Work Experience

Software Consultant

2014 - 2016
Infusion Development
  • Contributed to many short-term delivery projects in various technologies (both front-end and back-end) for both external (mostly enterprise) and internal customers.
  • Collaborated to develop the rate calculation module in an insurance renewal SPA web application for MetLife.
  • Co-designed a client-server FX trading application with a desktop JavaFX client and AKKA messaging for Wells Fargo. Later implemented the window manager module allowing the users to set up complex window layouts (grouping and stacking) and save them as layout profiles. The complexity of the component required extending the standard JavaFX with low-level WinAPI calls.
  • Worked on Infusion's own product, Pulse, a retail device management service. It provides software installation, upgrading, monitoring, and metrics collection for a group of devices (phones, kiosks). I developed a supporting dashboard application for reporting aggregate metrics from multiple Pulse environments.
  • Performed architecture and security reviews for internal applications.
  • Created a plugin for embedding custom JIRA-sourced reports and visualizations in Confluence to be used in sales documents and reports.
  • Worked on a few small plugins for internal systems support, mostly for Atlassian products.
  • Converted a batch-driven Apache Spark app to stream processing (Spark Streaming/Kafka) for Barclays. Also created a test data generator for the engine.
  • Developed an ASP MVC web application for managing employee feedback sessions with a Bootstrap and jQuery-powered front-end and Microsoft CRM 2016 as data storage.
  • Extended the Spring MVC REST API for the next versions of iOS and Android mobile apps for PLS Logistics. The project was on a fully remote team spread across multiple timezones.

Software Consultant

2012 - 2014
Credit Suisse (via Infusion Development)
  • Helped Infusion deliver a toolset to support Credit-Suisse's main risk calculation engine, PriMo. The end product was called SWorM ('Scheduler WORkflow and Monitoring') and it improved the way the risk calculations run on top of PriMo are scheduled, designed, planned, and audited.
  • Engaged in the design and kick off of SWorM in the early stage of the project.
  • Joined the UI development team. We managed to deliver a consistent, reliable, and usable user experience for SWorM coherent with other applications across the bank.

  • Delivered many successful Opera Mini customizations for major customers from the mobile industry including Vodafone, T-Mobile, Verizon, SKT (South Korean Telecom), Bytemobile, TATA, and Motricity.
  • Managed projects for the customer's engineering teams (working on SOWs, release plans, planning functionality, managing resources).
Technologies: Pike, JavaScript, C++

Software Developer

2007 - 2008
Power Media
