As a hands on technical leader with a proven track record leading teams through the software development lifecycle, I am actively involved with the planning, architecture and prototyping of upcoming work for my team. I enjoy tackling problems head on and am not afraid to roll my sleeves up when my team has pressing deadlines. I make sure to stay on top of emerging technology trends and look for how any of them could be applicable to the software that we build.
I believe in fostering a collaborative team environment that values input from all members of the team. I am continually looking for ways to grow every member of my team and how we as a group can deliver software faster and more reliably.
My technology experience includes:
Deployment experience with Jenkins, AWS, CFN, Vagrant, Puppet, Packer, Docker, Anthill, WIX
Search Experience with Elastic Search and Solr
Experienced with both Windows and Linux
