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.

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.
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.
