In my current role, I: • Automated creation of a developer virtual machine using Vagrant and Puppet, drastically reducing and error-prone and inconsistent manual process from a few days to under 2 hours • Worked with development teams to automate DB patching using Liquibase, ensuring code and DB changes are version controlled and applied in lockstep with code deployments • Continually monitor industry trends and advocate automation improvements where possible to increase time-to-market and quality of software delivery From October 2014 to Present (1 year 2 months) Principal Support Analyst, IS @ • Spearheaded the transition of our application's code-base from StarTeam to GIT (version control systems) • Drove automation in build/deploy processes (scripting, BuildForge, Jenkins), greatly reducing the need for constant monitoring and human intervention at each step of the way. due to these improvements, the team realized over 50% reduction in build & deploy times • Drove automation of the merge process in StarTeam, reducing handoff frequency beteen the SCM and development teams, and enabling development to take more direct responsibility for merging their own code and thereby also freeing up the SCM Build team to focus on both higher-value and higher-priority work • Work with the Development and Quality Management teams to onboard new tools and processes • Onboard, train and support new team members From March 2010 to September 2014 (4 years 7 months) Senior Software Release Engineer @ Led an effort to migrate several large projects with 5-10 years of history from Perforce and CVS to Subversion 1.5. Some of my achievements were: • Automated smoke-testing of installers using Perl and expect thereby saving 30% of each release engineer’s time, allowing them to concentrate on other improvement and learning opportunities • Implemented and maintained a rolling-base approach to builds which reduced compilation time by over 60%, indirectly resulting in accurate calculation of delta files to be shipped between releases. • Took over extremely in-stable builds for a sick project, quickly restructured build process and stabilized nightly builds across several platforms, ensuring delivery across all platforms within a month, which was greatly appreciated by the development team and managers • Developed self-service web-tool in JSP, Java and MySQL to aide development team with creation of temporary test patches, thereby resulting in savings in 10% of release engineering team’s time. • Recognized with EMC Select Award in May 2009 in recognition of outstanding commitment to EMC RMSG’s values The job often requires me to carry out ad-hoc Windows and Linux Administration tasks to support other activities like configuration of build servers, administration of Perforce, Subversion, MySQL 5.1 database server and Build Forge, development of source control hooks to integrate with defect tracking tools ClearQuest (cqperl), setup and support of Web Tools using Apache HTTPD/Tomcat and development of these tools using XHTML, CSS, JSP and Java.
