In early 2006 I began working in-house for Gyro Advertising on a variety of different web projects for the agencies wide range of clients. We built sites from a custom CMS platform with PHP/MySQL.
When I started I was the only back-end developer. I also shared front end code responsibilities with my project manager. The digital department grew during my time there where we eventually hired a junior front and back-end developer that I helped manage along with programming duties before the digital department was dissolved in late 2008.
Gyro Advertising eventually transitioned to become Quaker City Mercantile.
