Jimmy Schementi - Software Engineer

I build things that don't yet exist.

Professional Experience

SOLS - New York, NY

» Director of Engineering, 3D / Principal Software Engineer (2/2015 - 6/2016)

SOLS makes custom 3D printed insoles from answering just a few questions and taking two photos of each foot with the SOLS Custom Fit iPhone app.

As Director of Engineering 3D, I led a team of 6 engineers, responsible for building the systems which generate the "medical" physical product and tools to manage the process (including: automated (and manual fallback) photo measurement, 3D model design and generation, 3D print job management).

When SOLS focused fully towards the consumer space, we flattened the team and I focused on a new iOS app, the first version of an online purchasing experience, and adapting our existing physical product generation system to support a very new design of SOLS.
