Built out new "Core Platform as a Service" (Core PaaS) which enabled rapid continuous deployments of internal services across regions. I was also part of the team building a FedRAMP-authorized deployment of our platform.

Core PaaS handles both legacy (Spinnaker deployed) services and development. Adoption from teams with legacy services went from 25% to 80%, much of it driven by the improvements in testing /deployment turnaround time.

I proposed and launched an internal newsletter for my team. Soon after joining, I had noticed that we (the platform team) didn't have a clear communication channel to the other service teams. Confusion and miscommunication, yada yada yada... But within a year, service teams had come to take our monthly newsletter for granted, which was the goal.

2015 — 2018
Foundation Engineer at EvengX

Next generation cybersecurity startup focused on detecting and blocking malicious network activity at the endpoint. Starting as the sole engineer for our Windows agent, I got to grow with our tech stack and also building our backend and CI/CD infrastructure. I saw my teammates as the customers of our continuous delivery product strove to build systems and tools that make the right thing to do the easiest thing to do.

2013 — 2015
Member of Technical Staff at Acer Cloud Technology Inc.
Sunnyvale, CA

An acquisition-turned-business unit meant to function as an “internal startup.” I worked on new applications for Acer’s cloud services: the client SDK; the Orbe, a network attached storage device; a cross platform clipboard app that came out of an IDEO collaboration; and an IP camera and accompanying mobile app. I maintained our demo lab and worked closely with the sales engineers.
