The most amazing...
...experience I've had as a professional was migrating a PHP monolithic application to a Node.js microservices architecture.
Senior Front-end Developer
Milliman, Inc. -- LTS
- Integrated AG Grid to replace their legacy component causing recurring bugs and re-renders. This isolated a lot of complex logic that wasn't fully unit tested.
- Centralized many components into a shared library accessible to all their front-end applications. Incorporated the Carbon component library into these components and provided visual automated testing with Storybook.
- Took time to ensure new and existing features had ample automated testing in each task. Used Jest to provide unit and integration testing and Playwright for E2E tests.
- Iteratively migrated MobX-dependent components to Redux. Added custom middleware to allow both data management libraries to communicate and sync state.
Senior Software Engineer
- Architected and implemented a data feed ingestor and digestor. This back-end worker ingested updates from multiple third-party APIs with different properties and digested them into a headless REST API that fed our mobile and web apps.
- Improved operations by introducing better practices like testing (Jest + React Testing Library), using a component library that I architected, eliminating bloatware, and spending time working on tech debt each sprint.
- Brought design and engineering together to build a system that would foster a seamless transfer between the two groups. This was done through the use of Tailwind CSS, which enforced our shared design system.
- Built a Next.js web application with server-side rendering to display marketing KPIs for franchisees that were learning how to run a business.
- Wrote a RESTful API in Node.js with Express.js to serve live information from Google and Facebook Analytics.
- Developed a UI and UX matching the company's brand and feel.
- Incorporated a MySQL server to be the intermediary between third-party services and the front-end client.
- Built a custom t-shirt design web application for bulk orders. Major clients included the Utah Jazz and universities.
- Developed a PMS for the Textile Graphix administrative team.
- Managed all aspects of technology in a startup environment.
- Rearchitected the legacy platform from PHP to Node.js to make it microservices-oriented.
- Managed four learning management systems, including a legacy system, a new system, and two third-party systems.
- Maintained 10+ Angular web apps, including a shopping cart, an admin app, and lead generation landing sites.
- Integrated Salesforce within Career Step's platform.
Junior Full-stack Developer
- Assisted Devmountain with migrating its database to Salesforce.
- Built a housing portal for use by management and tenants.
PV Design Manager
- Established and managed six state offices comprising a team of 24 CAD technicians.
- Programmed a small CRM that saved the company’s most important offices from failure.
- Worked with state offices to create accurate drawings in compliance with electrical, building, and fire codes.
