I like to think of my time building LendEdge as the cornerstone of my career. It was my first time taking the lead on a large project and I’m really proud of what we accomplished. We built a large scale, flexible application that could be entirely customized for each of our clients’ needs. Our software left such a deep impression on CIT Bank that they decided to acquire the company.
