Employment Experience
Apr 2015-present
Engineering Manager
Thermopylae Sciences and Technology
Arlington, VA
In addition to developing for individual projects, I was a technology leader within the company to disseminate knowledge, facilitate communication and help bridge technical gaps between the product teams and projects. While in this position I was self-directed and also filled in as interim Director of Software Engineering.
VA Conference
Technology Utilized: Python, Flask, SQLAlchemy, Alembic, Jinja2, Vagrant, JavaScript
Created a RESTful web service to track attendees and speakers at the VA Conference using BLE (bluetooth low energy) beacons and mobile devices. This was a quick turnaround project I had to create from scratch, integrate with our mobile application and deploy to production within two weeks. The product had to be stable while bursts of up to 5,000 devices updated and queried tracking data.
ODS (Orion Data Services)
Technology Utilized: Thrift, JAVA, YAML
Developed data pipelines with a team of engineers from multiple companies in an effort to collect, index and ingest data at various classification levels. This data was stored in a production JWICS environment and made accessible via the DoDIIS AppEngine (DAE).
Maryland Procurement Office
Technology Utilized: Bash-Scripting, Jenkins, Vagrant, JAVA, JavaScript (ExtJS)
Disseminated knowledge to the client on how our product and its SDK are structured. Worked closely with the customer and their developers to expand the product feature-set. Managed the project and one developer to create a custom authentication adapter for product integration. Following a company restructuring, I became the sole developer and manager for the project, and a subsequent presentation warranted additional fund allocation for the following year.
DoDIIS AppEngine Project
Technology Utilized: Bash-Scripting, Jenkins
Worked directly with the IA (Information Assurance) lead to gain accreditation for our product at the TS/SCI level. Met with company management to discuss additional features and created a LOE (level of effort) for the customer. Selected and managed one developer to assist in creating new features. Updated Jenkins, Maven and Nexus as needed to resume the long-deferred project. Delegated Google Earth globe creation to stay on schedule as new projects required my attention. Deployed an unclassified infrastructure to test new features in the customer environment.
