BA Redemption Finder

2017 - present

Technologies: Ruby, PostgreSQL, Ruby on Rails, and JavaScript

BA Redemption Finder helps collectors of British Airways' Avios to get the best value from their hard-earned miles.

I came up with the idea for this product, and then built it and marketed it from scratch.

It now reaches tens of thousands of users every month, with hundreds paying for the premium service.
