SENIOR SOFTWARE ENGINEER

I worked in a financial tech startup as a full stack engineer and UI lead on a payment processing application for the trucking industry. The application was built using React/ Redux (with TypeScript) for the UI, a Node API (TypeScript) built on Express and Postgres database. We used socket.io for real time updates and integrated Twilio, Slack, Sendgrid and other 3rd party services to provide functionality. My role was primarily building custom React components and utilizing external libraries/ components to provide functionality based on specifications set forth by the business as well as feedback from customers. I also developed our UI unit and functional testing process using Jest and Enzyme as well as Mocha and Chai. We worked in agile, one week sprints, managed our projects with JIRA and Trello, used Github and Gitlab for source control and deployed on Heroku.

From a 2 page spec sheet and a few PSDs, I built Walmart’s online training tool required by every supplier (if you sell into Walmart, you’ve used my software) which delivers online, on demand training to suppliers to maximize their efficiency within the Walmart environment. This same software was rebranded, modified and sold to Tyson for sales reps, Disney University and many other companies who needed a simple yet effective online training solution for low cost and minimal effort.
