I approached each task with a laser focus on automation in the aim of maximizing return on effort, while validating the results of my work with peers.
Principal Engineer @ Eaze Solutions, LLC
from Apr 2018 to May 2022
I worked to validate that new deploy system with our fellow engineers: answering questions, incorporating their feedback, and making sure the project was a success by extending ownership over the end result to the entire team. 1
Finally, I worked to give the team porting our monolithic C# application tools to validate their changes. This involved coordinating a 30 person team in the construction of a series of high level integration tests across multiple areas of software engineering (mobile eng, website engineering, & backend engineering.) I gave a presentation on the results to Honeycomb. 2
Staff Engineer @ npm, Inc.
from Jul 2015 to Apr 2018
Worked primarily as a high level individual contributor, responsible for writing the ACL system, publish flow, static asset (package.json and tarball) serving, billing system, and React-based website. Coordinated team efforts as a project manager when needed, and acted as an engineering manager.
I successfully shipped major migrations of the billing system, the content delivery network (To Cloudflare Edge Workers from Fastly VCL), the ACL system, and the package publication flow. I assisted in infrastructure work, provisioning servers using Terraform and AWS and building deploy tooling in Node and Ansible. I participated in on-call rotation using Pagerduty and was relied upon to fix operational problems when both on- and off-call.
