Built out a "free deal" platform for LivingSocial centered around large merchants like Outback, Dick's Sporting Goods, and Shutterfly paying a small fee per redemption. It operated in a very similar fashion to how a coupon would work in the daily newspaper.

The main challenges involved with this were building out a new Rails application that hit so many internal API's while maintaing fast response times even in times of heavy use. The app averages 100 RPM, and processed ~46k claims in a 3 day period, with no interruptions, sub 100ms response times, and always accurate statistics on the page (claim count, and share count)
