best practices and refactored the key areas of existing code for better maintainability and to increase fidelity.

Technologies used

The application font end work I did was Java Server Pages (JSP) based, augmented with Backbone.js and SCSS.

Main application layout is Bootstrap 2 based.
