The previous, legacy version of the onXmaps (Hunting GPS Maps) website that I started working on when joining the team in early 2016 was a custom Magento instance. The previous web developer and I collaboratively maintained this website, coding all articles and landing pages, creating one-off templates, burning the midnight oil putting the site into maintenance mode and launching new commerce products, performing system updates, etc.

During our company's major rebrand and redesign, we audited the legacy site's content, transitioning what was decided will stay onto our new Craft CMS instance. We currently manage our site within the marketing team with multiple users iterating on pages, quicker. A supporting software engineer and myself Admin this new site.
