Set the team standard for unit testing, integration testing, and load testing our services. Designed the graph database and several Cassandra databases being used. Technologies in use include swagger, jMockit, rxJava, Springboot, hystrix, ribbon, Titan DB, and others.

Worked on several stacks that gathered search results and other information and passed them on to the front end for display to the user. From November 2014 to Present (1 year 2 months) Provo, Utah AreaTeam Lead @ The project to convert from the old numeric based system of indexing fields to a property based system was large enough to spin off a new team. The purpose of this team was to convert the old data aggregation and inference system to using the new properties based fields. This had to be done while the system was in use and had to maintain backwards compatibility until the other systems the fed into and consumed from this system were converted over. This project ended and the team reassigned. From February 2013 to November 2014 (1 year 10 months) Provo, Utah AreaSr. Software Engineer @ Started work on converting the way documents were parsed and converted to other data formats. Moving from a purely numeric system to a properties based system. Worked on enhancing the custom search engine, which was written in C++. Added functionality to the management service to add and remove query servers based on the number of requests, cpu usage, and other statistics. From July 2010 to February 2013 (2 years 8 months) Provo, Utah AreaSoftware Development Engineer II @ • Lead Developer for the Query and Results Processing Server. Successfully coordinated deliveries with multiple teams and multiple schedules. • Wrote a parser and lexer in C++ to convert from Microsoft’s query language to FAST’s query language. This was accompanied by over 3000 unit tests to ensure quality and functionality. • Finished features, enhancements, and bug fixes ahead of schedule for the Office 2010 release. • Fixed security issues with the code such as eliminating buffer overflows and denial of service issues. From April 2008 to July 2010 (2 years 4 months) Consultant @ • Worked on Proof of Concepts and modifications to FAST Propublish for various customers, this was all done in the UI/JavaScript layer. • Wrote applications to use the FAST ESP API, converting a customer from a different search provider. These applications were written in C++. • Created custom pipeline stages in Python for FAST ESP. From 2007 to 2009 (2 years) Senior Software Engineer @ • Lead engineer on several projects that were delivered to customers. Trained new employees in Jameleon, JUnit, and the Enterprise Search Platform. Worked with Field engineers and customers to implement custom solutions. • Used Java 1.4/1.5 to program business logic. Interfaced with MySQL and Oracle. Wrote web UI using Velocity Macros. Web sites were hosted in Tomcat 5 and Tomcat 5.5. Unit testing was handled by JUnit and integration testing was handled by Jameleon. • Rewrote the DOS/bash script based installer to a cross platform python set of scripts. These install scripts were written modular enough to be used by various products. These scripts would install the software to tomcat, setup the database, and configure the Enterprise Search Platform. From June 2005 to April 2008 (2 years 11 months) QA Software Engineer @ • Designed a JUnit infrastructure for integration testing that compliments the unit tests written by the developers. This resulted in uniform test sets throughout the product, better reporting, and 10% increase in measurable performance. • Automated Microsoft Office functionality using Visual Basic to detect performance issues and memory leaks that pinpointed significant flaws to aide the developers in redesigning for the next iteration. • Created programs using C++ and C# to verify that Microsoft Office functionality remained consistent. • Wrote TSL scripts (WinRunner) to simulate user interaction with the product, resulting in greater code coverage. • Managed a team of eight testers, creating test scripts and test plans for them to follow. From 2004 to 2005 (1 year) Software Engineer @ • Significantly reduced the complexity of the UI code and increased the maintainability. • Designed and implemented an open architecture API that allowed new features to be easily added without breaking backwards compatibility. • Managed the Certificate Server API conversion in both Java and C across five platforms (AIX, Linux, Solaris, Netware, and Windows), meeting all deadlines and exceeding quality expectations. • Proposed, architected, and implemented a robust stand-alone/embedded install in Java and C++ across five platforms, significantly reducing code maintenance.
