Relevant Work Experience

Software Engineer / Espial Inc.
July 2017 - Present

At Espial I initially applied my knowledge of embedded products and C/C++ to hunt for bugs in a legacy set-top-box C++ codebase. I also aided in maintenance of the test automation framework for said codebase. I later pivoted to another role in the cloud services team, in which we performed all the engineering required for maintaining and developing a large IPTV SaaS solution. This included bug fixes, feature work, automation (test&build), releases, and if we were unlucky, cm and ops.

Web Development Intern / Donuts Inc.
June 2016 - September 2016

At Donuts I received a crash course in agile development and general software practices. I had up to this point been a pure C/C++ programmer with occasional spats of C#. Donuts operated on a HTML + python + Google Cloud stack which was completely new for me, and forced me out of my comfort zone. I credit this for strengthening my ability to pivot between languages, frameworks, and environments.

i.e I wrote a bunch of Google Cloud microservices and tools
