Find out more about our organization at www.rumblebox.org. From June 2005 to 2010 (5 years) Contract Software Developer @ Stable Software, LLC During the past year and half, I’ve worked as a contract Software Developer for two early stage start ups, building entire platforms, allowing them to move from the PowerPoint stage to a production quality prototype ready to put in front of customers and investors.The latest is StitchEngine, a combination of a Browser plug-in and a Cloud service that allows you to capture content from anywhere on the web with a unique “press-and-hold” feature. StitchEngine analyzes the DOM of any web page and pulls out the precise information you are looking for, storing it securely in your personal Cloud account with a single click. (A 90-second video demonstration I produced to explain the product, as well as a link to Sign-Up and Try StitchEngine for free can be found here: https://www.stitchengine.com/index.jsp?invite=media5).I built the entire system including the jQuery/Bootstrap based UI, the RESTful Java services that drive the site logic, the MySQL database and three (3) different browser additions written in three (3) different platforms (Chrome, Mozilla and Safari platforms respectively). I also designed all the build, deployment, monitoring, analytics, source control and defect tracking processes for the platform. Previously to StitchEngine was a Cloud based SaaS for Test Automation, Build, Deployment, Monitoring and Source Control application called ShipCore (www.shipcore.com). ShipCore provides an SDK for simple design of automated tests in Java, as well as provides scheduling, execution, reporting, REST Apis and directly integrates with Nagios, Jenkins and Git for a complete solution. A more complete description of ShipCore can be found in a sample Technical Article I authored for the SDK here: http://demo.shipcore.com:9000/help/writingtests.jsp (use the user/password pre-filled in the login prompt). Or just feel free to browse the feature set and click any button you want on this fully working demo instance of ShipCore: https://demo.shipcore.com From February 2013 to October 2014 (1 year 9 months) Santa Cruz, CaliforniaSenior White Box Test Engineer @ Palm Currently splitting time between Senior White Box QA responsibilities, and the development of custom, Java/MySQL basedautomation and testing tools. Recently implemented a Nagios based monitoring system for our pre-production environments withPnP based reporting capabilities.Responsible for the development of automated testing systems, exercising backend services for the webOS Mobile OperatingSystem. Developed a custom HtmlUnit based automation web application that simulates the developer experience while submittingwebOS based applications through our Developer Portal at http://developer.palm.com.After each simulation, a battery of testing assertions are run to validate the disk, database and log entries indicative of a successfulsubmission. The system has resulted in a marked decrease of bug regressions, and proven invaluable as a pre-release validationapplication.Take a significant role in risk analysis, pre-production environment design decisions, release process best practices, softwarebranching issues and go/no-go production roll calls. From January 2010 to April 2011 (1 year 4 months) Software Development Engineer, Level II @ Microsoft Responsible for developing and supporting the PMX Reporting Dashboard, a C# Based ASP.NET (code behind) application that draws information from ~10 disparate data sources into asingle cohesive web application. The application is used across the team to provide real time information into software builds and deployments, bug trends, change control actions,software health reporting and other important strategic metrics.Developed the PMX Health Reporting Site, an ASP.NET based application that provides visual analysis of software “health”, or the performance characteristics of certain software elements across build iterations.Developed the PMX Monitoring Framework, a C# based monitoring application that provides an API to developers to write custom monitoring checks for our back end systems. The system provides for multi-threaded execution of monitoring checks upon scheduled intervals, with failure notifications and full web based administrative and reporting capabilities. From April 2008 to May 2009 (1 year 2 months) Tools Developer @ Danger, Inc. Tasked with designing, creating and supporting Java based internal tools to free precious man hours and reduce human error. TakeFor, the change management and approval tool, is an example of this effort. A web based Java server application running on Tomcat over MySQL, TakeFor interfaces in real time with Perforce to monitor incoming software changes. Allows a small change control group to review and approve each distinct software change submitted by an engineering staff located in multiple global locations, providing subsequent build push and deployment capabilities.Designed and deployed a customized full-text indexing engine and Web UI based on Lucene, as a response to engineering time being wasted searching for critical information across a wide range of internal Wikis, forums, web sites and mailing lists. Thousands of resources from dozens of locations are indexed nightly to provide a powerful search solution with boolean, compound and fuzzy search capabilities.Worked on a wide variety of ad-hoc internal script and reporting development with rapidly changing requirements. From February 2007 to April 2008 (1 year 3 months) Manager, Service Software Quality @ Danger, Inc Managed a team of six (6) White Box QA Engineers responsible for testing the service backbone behind the popular line of T-Mobile 'SideKick' smart phones.This Oracle backed service software infrastructure is comprised of a coordinated set of approximately 20 distinct software components. Handling millions of transactions daily,most service software projects included intense schedule pressures coupled with significant technical complexity, supporting a system with little tolerance for downtime.Responsible for the quality assurance efforts of over 50 service software releases, a complex array of software written in more than 4 languages and deployed across severalhundred servers. Responsible for yearly written performance reviews of 6 direct reports, including the identification of clear paths towards work improvement and career development.Worked extensively with engineering management to design and implement software release practices, source control branching strategies and testing documentation. Interacted withproject management teams to deliver testing time estimates and headcount requirement projections on a project by project basis. From February 2005 to February 2007 (2 years 1 month) White Box QA Engineer/Tools Development @ Danger, Inc Custom designed the first generation of the Danger Service Testing Automation Platform (STOMP): a web-based, Oracle driven unit test scheduling and execution framework for theDanger service architecture. The system maintained a constantly changing repository of tests that are added to and/or modified as service testing needs warranted, executable as unit or load tests depending on the effort at hand.Designed the Oracle reporting database (including all tables, sequences, triggers and procedures), wrote the extensive web-based interface in .JSP (Java Server Pages) fromscratch, and custom designed the Java based middle layer that binds the application together. The application made use of a combination of Java reflection and independent test thread execution to ensure maximum extensibility.Responsible for the monitoring and deployment of software changes from development branches of our Perforce source control system into the QA service environment. Personallyrolled weekly software upgrades of roughly two dozen Unix and Linux machines, where the majority of testing occurred prior to rolling out to trial, staging and finally production services. From February 2003 to February 2005 (2 years 1 month) Java Applications Developer @ MK-Ultra, Inc Responsible for the design, development, integration and deployment of all enterprise level web applications for our application design firm.
