Software Engineer @ From April 2015 to Present (8 months) Software Developer @ From October 2013 to April 2015 (1 year 7 months) Software Developer @ Passionate software developer interested in utilizing technology to provide business value. Andy is most interested in .NET technologies like ASP.NET MVC, automated testing, and Agile development practices. From July 2010 to October 2013 (3 years 4 months) Software Developer @ Triaged maintenance and enhancement tickets submitted by users and provided initial estimates.
Quickly learned how to be effective in a complex and interdependent environment.
Communicated effectively with end users to build understanding and consensus on proposed tickets.
Developed solutions for defects in existing code.
Designed and developed enhancements based on user-driven ideas.
Picked up extra defects assigned to other developers during UAT in order to ensure a successful release.
Added automated unit tests to projects that were without any test coverage.
Technologies: C#, Winforms, WCF, TSQL From October 2011 to February 2012 (5 months) Software Developer @ Design and develop incremental enhancements and new features for an internal web app used by the marketing and financial departments of the client.
Project was scheduled to release improvements on a monthly cycle in a very waterfall-like environment.
Introduce some aspects of Agile into the existing waterfall methodology (such as shorter feedback loops between the Business Analysts (BAs) who requested features and the developer via mocked up prototypes).
Communicate effectively and professionally with BAs during requirement and design discussion meetings.
Never released a product to production with a defect, and rarely released defects to the QA staging environment.
Eventually split to two projects due to finishing work before the next assignment was ready.
Instrumental in completing a large upgrade to an existing customer-facing web application that functions as a major revenue stream for the client.
Served as a mentor for a junior-level developer on the same project, coaching on good development.
Earned the respect of both peers and superiors.
Considered a “go-to” source for insight into extensible, maintainable, and testable programming practices by peers and superiors.
Developed requested enhancements to the internal and external applications that met or exceeded the expectations of the business sponsors and the IS Request team lead using C#, WinForms/ASP.NET and TSQL.
Fixed bugs in both the internal desktop application used by the internal customers using C#, WinForms, and TSQL, as well as bugs in the external-facing website using C#, ASP.NET, HTML, and TSQL.
Responded to support requests from internal customers (often within four hours of the request being submitted) with information and/or problem solutions that met or exceeded the expectations of the internal customers.
Took ownership of a segment of a legacy application within the first month of employment, learned the business model and technical details surrounding it, and improved nearly every facet of the application in the areas of performance, usability, and data integrity.
Upon quarterly employee review, found to meet or exceed the high expectations of the IS Request team manager to the point that the manager awarded a quarterly performance bonus that associates who have been employed for less than 90 days are not typically eligible to receive. The VP of Development and the CEO of the company were in agreement with this evaluation.
Fixed bugs in core VB.NET code discovered by clients and reported via support analysts or by internal testing. This process included verifying reproduction steps, debugging core VB.NET code, modifying/refactoring core code, testing the modification, packaging the core changes into a weekly hotfix package, and testing the weekly hotfix package on an internal staging environment prior to release to support analysts for QA and release to clients.
Provided detailed support to clients who decided to develop their own custom modifications using the API and extension points.
Received very positive feedback on his work from clients after products were delivered as well as from team lead during the yearly employee review.
Automated metric collection and post-processed performance output using Python.
Performed validation of performance testing results.
