Programer/Analyst @ Broad Institute From May 2001 to November 2002 (1 year 7 months) Software Engineer @ Jenzabar From September 2003 to April 2005 (1 year 8 months) Technical Writer and Toolsmith @ Kenan Systems From June 1998 to May 2001 (3 years) Senior Software Engineer @ Scout Exchange Scout Exchange is an online marketplace that connects corporate recruiters with search firms. As a member of their engineering team, I contributed features that: expanded the scope of candidate information parsed from resumes and improved the job search experience for search-firm recruiters. My work spanned the full stack, including ReactJS, Bootstrap, Flask, MongoDB, and Elasticsearch. I assisted teammates who were not only new to the Scout code base (as I was) but also unfamiliar with the Python language. Since TalentDrive (see below) and Scout are owned by the same company, I assisted the TalentDrive team when necessary. Boston, MASenior Software Engineer @ TalentDrive TalentFilter is a resume meta-search engine ("Kayak.com for resumes"). The 1.0 version of this product was written in .NET, depended on a third-party product for Web scraping, and sent search results to customers by email. I was part of the team that wrote version 2.0, which is written in Python, brings the scraping code in-house, and returns results through a Web app in real time. I participated in design discussions and researched alternative implementation strategies. My tech lead and I were the two-person team that architected and wrote the back-end code, using Twisted and Flask. I wrote developer documentation, familiarized new developers with the code base, and gave technical presentations to co-workers. I implemented scrapers for numerous job-board Web sites and APIs, taught co-workers how to do the same, and implemented utility classes that made the task easier. I migrated the back end from Twisted to gevent and used socket.io so that the back end could stream results back to the front end. I exchanged technical information with teams at our partner Applicant Tracking Service companies (including Bullhorn and IBM), and wrote modules that interfaced with those services for authentication (using OAuth and other methods) and for uploading resumes (using the partners' REST APIs). I wrote test suites using unittest, Selenium, and Robot Framework. After the initial version of the software was released, I continued to work on improving the performance and maintainability of the back end. From January 2013 to February 2016 (3 years 2 months) Boston, MASoftware Engineer @ Kyruus Kyruus helps hospitals manage their physician networks by gathering and collating information about doctors from a large number of publically-available, commercial, and government sources. To bring new sources into our system more quickly, I designed, implemented, and tested a system that used Bayesian inference to interpret the pages on a hospital’s Web site that described doctors (recognizing which HTML element contained the name, which contained the specialty, and so on). To keep this data from getting stale, I designed, implemented, and tested the database layer for a system that automatically re-scrapes information from external data sources and alerts developers if the scrape fails. To improve the reliability of our data, I designed, implemented, and tested an extensible validation layer that checks the JSON output of each data source parser against configurable business rules; once this system was applied, it identified errors in parser code that had previously gone undetected for months. From February 2012 to January 2013 (1 year) Software Engineer @ Nokia I maintained and extended the code and data repository for the geographic database used in MetaCarta's Geographic Search and Reference Plaform; I also managed the Web site used by contractors to contribute manual tagging data to the MetaCarta system. MetaCarta was acquired by Nokia in April 2010. After the acquisition, I designed, implemented, and tested code for a Web site, using Python and Django, that contractors use to evaluate Nokia’s geographic search engine; information from these evaluations was used to build the next generation of Nokia’s geographic search technology. From April 2005 to January 2012 (6 years 10 months)
