The most amazing...

Work Experience

Senior Developer

2019 - PRESENT
  • Developed a CRUD app using WPF. I utilized dependency injection, ReactiveX, pipelines, asynchrony, and functional programming principles.
  • Maintained two RPA bots using Blueprism. Refactored both bots to client requirements. These bots saved 100 hours of work and enabled the client to reach their deadlines.
  • Created a bot that automates the creation, updates, and deletion of data in the tax authority website. This bot runs on demand, as requested by the client.

RPA Developer

2016 - 2019
  • Developed an automated mailer tool for the HR department using VBA.
  • Developed reusable programming objects and suited them for use in different projects in Automation Anywhere and VBA.
  • Developed a major robot for a client's sales control department using Automation Anywhere. Managed the set up of the RPA environment, stabilized the process, and added a SQL database into the process that saved reduced time spent by 40%.
  • Automated business processes for the client's accounts payable and master data departments.
  • Developed a whole solution that allows users to input and extract data from a SQL server, which I developed using VBA.
  • Automated a monthly finance report using VBA and SAP, which saved three days and ensured data integrity, which allowed the user to focus on adding new value.

Automated SAP Downloader

I developed a code that downloads data from SAP. The client needed information from the past four months, which needed to be extracted from five different transactions. Some transactions were small enough to download the 4 months together, for others, it was necessary to download into 2 months, 1 month, or half a month segments.

I developed a system that downloaded this information in the most efficient way possible, choosing the combination of periods that would be more efficient. To achieve this, the bot first downloaded the five transactions in each possible way. Then it stores how much time it took in each combination. With this information, it proceeds to execute the code in the most efficient way. Every time the code executes, the robot stores how much time it took to download and then averages it against the information it had previously, and thus determine if it needs to change how it downloads the information.

Sales Control Bot

I was a part of a major RPA project for an international retail company. The bot performed the cash count for 352 stores, allowing the client to reallocate the 15 employees that were involved with this project. The bot downloads excel files from a web portal, which are created by the stores' tellers. Then it inputs the cash register information contained in these excel file to another web portal. Once completed, it proceeds to execute the cash count in the web portal. If a discrepancy is discovered, it sends an email to the Sales Control team. Because of the volume of the data to process, the bot runs on five devices, four virtual machines and one notebook, using a queue. One of the major challenges in this process was logging each execution of the process. Because the client wanted access to this information, they wanted an Excel file. But because there were five devices trying to use this file, the process was both slow and prone to fail. So I decided to develop a small database, to which the client could access through an excel file, which solved the issue.

One thing I am proud of is that the bot not only inputs the data into the web portal, but it also controls that the data was correctly inputted, avoiding duplicates.
